Can't shake loose - Agnetha Fältskog

25 years after the fact, I think that 'Can't shake loose' was the best single from Agnetha Fältskog's album 'Wrap your arms around me'. It's not the most logical choice, since only 'The heat is on' and the title track became hits for her in 1983. But it's a great rock track, and it utilises the desperation that sometimes flares up in Agnetha's voice to full effect.

The song was written by Russ Ballard, who also wrote the more successful 'I Know There's Something Going On' for Agnetha's former Abba colleague Frida.

My collection: 7" single no. 199
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1983
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Can't shake loose' / 'To love'
