I've made almost that exact same drive innumerable times.  I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, about 25 miles from there.  I think Abba is a hoot and kind of fun to listen to sometimes, but why make a hard thing harder?  That's a dull drive, any way you slice it.  It's the sort of thing that iPods and CD shuffle were made for.  This guy's a masochist.

Agreed! And of any ABBA song to pick, why that one? That's like doing a Rolling Stones drive to Satisfaction, a Bruce Springsteen drive to Born in the USA (actually, that might be awesome for a midwestern drive), or a Beatles drive to She Loves You.

Yeah, the natural choice for him would have been "Waterloo," which is also the name of another city in Eastern Iowa...
