Actually, speaking of cheesy music, I happen to think that "The Winner Takes It All" by Abba is a fricking great song. Make of that what you wish.
That's pretty bad, man.
I have to admit to liking a couple of Abba songs, but not that one. I like "Fernando" and "Waterloo."
You gotta admit it's a great heartbreak song, though.
I hate heartbreak songs. It's one step above a Barbra Streisand song.
I think there's a distinction that has to be drawn between genuine heartbreak songs and BS heartbreak songs. Bearing in mind that the Abba song was written and recorded when both couples were going through a divorce, hence it being the only unfeigned thing they ever recorded. In fact, it makes the whole thing even more moving - it's like "Ok, we've been doing bullcrap pop music until now, but now we have to be honest with each other."
