DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. "Waterloo" was a big ABBA hit...
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "WATERLOO")
ABBA: (Singing) Waterloo, promise to love you forevermore.
GREENE: ...Which makes this news out of Waterloo ironic. A former band member wants to put a restaurant in that London district. It would be called Mamma Mia! The Party. A similar place has done well in Sweden. But Waterloo residents are fighting the idea, saying they don't want crazy ABBA fans everywhere. I mean, how can they resist?
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "MAMMA MIA")
ABBA: (Singing) My, my - how can I resist you?
