"Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing - Thanks for all the joy they're bringing - Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty - What would life be? - Without a song or a dance, what are we? - So I say thank you for the music - For giving it to me" - Thank You For The Music by ABBA (1977)
Today, the ex-Luv' singer, Ria Thielsch, celebrates her birthday. As we say in Dutch: "Hartelijk Gefeliciteerd Met Je Verjaardag!". In her honour, I've decided to repost Ria's interview, initially published on my former Luv' blog in March 2021.
Music is a huge part of everybody's existence. People's favourite songs are indeed the soundtrack of their lives. I asked Ria about her favourite tracks of all time in everyday situations. She accepted to answer my questions. Thanks Ria for making this musical interview possible.
