Frida said some years ago that she wasn´t into popmusic of today but in comparison to other newer female popstars she felt that she and Agnetha had been so innocent.
If I say newer popstars it´s stars that came after ABBA was active.

Judge for yourselves I suppose I have posted the songs earlier but here´s ABBA´s concert in Wembley 1979.
It´s live
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/_qr-fO3udqA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

It says the whole concert but the old hymn in the beginning is missing and I believe they ended with as old friends do, but the later maybe was extra number.
By the way their designer said the colors of their clothes were inspired by the colours in a glacier.
He also said he could show a piece of cloth to Frida and she said yes or no at once before he even had designed a garment.
Agnetha was more unsure then.
She´s younger but it can also be how interested you are in clothes.

Another thing Björn mentions the year of a child

ABBA didn´t do a christmasalbum but Agnetha did one with her daughter and Frida made some songs

Stars are singinging about a bigger star, the star over Bethlehem
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/FmYeZh3KthU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Both Agnetha and Frida made this song, I had a problem to chose which one to post until I found this with both of them.I wish the had sang it together bot I still think it´s beautiful
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Loa7ugsiBwg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

It shines a star strangely gentle, to the east in the sky she stands.
She shone over the world man's turmoil and strife for nearly two thousand years.
When the day gets dark and when the snow falls white, then she progresses closer, then she comes here
and then you know, that soon it's Christmas

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/29cm7k100CU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



Thou star above Betlehem
O, let your gentle light
Come shining in with hope and serenity
Into every home and house

In every poor dark heart
Send a mild ray
A ray of light of God's love
In sacred Christmas days

I watched 4 documentaries of Abba during xmas holidays and enjoyed every minutes of them:)

Sky arts and BBC4 showed these
ABBA - When Four Became One
ABBA - Dancing Queen
Joy of Abba and documentary of Agnetha


Did you see or heard Agnetha and Gary Barlow (Take That) duet?

The document about Agnetha, they showed how Gary asked her to do duet with him and she did, then Gary asked her to do it live, she started getting nervous because she doesn't like to do live shows.
Obviously eventually she agreed to appear live:clapping:
She still has a stunning voice, a little lower that it used to be but nevertheless stunning.

I wonder if there is going to be reunion concert this year to mark 40th anniversary?

Hi Treasure, I´ve read that The day before you came was their last finished song but i don´t know if that´s correct.
This should be their last recording in january 1983 a short time before they split up,but without Frida

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/L9ovDlvndxg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Look at little Christian, Agnethas and Björn´s son, holding daddys legs at 0.47.
It says in the information that it was a demo for the musical Chess.
The song, with another lyrics was included in the musical just like some other songs Björn and Benny worked on which somehow didn´t fit with ABBA.
If ABBA hadn´t split up I think the song had been on another ABBA album.

Bubs,it was nice to see that Agnetha really did the duet on stage.
I think it was a video recent years with Agnetha and Björn and when people asked about a reunion of ABBA she didn´t say no but it had to be something very special,connected with a charity.
I´ve noticed the duet was for children in need.

You can see here where Agnetha and Björn visit the premiere of Mamma MIa in Copenhagen that Agnetha is holding Björns arm now and then, for example when they are on stage at 2.49

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/bl93_1-SbJQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Frida has said earlier that Björn is a gentleman and he knew Agnetha wasn´t comfortable on stage and
all the fuss around so I think he supported her.
Like all friends do.
I won´t let you go is a song from one of Agnethas soloalbums

Abba – Two For The Price Of One

He had what you might call a trivial occupation
He cleaned the platforms of the local railway station
With no romance in his life
Sometimes he wished he had a wife
He read the matrimonial advertising pages
The cries for help from different people, different ages
But they had nothing to say
At least not until the day
When something special he read
This is what it said:

If you dream of the girl for you
Then call us and get two for the price of one
We're the answer if you feel blue
So call us and get two for the price of one
If you dream of the girl for you
(if you are dreaming of someone who might be right for you)
Then call us and get two for the price of one
(why don't you call us and you'll get two for the price of one)
We're the answer if you feel blue
(we may be the answers to your problem, a chance with we two)
So call us and get two for the price of one
(why don't you call us and you'll get two for the price of one)

