Happy New Year

So I learned something new today. The "Happy New Year" song played on Vietnamese radio was made by ABBA, the American disco group. I had no clue, I thought it was a song made popular on Paris by Night or something. Second thing, from reading Tet traditions on wikipedia, this song is super popular in Vietnam during Tet. I didn't really believe it I saw the comments on the below video. Things like "Happy New Year from Hai Phong City". This is pretty funny, it's almost kinda like Borat and "Everybody Dance Now".

*Sigh I'm not surprised. Most of the Vietnamese-American mainstream music is not original. :/ Even our church songs! *tear.
