"Amazing" is a very generous description of the song! I like that Frida's voice is still in such great nick. Still, it's clearly a case of her helping a mate with a charity project, so it'd be churlish to be too critical of the song.
I'm off now to listen to 'Djupa Andetag' and fantasise about the new Swedish-language album she should make.
I found this to be quite a lovely sound - and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Frida once again - I think her voice sounds beautiful - shame she didn't get to do a few higher register parts as well, but being able to sing at such a low register is quite a skill - Frida was always wonderful at the low harmonies and I'm very pleased to hear that she can still do it
I will be getting my CD copy from ABBA The Museum webshop - naturally
I do hope having the song available on youtube does not affect sales of this song - Frida deserves a little recognition - and it's for a wonderful cause

Singing for the Foundation "Frida & Dan Daniell for children»
Now tighten the two musicians together. To celebrate the first ascent of the Matterhorn 150 years ago they added the jubilee song "1865" in English. A German version is planned.
