This month’s Glossies Made Me Do It comes from the October 8th issue of People Magazine – it has Chrissy Tiegen on the cover! However, what I was inspired to check out was Cher’s latest album, which is actually all covers of ABBA songs.

Gimme Gimme Gimme!

I listened to the whole album on Spotify first, but I’ve just bought a copy on iTunes. I love ABBA’s songs and Cher is an iconic singer. She does a fantastic job reimagining these songs. If you saw her in Mama Mia: Here We Go Again! then you already know she does ABBA proud.

All the songs are pretty iconic ABBA tracks, so you’re sure to find a favorite on there. It obviously starts with the title song, Dancing Queen, which just seems fitting for Cher.

I did have some favorites, though, honestly, I loved them all. It starts out with a kick, but then it ends with some slower songs. I think it worked well that way! Anyway, some of my favorites at the moment I write this are “The Name of the Game”, “Waterloo”, and “The Winner Takes It All.”

If you only know ABBA through the Mama Mia movies, don’t worry! All the songs are in either the first or second film (including “Fernando” which Cher sings in the sequel).

Tell me: Are you a fan of ABBA and/or Cher? Would you listen to this album?

  1. Oh man, I friggin LOVE ABBA! Would really like to hear Cher’s versions of some of these iconic songs; Waterloo is great, and is Lay All Your Love on me (not sure if that’s on there).

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Hmmm, are these playing on the radio? I love ABBA and their music but not sure about Cher singing ABBA. But if you say we’ll like it, I am sure I will. Going to check it out. Sounds like great workout music to me.

    Cher was on Ellen recently and The Talk, and I just can’t tell you how over the moon I was to see her both time. I declare it doesn’t look like she’s aged at all. I remember watching her on the Sonny and Cher show from way back in the day. Kind of cool to hear about her singing Abba songs too! Hugs…RO

  4. I caught some clips of her new album on the radio and it sounds like she does a pretty good job on the covers! I love ABBA. I haven’t seen Mamma Mia 2 yet but I know she’s in that one too.

  5. I haven’t seen Mama Mia 2 yet but am a fan of Abba and Cher – this album sounds great.
    I keep meaning to do one of these link ups – they look like fun and I really hope to do one in November 🙂

  6. That does sound like a fun album! I admit I’m not a huge ABBA or Cher fan (I mean, I like them both fine, but I don’t LOVE them the way some do) but it does sound like a great combination.

  7. Cher is out in Australia at the moment on tour actually, she’s been getting rave reviews! I can’t think of two bigger gay icons than ABBA and Cher, both catchy and songs that everyone loves to sing along to. I’m not really a Cher fan but love a bit of ABBA to dance around to and really curious to see how she would take on such iconic songs. I absolutely love The Winner Takes It All, such a breakup song. Thanks so much for sharing Lauren, going to search Spotify and check her out ♡♡♡
