Music Track - Chess
This week's music track come from Chess. It was a musical written by the ABBA men in the 80's. It didn't do particularly well, which I think may have something to do with the concept. After all, rival chess masters, even with a strong love interest don't normally excite the masses. But one song did come out of it deservedly - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeMk7B46xg8. This is the original with Elaine Page and Barbara Dickson, both of whom have wonderful voices. The tune has also been recently recorded with the latest unlikely musical phenomenon, Susan Boyle.
