The eyes have it



Two birthdays. Two legends. Two "Angel Eyes".

    1. Agreed - and I can't imagine either singing the other song... Jx

    1. I think Ella might find it difficult to sing Abba anyway, as she died in 1996. Jx

  3. Interesting thought though! I wonder what number she could've sung?.'The Winner Takes It All' maybe!

    Nils Lundgren did do some jazz/funky interpretations of ABBA classics on the album 'Funky Abba'. I believe Benny plays keyboard on a track or two.

    1. I reckon she'd do well with "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do", "Head Over Heels" or "The Name of the Game". Jx
