ABBA gets happy happy happy in Hawaii

For pau hana entertainment purposes only, here’s a vintage clip of an animated-but-still-very-‘70s ABBA, singing their original song called “Happy Hawaii.”

Trust me, the track is no “Dancing Queen.” It also annoys me to no end that they mispronounce the name of our Island home … over and over.

But it’s kind of fun. It’s kind of Swedish. It’s kind of cheesy. In other words, it’s classic ABBA.

If anyone out there knows what moved Bjorn, Benny, Anni-Frid and Agnetha to craft this sugary pop confection and its accompanying cartoon clip, feel free to enlighten me.
