    This cover makes perfect sense (certainly more than Suzi Q version of Brucey's 'Born to Run').

    At first my brain started to protest, because it's not them. And then I had this crazy thought, imagine if ABBA had never recorded it, and this was the first, original version. And then it sounds pretty awesome.

    And it stops you thinking about them and instead you just focus on the song itself and realise all over again that, as you say, it's pretty awesome.

    Yes, it just made me realise all over again that it's an amazing song. Even if not performed by ABBA.

    But sometimes it takes a different version to hear it for the first time. It is a fantastic song but I've heard ABBA's version so many times already I think I've taken it for granted.
