I’m blogging today over at Writers At Play about how the Romance genre is like ABBA’s music, to quote Salon:
[ABBA’s appeal is] it’s the potent cocktail of the subliminally spiritual mixed with the flat-out libidinous…Despite the clothes, the awkward choreography, the often nonsensical lyrics, ABBA endure because there’s something spiritual and sexual and just plain sweet in their harmonies, something playfully innocent and disarmingly sophisticated.
Like ABBA, people have been for years shy about admitting that they like Romance. Come join us and chime in with your own cheesy musical favorites.
Me, I’m going to be singing Neil Diamond in my head all day.
