With Hanukkah in progress and Christmas a week away, I thought it might be a good time for another edition of “oldies but goodies” – the Mamma Mia Edition.
Caveat: This post previously appeared on another Austen blog and possibly my own. At this point, I’ve written so many blog posts, I’ve lost track of them. At least, that’s the excuse I’m using today. Enjoy!
Dancing Queen – Lydia and Kitty Bennet dancing at Lucas Lodge
Does Your Mother Know That You’re Out – Lydia running off with Wickham
Lay All Your Love on Me – Darcy realizing that he has fallen for Elizabeth Bennet
Waterloo – Colonel Fitzwilliam
Thank You for the Music – Colonel Brandon upon hearing Marianne playing for the first time
Take a Chance on Me – Colonel Brandon to Marianne Dashwood
Mamma Mia – Marianne waving off warnings to stay away from Willoughby
Knowing Me, Knowing You – Willoughby saying goodbye to Marianne Dashwood
SOS – Willoughby regretting that he can’t be with Marianne (too bad!)
Slipping Through My Fingers – Emma fearing that she had lost Mr. Knightley to Harriet Smith and Catherine Morland being thrown out of Northanger Abbey
Under Attack – Captain Wentworth falling to Anne’s charms—again
Money, Money, Money – The Crawfords and John Dashwoods
Voulez Vous – Wickham, Willoughby, and all of Austen’s bad boys
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! A Man After Midnight – Any of the Austen bad girls, especially Mary Crawford and Maria Bertram
I Do! I Do! I Do! I Do! I Do! – Lizzy accepting Mr. Darcy; Jane and Charles; Elinor and Edward; Catherine and Henry (You get the idea.)
I Have a Dream – Austen fans everywhere that someone will discover a cache of unpublished Austen novels
Love to read your comments. By the way, if you saw the Mamma Mia movie, what did you think? I’m still angry at Meryl Streep for taking that part. She’s older than I am, and believe me, you wouldn’t want to see me jumping up and down on a bed.
P.S. Sophia Rose is having an e-book giveaway of my Austen-inspired mystery, Dying to Write, as well as my time-travel romance, Another Place in Time, at The Delighted Reader – ends 12/22. All you have to do to win is to give me the combination to your jewelry safe and your home address. 😉 Seriously, you just have to mention a place where you would like to go if you could travel through time. Easy peasy.
