ABBA - I Still Have Faith In You/Don't Shut Me Down (CD-Singles)

I don't buy one track CD singles anymore, but I had to make an exception for the ABBA singles "I Still Have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down". It's nice to have them in the collection. I'm so glad my childhood heroes are back! I can't wait for the "Voyage" album to be released.

ABBA are back with Voyage album

Wow. I still can't believe that ABBA are back, for real. I've been a huge fan since I was a child and their music means the world to me. I was terribly bullied as a child and listening to ABBA and Agnetha's solo music was my escapism. So yesterday's news about a brand new ABBA album made me so emotional. I cried through the livestream and the new songs.

It's like a dream come true. I don't care what anyone else says, I love it. The two first singles from the album, "I Still Have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down" are out digitally now and although I love both, the latter is my personal favourite of the two. I can't wait to hear the full album.

So the brand new album "Voyage" will be released on November 5 and you can pre-order it now from ABBA Voyage and most other outlets. It's available digitally, on CD, vinyl and cassette. Check out the tracklist down below. It's interesting to finally see the unreleased ABBA tracks "Just A Notion" and "Bumblebee" released. This will be iconic

"Voyage" tracklist:

1. I Still Have Faith In You
2. When You Danced With Me
3. Little Things
4. Don't Shut Me Down
5. Just A Notion
6. I Can Be That Woman
7. Keep An Eye On Dan
8. Bumblebee
9. No Doubt About It
10. Ode To Freedom

Fyr Og Flamme - Debut album on CD, vinyl and digital

Eighties pop never dies! I really love my signed copy of the fabulous debut album by Danish pop duo Fyr Og Flamme. The duo consists of the handsome guys Jesper Groth and Laurits Emanuel. They competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with the hit single "Øve Os På Hinanden" that I fell for right away.

The whole album is great but my favourite track right now is the catchy "112" which is a tribute to the sound of Danish eighties duo Laban's classic "Love In Siberia". I highly recommend this fantastic retro album, so get it now!

Jessie Ware, Keedy, Keiino, Jimmy Somerville and Eurovision

Some albums are so good that they deserve to be bought twice. This is "What's Your Pleasure? (The Platinum Pleasure Edition)" (2021) by Jessie Ware, featuring eight new tracks. Amazing retro disco album that I highly recommend.



I also bought these CD's a while back: "Save Some Love" (1991) and "Chase The Clouds" (1991) by Keedy, "OKTA" (2020) by Keiino, reissue of "Home Again" (2002) by Jimmy Somerville and finally "Eurovision Song Contest 2021".

Requiem: The London Boys Story (CD Box Set)

I'm loving the new CD box set "Requiem: The London Boys Story", just released by Cherry Pop Records. It includes the dance-pop duo's first three studio albums "The Twelve Commandments Of Dance" (1988), "Sweet Soul Music" (1991) and "Love 4 Unity" (1993), plus a ton of remixes and edits, all remastered.

The duo is best known for their singles "Requiem", "London Nights" and "Harlem Desire" which are all here, including all the remixes by the amazing PWL team. The box set is a very nice tribute to the London Boys themselves, Dennis Fuller and Edem Ephraim, who sadly passed away in a car accident in 1996. May their music live on forever.

I love my pink iPod

I recently bought a new friend, the iPod Touch 7. You're probably asking yourself: "Do they still make those?". Oh yes! As you might know, streaming isn't really my thing. I rarely use Spotify. I prefer to rip my CD's in the high sound quality I like or to buy uncompressed music files digitally.

For years, I have loved my old iPod Classic 160 GB since it could fit so much music. However, it has begun to show its age, so I bough an iPod Touch 256 GB which has even more space than the old one. It's even pink, my favourite colour. I named it DiscoPod.

It has a lot of extras that I don't really need. I mainly bought it for its big space. I also like that it won't bother me with phone calls or texts while I'm listening to music. Besides, I can't fit all my music on an iPhone so this iPod is perfect for me.

I wonder if I'm the only one who still uses an iPod?
