Mamma Mia hitter

21. juli 2008

Som man vel kunne forvente så puster Mamma Mia-filmen nyt liv i interessen for ABBA-sangskatten. New Musical Express kan fortælle at soundtracket var storsælgeren i premiereugen, hvor den distancerede andre ordinære udgivelser. Det er første gang siden Bridget Jones-soundtracket præsterede det samme i 2001. Nok så interessant er det, at soundtracket også har sendt ABBAs Greatest Hits-cd ind i top 10 igen. Det holder det skidt.
Lad os markere genopdagelsen med sangen Slipping Through My Fingers. Bo Green Jensen bemærker i sin anmeldelse af filmen, at man – som forælder til børn på tærsklen til voksenalderen – pludselig forstår sangens ord, når den fremføres på det hvide lærred. Fornemmelsen af, at de glider en af hænde… En smuk melodi.

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that Im losing her forever
And without really entering her world
Im glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake, I let precious time go by
Then when shes gone theres that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt I cant deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
(slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well, some of that we did but most we didnt
And why I just dont know

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers…

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Schoolbag in hand she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile…

    [...] begyndt at opkøbe hovedværker. I lørdags, hvor jeg alligevel havde besluttet mig for at købe Mamma Mia til Fruen, som ikke har snakket om andet op til udgivelsesdagen, faldt jeg over Federico Fellinis [...]