He called the number and a voice said, 'alice whiting'
The voice was husky and it sounded quite exciting
He was amazed at his luck
The purest streak of gold he'd struck
He said, 'i read your ad, it sounded rather thrilling
I think a meeting could be mutually fulfilling
Why don't we meet for a chat
The three of us in my flat
I can't forget what I read'
This is what it said:

If you dream of the girl for you
Then call us and get two for the price of one
We're the answer if you feel blue
So call us and get two for the price of one
If you dream of the girl for you
(if you are dreaming of someone who might be right for you)
Then call us and get two for the price of one
(why don't you call us and you'll get two for the price of one)
We're the answer if you feel blue
(we may be the answers to your problem, a chance with we two)
So call us and get two
(why don't you call us and you'll get two)
For the price of one...

She said, 'i'm sure we must be perfect for each other
And if you doubt it you'll be certain when you meet my mother'

I remember I was so surprised when I saw the movie because I didn´t know they were playing so much music from ABBA.I didn´t know they had been so big in Australia.
I think it was a good movie both sad and fun.

ABBA fanclub had a fanmeeting 2006 and the group Ella Rouge performed Susy Hang Around
[video=youtube_share;DR_lOsIpSOc]http://youtu.be/DR_lOsIpSOc[/video]
I suppose fans knows the song but otherwise it´s not that wellknown.
The reason for why that song was chosen can be that it was the only song where Benny sang the leadvocals.
The singer in Ella Rouge is Benny Anderssons youngest son.
I think he´s born 1982 and didn´t grow up with ABBA the same way his 20 year older brother did.

Ludwig Anderson , Ella Rouge in Jekyll N Hyde

[video=youtube_share;RGefh6yP2A0]http://youtu.be/RGefh6yP2A0[/video]


Benny´s oldest son Peter Grönwall in the group one more time.
They wrote the song together

[video=youtube_share;9OluwHkWI_s]http://youtu.be/9OluwHkWI_s[/video]

One more time in eurovision song contest, they came third
[video=youtube_share;IK5lf-zC2xY]http://youtu.be/IK5lf-zC2xY[/video]
Peter and Nanne wrote the song together

People told that Benny and Frida fell in love at once when they met, but for Peter and Nanne( in the long dress) it took years before they found out they loved each other.
They have two sons together, the sons are songwriters too
[video=youtube_share;MnBkVTpG-Qs]http://youtu.be/MnBkVTpG-Qs[/video]
It´s the singer and drummer.

They talked about they wrote songs then rejected it,wrote new rejected it and so on.
I suppose they learned a lesson from grandfather Benny who said only 5% of all the songs he and Björn wrote were good enough for release.You have to look for the diamonds

It´s now 40 years since ABBA won Eurovision songcontest with Waterloo.
I read there are going to be a big party tomorrow in London, ABBAs spokesperson Görel Hanser said maybe 1-2 of the members will be there.
First thought so they share a spokesperson and next is she still around with ABBA things.
I guess they still can´t make it without her, like they sing on this song for her 30 years birthday.

[video=youtube_share;FNkt4ConZN8]http://youtu.be/FNkt4ConZN8[/video]

If you wonder is it Benny or Björn singing in some places it´s not.
Stickan Andersson, their manager sings on it too.

Some years later Stickan became 50 years
Hovas witness -Hova was the place where Stickan grew up
[video=youtube_share;ODpYVFpCw0w]http://youtu.be/ODpYVFpCw0w[/video]

Benny and Frida were still a couple in the beginning of 1981.
There were disagreement between ABBA -I suppose most Björn and Benny -and Stickan, he thought the songs should be around 3 minutes and there was something about the tone too..
They sing we think you will be happy if we raise a semitone.
They also sing how Stickan travels to Honolulu and if he arrives by schedule his wife is in Amsterdam and the luggage in Rom.

ABBA in an interview 1977 where they talk about media and other thing.
They said they were a group but in the group there were 4 individual persons with different opinions

I think they sent the tv programme direct so they could talk free.

