Hung Up on Madonna – Gimme Gimme Gimme ABBA

Madonna Hung Up - Abba Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

Something has been bugging me since I watched the Grammy’s last week. You know how it goes – you hear a snippet of a song on the radio, at the mall or on the TV. You know you know it, and you want to hear it again in it’s entirety – but for the life of it, you can’t damn well remember what it is.

Well that’s what happened to me last week. I really liked Madonna’s performance and loved the song “Hung Up” which I’d not heard before, and it sounded very familiar and retro and I knew she’d borrowed the backing from something that I must have heard a hundred times as a kid.

I’ve been trawling my ripped CD collection, tried Googling when something sprung to mind, and browsed Amazon to no avail.

So, just a moment ago, it popped into my head – It was Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! by Abba

And of course, now I know the answer I can find thousands of hits when Googling for it, including this one where they write on how she had to beg Abba to let her use the track.

I can now sleep tonight knowing that all is right with the world 🙂

    ABBA has the best catalog in the history of music. ABBA will go on long after Madonna is forgotten.
