I've been told that 'Bang-A-Boomerang' has now been added to the 'List', of ABBA Songs, that are to be
in 'Mamma Mia! 2'. I know that the Song is rather 'silly', but I have liked it since I first heard it, in 1976, when I
bought ABBA's 'Greatest Hits' Album. It is good that Benny & Bjorn have allowed so many catchy ABBA Songs,
to be used in the 2nd Film. It matters not, that many people will not know a lot of the Songs, when they go to the
Cinema in July & August. The Songs are very easy to recall the words to, so it will not harm the Box Office, (at all),
that several Songs will be 'new', to a great many people, who go to see the Film. (After all, every Track on 'ABBA Gold',
was 'new' to ABBA Fans, when they first heard them. Every ABBA Album Track, in Film 2, was also 'new', when those
ABBA Studio Albums 1st came out. I doubt if most Fans of 'Grease' had heard most, (if any), of the Songs in it, when
that Film came out, in 1978. I certainly knew none of them. 'Grease', was still a huge success, and the Soundtrack
sold Millions, around the World).
When the 2nd Film is released, there will not be an ABBA Compilation to match the Songs in it. I'm hoping that Universal,
(and Benny & Bjorn), realize this, and allow an ABBA Compilation to come out, with all of the Songs in Film 2.
Some ABBA Fans are expecting Film 2 to cause 'ABBA Gold' to take off again, but that only contains about 8 or 9 of the Songs
in it. Even 'More ABBA Gold' 'only' contains about 5 of the Songs from Film 2 - there may be more, when we know every ABBA
Song that is in the Film No Global ABBA Compilation contains the rest of the Film 2 Songs. Such as: 'I've Been Waiting For You',
'Bang-A-Boomerang', 'Why Did It Have To Be Me?', 'As Good As New', 'If It Wasn't For The Nights' and 'Kisses Of Fire'.
It will be rather sad, if the 2nd Film, only raises the Sales of 'ABBA Gold', when more than half of the other ABBA Songs in it are
not even on that Compilation. It will be a lost chance, for Universal to make a big impact, with a Compilation that better mirrors
what is actually sung in the 2nd Film.
