Agnetha Fältskog - Wrap Your Arms Around Me

Music to lose your virginity to from Sweden's Agnetha Fältskog, best known as the first "A" in ABBA, featuring a bold 'n' brassy guitar riff and an embarrassingly forthright chorus. Many thanks to Michele Cesana of the great Sci-Fi Pogo blog for the tip in this sparkling mix.

wonderful, indeed!

the beautiful guitar/strings-riff from 0.30 - ca. 1.10 so closely resembles to a Phyllysound-Classic that it might be sampled. Which song is it?

Hey Ano, I kind of know what u mean, but I can't pin the riff to a particular song. Lou Rawls, "You'll Never Find a Love Like Mine" and Toto, "Hold the Line" spring to mind.

Glad u dug it, thx for the comment!

Adam: thx for the villa edit!

No samples for me, just a truly distinctive Mike Chapman touch!
