Abba On The Jukebox was the debut single by Trembling Blue Stars, released back in 1996 (time flies). It's a beautiful song and, given that Trembling Blue Stars was never hugely successful, it occurred to me that not all ABBA fans will have heard it.
The lyrics are a nostalgic montage of snapshot holiday/travel memories that the songwriter had shared with his (ex-)girlfriend, including 'Abba on the jukebox at Par Sands' (Par Sands is a beach and caravan park in Cornwall, UK).
(btw from around its halfway point the song is purely instrumental; still lovely but don't hold your breath for a third verse)
Land's End at dusk A day of churches Her getting her hair cut A windswept walk to Dunnet Head Boarding a north-bound train at Inverness A rainy Cley-next-the-Sea Her swinging on a tyre Me taking her picture A station frozen in time March stars in a Norfolk sky
Her sleeping head on my shoulder With the bus heading on And the day-out done A lighthouse sending its light Out across Thurso bay at night To Blakeney Point and back again Walking in the ruins Of Binham Priory Abba on the jukebox at Par Sands A two way trip on the Bodinnick ferry
