Bono Comes Clean On Why He Was Quiet All These Years About Loving The Bee Gees, ABBA

During his early years in Dublin, Bono has kept his love of the music of ABBA a secret from the public. He simply lacked the courage to say so. He said on a BBC Radio program that macho elements were at play because at the time, his peers preferred punk music over Swedish pop. According to the Guardian, Bono is now safe enough to claim "These simply are better tunes.

Everything in art defies empirical analysis." On the program, Edge admitted something similar. He declared, "We're huge admirers of this Scandinavian band, and our appreciation for their work has only grown over the years."

According to Yahoo Entertainment, Bono recalled the young mothers who loved Abba when he was a child in Ireland. At our neighborhood pub's closing hour, young women frequently sang "Thank You for the Music," and I would sing along, feeling quite grateful for the music, he added. The bandmates also mentioned the Bee Gees while talking about music they liked despite the fact that the performers weren't always seen as cool at the time. Massachusetts and Tragedy are "simply crazy good," according to Bono.

However, he observed that "John Lennon admitted up to appreciating the Bee Gees," which might have added coolness. The Edge stated that they were admirers of many excellent songwriters who weren't necessarily considered to be extremely hip.

But according to Bono, U2 once misrepresented Abba by fumbling one of its tunes live onstage with Benny Andersson. Bono said, "This is not 'Dancing Queen,'" despite the effort.
