So Many Abba-McCain Parodies, So Little Time

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

This morning, I admitted to a knowledge and appreciation of Abba that has for many years pained me to admit, in the context of this rather absurdist blog post by McCainiac Michael Goldfarb intended to entice Hillary supporters to the dark side through their shared admiration of Abba. Little did I know my Abba appreciation was shared by more than John McCain and Michael Goldfarb, or that our commenters' parody skills far exceed my own. In appreciation, I have assembled the best of the bunch after the jump (with bonus Abba videos!)


From hortense:


If Obama's defeated

We'll have more war!


Vote for McCain

If that's what you're for!


Or, if you don't like that, Rooo sez BISH PLZ has:


McCain, couldn't vote for you if I wanted to!


Totes exchanging Wife One for Number Two!

Oh oh oh oh oh


McCain, totes hate your spin on red white and blue!


there was something in the air that night

the stars were bright Obama

They were shining there for you and me

for liberty Obama

though we never thought that we could lose

there's no regret

if I had to do the same again

i would, my friend, Obama


Or BillyPilgrimisnotmylover:

Can you hear the Court, Ferraro?

I remember another party fight like this

in the spotlight Ferraro

you were battling for choice and strongly speaking your mind

I could see the Court

and no women were left behind

Now you're old and grey

and for many months I haven't seen the logic in your stand

Can you see the Court, Ferraro

Don't throw away your kind because it wasn't what you planned

From hortense:

Barack Obama, save us from this drama, S.O.S

That John McCain is totally insane, S.O.S.


Gimme gimme gimme McCain after midnight

Won't somebody help me chase these commies away

Gimme gimme gimme McCain after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

From hortense:

The voters will decide

The likes of me abide

And soon we all will know

Who will run the show

Obama or McCain

The Maverick or The Change

I guess we'll know this Fall

The winner takes it all


If you change your mind, I'm the first in line

Honey I'm still free

Take a chance on me

If you need me, let me know, gonna be around

If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown

Honey I'm still free

Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie

If you put me to the test, if you let me try

From hortense:

Facing twenty thousand of your friends

How can anyone be so lonely

Part of a success that never ends

Still i'm thinking about you only

(still i'm thinking about you only)

There are moments when i think i'm going crazy

(think i'm going crazy)

But it's gonna be alright

(you'll soon be changing everything)

Everything will be so different

When i'm on the stage tonight

Yeah, you guys are insane and awesome at the same time. And I've been listening to Abba all afternoon. I'm never getting these songs out of my head.
