for "Fernando"
In the study group's second year at Greendale Community College, Dean Pelton threw a Halloween bash at the library. In order to keep costs down, he skimped on some of the party supplies such as using his own MP3 player to provide the music and purchasing rations from an army surplus store. One of the rations Pelton mistook for taco meat was mysteriously labeled "Classified Phoenix" and ended up causing any student who ate it to get sick. The infected students begin attacking the other party goers. Annie suggested that lowering the buildings temperature could reverse the infection. One by one the study group members were infected until only Troy was left. In a desperate attempt to save his friends he fought his way to buildings thermostat through the infected students and lowered the temperature. As this happens, the song "Fernando" can be heard playing on the library's PA system. The song was first heard in the Season Two episode "Epidemiology."

The song's lyricsEdit

Abba - Fernando04:15

Abba - Fernando

Lyrics:


Can you hear the drums Fernando?
I remember long ago another starry night like this
In the firelight Fernando
You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

They were closer now Fernando
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

Now we're old and grey Fernando
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
Do you still recall the fateful night we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando
Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando...



TriviaEdit

"Fernando " is a single from the Swedish pop group Abba written by band members Benny Anderson and Björn Ulvaeus. It was first released in 1975 as a solo single for Anni-Frid Lyngstad on her Swedish solo album "Frida ensam". At first it was titled "Hernandez" but was changed at the last minute due to a suggestion from their limousine driver Peter Forbes. He was friends with Tony Fernando, a wealthy exports director for celebrities, and suggested "Fernando" instead. The song became one of ABBA's best-selling singles, with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide and topping the charts in at least 13 countries.



Anni-Frid Lyngstad - Frida Ensam (1975)
Anni-Frid Lyngstad's album "Frida Ensam"
ABBA was a Swedish pop band formed in 1972 made up of Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Anderson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The band name is an acronym comprised of the first letters of each of the members. They were an international sensation selling 380 million albums and singles worldwide becoming one of the most successful musical acts of all time. Fältskog and Ulvaeus, as was Lyngstad and Andersson, were romantically involved with each other at the beginning of the bands inception. However, both relationships ultimately ended and the band eventually broke up in 1982.
