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??!!

omg that's really weird because i heard the sign on the radio for the first time in years this morning.

i loved them when they first made it big but i think i was like 11 at the time.

I adored The Sign. I used to tape it everytime it came on the radio so I would have a whole cassette of that song only!

Here are the lyrics to The Sign:



Shock!
I got a new life
You would hardly recognize me
Im so glad
How can a person like me care for you
Why do I bother
When youre not the one for me
Is enough enough
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong
Under the pale moon
For so many years Ive wondered
Who you are
How can a person like you bring me joy
Under the pale moon
Where I see a lot of stars
Is enough enough
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong
I saw the sign and it opened up my mind
And I am happy now
Living without you
Ive left you all alone
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign

Well, Vidan Camille, I don't know who are your faves, probably some of these new babes (Sharapova, Sprem ....) but I really don't care. TENNIS IS NOT A MATTER OF AGE, and if Conchi is still able to beat players like Sprem, Petrova ...and to fight real hard vs Henin, Myskina... it means what it means, she IS one of the best players of history of course not the best, and if she wants to keep playing tennis at 32, well I don't see where is the pb. What about Martina N?? At what age did she 1st retire in 94? 37??

That said, I really used to like AOB too, esp the 1st and 2nd cd , after it sounds a bit more ridiculous EVEN though some of their melodies still are really nice.
My fave songs are

Young and Proud
Voulez vous danser
Here me calling
Waiting for Magic
Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry
Edge of Heaven :hearts:
Strange Ways
My Dj Vu :hearts:
Blooming 18
