For song 26:365 I’m going back to ABBA and playing the song I Wonder (Departure) from the 1977 album ABBA: The Album. It was actually originally part of a ‘mini-musical’, known as The Girl with the Golden Hair (a line from Thank You For The Music) which the band performed at the end of their 1977 concerts. The song is about the decision to leave everything you know in pursuit of something greater, and is said to reflect Frida’s life story as she left her young family to pursue her musical career.
I hope you enjoy my version. If it’s your first time on the site, find out more about the 365 Songs project. If you’re looking for more ABBA songs, have a listen to my Tribute to ABBA album or check out my 2015 collection of ABBA songs from my archives.
