Mr. Peenee reminds me with his own post, that secretly, I'm not much of a fan of Abba, (please try not to hate me for my heresy).
When I was young, I actually hated them. They grated my last nerve. In the intervening years, however, I've grown to appreciate them more and more.

I see his name is Dominic Cooper. That rings a bell.

The exact same questions that "Mamma Mia" will leave me with, I'm sure.
