Day four favourite song – The Winner Takes It All

Another beautiful song. Representative of three divergent themes for me.

Firstly, shit does happens and life is not fair. But we can recover and once more prosper. You win some, you lose some.

Secondly, a personal emancipation of sorts. It was not cool to love ABBA when I was a self-conscious teenager. Now, I do not care what others think, about my musical taste, or other factors.

Thirdly, a bit of a wink to my competitive streak and liking to win (i.e. social basketball and coaching). Maybe mellowed some but winning still feels good! Just part of human nature most of us need to learn to moderate, else we just become ugly. Here’s hoping.

I don’t want to talk
About the things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history
