ABBA

Some people don't realize what should be obvious, if they'd only paid attention. Case in point, I didn't know why the Swedish popular music group ABBA was called that.

Turns out it is simple. The letters are the first initials of the group members' names.

Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, Anni-Frid

Yes, I like their music.

They've been selling millions of albums a year since they started in 1972. I am listening, on headphones, to the group as I type this, running the KDE music application
