She thought about singing before she started acting..............
She could have done that too!

I'm a lover of Mamma Mia but honestly didn't care much for Meryl's voice, but gosh, I will NEVER as long as I live forget the feeling I got while watching THIS scene in the theater.  It was beyond powerful.  I have never seen anyone 'act' out a song the way she did this.  There is no one like Meryl Streep and she is something very special.

She starts singing around the 30 second mark.  It amps up aroun 3:00 minutes, and 3:50 basically kills me.  Remember how huge Mamma Mia was?  That's because many people saw it over and over again.  And I read that a lot of people went again just to see this scene again, and regain that 'feeling' from this song.

Wow! That was fabulous, but do you think Pierce Brosnan felt ridiculous standing there for over 4 minutes with nothing to do but stare and touch his face?  grinsmiley

Oh gosh, yes! Laughing  It seems so awkward!  But, that said, EVERY scene with Pierce in that movie was awkward! Yikes  He was laughable, truly laughable.  In fact, I saw this in the theater with my parents, and my dad and I completely embarrassed my mom because we kept laughing at Pierce.  (And no, they weren't meant to be funny scenes HeeHee ).  But darn it, we couldn't help it!  He was just THAT bad!!! help HeeHee

This has always been my favorite Abba song. As one YouTube commenter pointed out: A group of Swedes singing in English about the Mexican Revolution...

I don't know if he still is, but Brosnan used to be a real pompous jerk. I couldn't stomach interviews with him.

Rob, my girls were big ABBA fans when they were toddlers. I think they called them the ladies, and we have a DVD of hit songs that they would dance to. It was funny. Fernando was one of their favorites.

ABBA was my first album ever....I was a huge fan of that group. My son Nick went through a stage when he really loved the group too, Cheryl! Of course he'd never admit to this now. HeeHee

Wow, I remember that Dave!!  How cool, thanks for sharing it!  Everyone is SO young...just wild to see.  Young Richard Gere, Young Kevin Costner, etc...so neat. I wonder why this stuff isn't done anymore? scratchead


Meryl's kids sure did look a lot like her!

Fun to see We Are the World again! It's been a long time. Thanks for posting it, Dave.

I wanted to see if I could name all the singers. There were some in the background I didn't recognize, but of the ones who sang lead, the only ones I couldn't name are at 1:02, 2:11, and 3:05... though I think that last one might be Kim Carnes.  scratchead

I think you're looking at:

1:02 James Ingram
2:11 Al Jarreau
3:05 Kim Carnes

Cyndi Lauper's voice kills me in this one.

1:05---James Ingram

2:10---Al Jareau, I'm almost positive.  

And yep, 3:05 is Kim Carnes.


Gosh this bring back great memories.  This was so HUGE...honestly 'kids/youth' today will never fully understand how HUGE this really was. This was part of history.  So cool. (and this was bigger than the other one...the other one I think I've only seen once.  We are the World' simply took on a life all its own. Love ).

Oh my gosh, too funny Cheryl---we both came on about the same time! Thumbsup  It took me a minute with Al Jarreau, but it hit me.

I LOVE Cyndi Lauper in this.  Can you even imagine this song without HER in it????


I just watched that twice....I feel all wound up and emotional after watching that, lol! I forgot the power and emotion not only that song evoked, but the legends that sang it. WOW. Love
