Completed at the end of 1978 at ABBA's Polar Music Studios, ‘Chiquitita’ soon emerged as the first single from their ‘Voulez-Vous’ album.
As ABBA completed the ‘Super Trouper’ album, the only thing missing was a song called 'Super Trouper.'
Capturing the Swedish four-piece in their prime, ‘Live At Wembley Arena’ album proves that ABBA were masters of the stage and the studio.
By late 1977, the Swedish quartet were on an unstoppable roll, especially in the UK.
After the 70s party, ‘Super Trouper’ boasted introspective ballads such as ‘The Winner Takes It All,’ finding ABBA retooling themselves for a new decade.
‘Lycka,’ Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ first album together, features Agnetha Faltskög and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, and reveals the start of ABBA’s genius.
In a new interview with The Guardian, the group dismiss any notion that they will continue to write or record after the release of the album.
An initial version of the track was recorded in 1978 for ‘Voulez-Vous’, but didn’t make the final cut.
The Andersson-Ulvaeus composition ‘Money Money Money’ took about a year to make the US chart, and then failed to make the top 40 there.
Treading a fine line between majestic camp and all-out cheese, ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!’ keeps pop titans like Cher and Madonna coming back time and again.
The track is celebrated as the only hit in which both the group and song names are palindromes.
On September 17, 1979, the quartet played their first-ever concert on American soil.
The group were huge all year round, but two big hits helped make summer particularly special for them.
The song written by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Stig Anderson had a varied chart history around the world.
The video for ABBA's 1976 megahit and global anthem 'Dancing Queen' has hit the memorable milestone of 500 million views on YouTube.
