How can one celebrate New Year in Sweden without ABBA?
The song "Happy New Year" is featured on the group's 1980 album Super Trouper, but the song originally had the much more creative working title "Daddy Don't Get Drunk on Christmas Day". I wonder why they dropped that name.
Did I mention that every woman with Swedish ancestors can sing like Agnetha Fältskog? It's because of some gene mutation, according to a magazine I read once.
Well. Soon we enter an entirely new decade of films, which Tim Burton starts off in a (hopefully) spectacular manner with Alice in Wonderland (Swedish premiere March 12th). No one can stop me - I will see it at the theater! I mean, Stephen Fry is the friggin' Cheshire Cat.
Happy New Year everyone!
Mia Wasikowska as Alice.
Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen.
Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter.
