I love..Ace of Base...there I said it...how about u?

Hey all,

I'm still a big fan of Ace of Base. Even their new stuff is good (did you know they had 3 new albums after the Sign?). I'm not old (I'm 23) and I listen to good music, I swear to god, but I love their music. I fully realize that their lyrics are simply horrendous and nonsensical, but still there is something to be said for catchy hooks...


thoughts??!!

I was just listening to them yesterday

I have a couple of their CD's, they are great

I love Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry the best

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

ace o base = 2 hit wonder.

i like two of there songs, yet i wonder why?

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

I saw the sign...

I think they had much success in Germany back in 1994...

They actually had a new cd two years ago called "Da Capo". It wasn't bad at all. They are planning for their fifth release next summer.

Their hits include (top ten):

1. The Sign (1)

2. All that She Wants (1)

3. Don't Turn Around (7)

4. Beautiful Life (10)

5. Cruel Summer (6)

Regional hits:

Lucky Love (Europe, Asia)

Always Have, Always Will (Europe)

C'est La Vie (Europe)

Beautiful Morning (Europe)

Life is A Flower (Europe/Asia)

Happy Nation (Europe)

I got this from a website...
