Mama Mia! It's the summer hit of the summer, and trailing in the wake of My Big Fat Muriel's Wedding come Abba songs, trickling into the lower reaches of the charts. And if something not-especially-unusual happens - even down the bottom of the single charts - Gennaro Castaldo has an opinion to share:
"Right now, their sales are rocketing again thanks to the huge exposure being given to their music by the success of the Mamma Mia film.
"Amazingly, Abba Gold is back in our top 10, while the cast recording soundtrack to Mamma Mia itself could easily end up as our biggest-selling album this week.
"Further evidence of the band's enduring appeal comes in the form of the singles charts, which show the likes of Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Mamma Mia all threatening to re-enter the official UK top 100 on the strength of downloads alone."
We're struggling to understand how a consistent selling act's best-of collection selling strongly during a period of attention on them is then described as "amazing". And if "most" people would chose them as a guilty pleasure, what is there to be guilty about, exactly?
