A song originally intended to be submitted for the Eurovision song contest, that plan was scuppered when the UK contest went in house for selection, but was rescued by the UK’s top ABBA tribute act Chique (AKA ABBA Chique to their fans https://www.abbachique.com/ ), and is dedicated to ABBA ahead of their forthcoming new music.
Lets face it, when you think of Eurovision you think of ABBA.
According to the composer, AJ Grain, “I had a dream” as the song goes, when young that he had composed the UK entry for Eurovision. That dream remained vivid, as such he composed a song years later, very Eurovision, VERY ABBA intending to submit to the song contest, BUT due to various setbacks, and finally the contest being taken private and closed to public submission, the dream seemed over and the song looked destined for the dusty shelves of history.
BUT after watching a tribute show on BBC TV, staggered by one particular acts performance, the song was offered to the UKs go to ABBA tribute act, Chique ABBA Tribute. Ainsley, manager and singer (Anni-Frid) with group said “we took one listen and instantly recognised the ABBA sound and style” The song was recorded under lockdown conditions, mixed and mastered over several weeks.
The song is essentially about the groups relationship, despite the ups and downs, their friendships have endured throughout the years.
The song is also a tribute in itself to ABBA from a fans point of view, about a couple, and their relationship with ABBA’s music through out the years, and like ABBA have shared the same experiences of friendships, break ups, good and bad times, but in the end whose love for each other has endured throughout the years.
A version of the song was even sent to Benny Anderson in Sweden. The song also references one of ABBA’s songs in its lyrics, (can you guess which one?)
Ainsley from Chique Abba Tribute said “ABBA fans have been starved of new material for so long, so we thought we would be the warm up act for the real thing”. So here it is, (the song the UK could have had for Eurovision) the greatest tribute, by the hottest tribute to ABBA to the greatest supergrouper in the world, ABBA.
The video is set on an abandoned stage, symbolising the recent effect of lockdown, and features the virtual story of the tribute band on large monitors, including footage of early gigs, concerts and festivals over the years PLUS a special guest appearance by ABBA during Chique ABBA Tribute’s own SKY NEWS interview. The band were interviewed by SKY TV news when ABBA originally announced they were reforming for new music releases.
