CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU
“…In these old familiar rooms,
children would play.
Now there’s only emptiness,
nothing to say...”
ABBA's knack of creating pop gems has at times detracted from the darker themes within the lyrics. Some of the group's saddest lyrics lay hidden among upbeat and irresistible pop hooks. "Knowing Me, Knowing You" is one example of the Swedish group's skill in songwriting and production.
The 1977single released in 1977, lifted off the previous year's 'Arrival' album, reached #1 in the UK, Europe, Mexico and South Africa.
Bjorn Ulvaeus' lyrics describe the end of a relationship. He refers to the emptiness and silence in the couple's home during happier times.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
