Have You Seen This? Dancing Queen for Swedish King
Try not to be jealous of this ABBA-based birthday treat given to the king of Sweden. - photo by Martha Ostergar
NOT DENMARK You can dance, and you can jive, but you probably will never get a royal birthday treat like Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden got Saturday.

Of course, being a king of an entire country affords you luxuries and gifts that the unwashed masses (aka you and me) will never enjoy on a personal level. Luckily for us, we live in the YouTube age where people record everything and post it online for us all to enjoy.

As is logical, any musical gift in Sweden has to include the Swedish disco quartet ABBA, right? Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid dont show up themselves in this video, but one of their biggest hits, Dancing Queen, does.

I dont know about you, but I feel that an excellent marching band can make just about any song fresh and new (if not entirely better), and this royal marching band sure puts a fantastic spin on this disco classic.

Whether its my Swedish roots, my love of marching bands, my excellent taste in 70s music, or a mix of all three, I find myself working toward a new #LifeGoal after watching this video. So maybe someday youll watch another video and youll see this girl, youll watch that scene, and youll be digging this dancing queen (who is digging an ABBA marching band birthday treat).
