    Default Abba

    This is a Björn and Benny song.
    They needed some female voices and they took their girlfriends to the studio

    Music critics noticed the girlfriends voices - both of them were wellknown singers in Sweden then.


    You can see they have children on stage for this song



    I think it was the first time they performed dancing queen the night before swedens king got married

    Björn and Benny made some musicals Chess , Kristina from Duvemåla and was involved in Mamma Mia.
    Frida and Agnetha made some soloalbums but not lately.
    Their song Waterloo was voted as the best song ever in the Eurovision song contest some years ago and no member from Abba was present.
    I think Benny said something ABBA was in the past and he had moved on.
    You have to remember the last years in ABBA there were divorces and probably hard feelings
    But you can change your mind



    BAO-Benny Anderssons Orchestra have been popular in Sweden recent years.
    You can see in some songs Björn Ulveus has made the lyrics.
    Benny said it´s so fun to play live with BAO,ABBA was more work in the studio than playing live.
    This song was number one in Swedish toplists for swedish songs ´for very long time,
    More than a year maybe 2.


    It seems they have started to play ABBAsongs in BAO


    I prefer when Agnetha or Frida sing ABBAs songs
    Soldiers,from ABBAs last album Visitors


    I think this was their last performance together

    Like an angel passing through my room


    They made some versions of this song and I read the other versions will be released in visitors deluxe album in the end of this month.
    In the version which made the album there are only 2 ABBAmembers,Frida and Benny.
    They were alone in the studio and I suppose it couldn´t be easy, considering that they had been a couple for many years but Benny had met another woman and wanted a divorce.
    No wonder Frida sounds sad in this song.

    I don´t know what the lyrics really are about but this song remind me of Michael-most thing does .
    I see him as a free spirit and on the other side he met other free spirits who had been there for a while and knew things

    I love when Frida and Agnetha sing together.
    They are both great singers but their voices together are amazing

    I have been listening to some of ABBAs latest work lately when I got another of their songs on my mind today.
    It´s a song I haven´t listened to for ages and I don´t know why it was there
    I dedicate it to Michael, and Michael I love you I really do

    This is before ABBA, but I think the song fits in a Michael Jackson forum


    Annifrids mother was Norvegian, her father was German.
    Germany occupied Norway during World War II and she was born six months after it was over.
    Norvegian girls who had fallen in love with soldiers from Germany weren´t popular.
    Norway and Sweden are neighbours and Annifrid came to Sweden with her mother and grandmother.
    I assume she sometimes have dreamt about Neverland where sorrow don´t exist

    I´ve read they have sold about 360 -400 million albums.
    ABBA Gold greatest hits was released 1992 about 10 years after the group split up.
    Worldwide sales until 2009 were 38 millions
    I don´t know if it´s true it is the third best-selling album of all time in the UK as of March 2012
    It has been on UK top 100 for 500 weeks and holds the title of longest time spent in the album charts.
    At least in the beginning of 2012.
    The members in ABBA haven´t been out promoting it
    ABBAs songs are played on and on and on

    And someone way down here loses someone dear."

    I haven´t really thought that much about the lyrics in ABBAs songs earlier.
    I read the lyrics on the albums but I guess I didn´t really pay attention to them.
    But I´m older now and can understand the lyrics better.
