40 Year Itch: Love Me or Leave Me

The Clintons in 1975

Abba: I Do I Do I Do

    It seemed like every 1975 song had a saxophone. But none sounded quite as cheesy as the repetitive mid-chart hit, "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do", by Abba. Melody Maker's reviewers said "This single is so bad, it hurts."
    Naturally it went #1 in Switzerland.

  "I Do I Do I Do I Do"  would eventually become a top karaoke choice by drunk sorority girls everywhere. And Muriel's Wedding made sure we'd never be able to buy an Abba collection without its inclusion.
