Favourite songs by ABBA?

Pop royalty I don't think they get enough credit for how good they were, and people just ignore them because of gay anthems like Mama Mia and Dancing Queen, which aren't even close to my favourites

1. Knowing Me, Knowing You
2. SOS
3. The Name of the Game
4. Rock Me
5. Bang-A-Boomerang

Yours?

You know you all love them

"I've said it before, and I'll say it again: No more fucking ABBA!"





So hard to pick a favorite from all the great songs they made, but I saw no mention of Take a chance on me in your post, so I'll go with that one. Great song to listen to while driving.

Re: Favourite songs by ABBA?

One of the few artists who filled their albums with great songs - even the B sides were great.

Me and I is their best

Re: Favourite songs by ABBA?

I'm Not a big fan but I have a few greatest hits cds.
I like Chiquitita and Dancing Queen - which to me is their signature song. I also like the Winner Takes it all.
I am under the impression their music got better towards the end of their career - although they were not enjoying the same chart success in the early 80s.

Favourite ATP players: Federer, Gasquet, Ferrer.

Hottest WTA Girls: Goerges, Ivanovic, Kirilenko, Sharapova, Wozniacki.

All-Time Hottest: Anna Chakvetadze

Chiquitita This is an awesome cover, probably my favourite ABBA cover..



Their last studio album peaked at #25 in Australia, and they were huge here! I was going through they're discography the other night and was stunned at that.

Thanks

Yeah she did a TV spot over here and her album charted #3. They put on ABBA specials in prime time literally every 3 months AT LEAST and ABBA Gold always jumps back into the top 5 on iTunes It's 16x Platinum, that means atleast 1 in every 20 people here own a copy. The Best of ABBA also went 22x Platinum, Arrival went 18x Platinum and ABBA went 14x Platinum, but they changed the certs before ABBA Gold.

Does Your Mother Know? is another gem

Re: Favourite songs by ABBA?

Their songs all sound much the same actually, so they all tie for first place.

Nobody wants to admit it now, but ABBA were everyone's favourite.
