No prizes, but, if it's a wet afternoon in Poughkeepsie, Lompoc, Nonville (I've been there) or Auchtermuchty, perhaps you would like to see how many Abba song titles you can find in this review:

Mamma Mia!
By Robert Dawson Scott for The Times

CAN you hear the drums Fernando? Strictly speaking, that’s one of the few hits which is not in the great Abbafest that has arrived in Edinburgh for a 12-week run.

It was beyond even Catherine Johnson’s skills as librettist to get a number about the Spanish civil war into a show about a wedding on a Greek island. But as everyone must know by now, most of the tunes are there. That’s the name of the game, you might say.

I've been wondering if there's anything in Mamma Mia for someone who's not an Abba fan.

...Because, frankly, I couldn't name a single Abba tune if my life depended on it.
