As we all eagerly await Abba‘s first new music in over 35 years let’s take a look at on of their best known and most loved songs.
‘Super Trouper’ was released on the 3rd November 1980 and it was to be ABBA’s ninth and final number one. It was written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and the title of the song refers to a big light thing used in large concert venues.
When you listen to the lyrics some of them are quite sad but for me it’s still a ‘happy’ song.
In my opinion this is exactly how to do a cover song. Camera Obscura, a Scottish indie pop band from Glasgow took this song and really owned it. I really, really like it and it’s always on our Sunday playlist. The band released the song in 2007 with their ‘Tears For Affairs’ single.
What do you think? Do you prefer the original, the cover or neither?
