RE: (TV) Gabba Gabba/ABBA

Don't underestimate ABBA's influence on the 70's new wave - Nick Lowe modeled the production after the Swedish group's sound on one of the best records of that decade: "Armed Forces". Also, Elvis Costello openly declared his envy of Bjorn and Benny's song writing skills - a fact that, at that time, was a bit annoying to us Swedes who didn't estimated ABBA very much, and who saw them mainly as a commercial enterprise.