Benny and Björn wrote songs for Josefin Nilsson , I think they made one album.
She was a wellknown artist in Sweden then working in a popular group and they had shows scheduled so she couldn´t say yes at once when Benny asked if she wanted to work with them.
There are some silly questions but here Benny says he was inspired from classical music,the reason ABBA split up was that Benny and Björn would work together with Tim Rice to make a musical
[video=youtube_share;NZFdP2CKdAo]http://youtu.be/NZFdP2CKdAo[/video]

He said one of his favorites ABBA-songs then was their last recorded song "the day before you came."
Björn and Benny wanted to do a musical, they were interested in a story
Agnetha is telling her story -but she´s not happy..
[video=youtube_share;1HnOFwqpLRQ]http://youtu.be/1HnOFwqpLRQ[/video]

Is she meeting her lover, is she going to be abused,murdered , did she commit murder?
Björn said the music is hinting at it..so what is it?

Interpretation[edit]Some interpret the song about "the ordinary life of a woman the day before the arrival of her lover".[2][22] Simon Frith in The Cambridge Companion to Pop and Rock says the song, his favourite from ABBA's catalogue, is about "the wonder of falling in love by flatly documenting how banal life was before love struck".[23] Christopher Patrick, author of ABBA: Let The Music Speak, says the "account of one ordinary woman's mundane and predictable daily existence" is made sobering as it becomes evident that she doesn't have the lover she yearns for.[3] Malcolm Womack in his article Thank You For the Music: Catherine Johnson's feminist revoicings in Mamma Mia! says the song illustrates a common ABBA theme, in which "the unremarkable woman [is] given purpose by a remarkable man...most often...through romance". He interprets the song as a female narrator listing the bland events throughout her day "until she is rescued from [it by a lover]".[24] However, others interpret the song as depicting the final events in a woman's life before her death. Tom Ewing of Pitchfork comments that the narrator describes the events "on the day before it is changed forever: By what, we never learn." He turns to journalist Taylor Parkes for the answer, whose 1995 essay on ABBA talks about "the spectral choirs of backing vocals suggest[ing] a murderer as much as a lover". He goes on to argue that this song epitomises ABBA's central theme, which is that "life is trivial and nothing happens, but the somethings that might happen are worse".[25] Tom Ewing of Pitchfork notes that the narrator is providing a "hesitant reconstruction" of the events leading up to she meets someone who "we assume is her lover". He comments on the banal details of the day (that come alive through Agnetha's singing technique), which are "contrasted by keening backing vocals of...dread", implying the "You" is in fact referring to a "killer, not partner".[26] Priya Elan of Pitchfork expands on this theory by suggesting that "the protagonist is a ghost, who is eerily detailing the minutiae of her daily life before her murderer – the “you” of the title – ended her life". He adds that despite the theory sounding "far-fetched", the "celestial harmonies" of Frida and Benny throughout the verses, and the harmony (which he suggests is actually shrieking) in the middle eight gives added weight to this interpretation. He adds that it makes the final line "a bit more chilling" due to its ambiguity.[27] Kulture explains that the song "depicts a woman['s] strenuous [and] repetitive daily life at the office and at home, the day before...she meets the man of her life". It then goes on to add that "there is something wrong", in that "instead of being a happy song about complete solitude", the song is driven forward "by an overwhelming sadness". It draws the conclusion that "when she met the man [her life] became even worse", for unspecified reasons that might include "fear, confinement, [or] beatings".[5] One Week II One Band also asks "Is it violent?", citing similarities with the 1960s song “Past, Present And Future” by The Shangri-Las, which has references to sexual abuse.[28]

There are many other possible interpretations. One of the main ones involves the protagonist retrospectively thinking back to the gloomy day before she met her lover who has since left her or even died (for example watching the coffin be lowered as she sings). This is supported by the music video showing a relationship blossoming and then falling apart, and in the final scene (which takes place in a theatre), Agnetha is wearing black and the other ABBA members look as though they are at a funeral. The narrator is only now reflecting on her life before she met her lover, and realising that she was just going through the motions in a worthless existence. She realises that her life changed for the better because of her love. She now sees the mundanity of the life she lived because she has to live that life again, only now knowing what she is missing and not able to live in blissful ignorance. The lyrics are therefore vague but in present tense ("I must have left the house at eight because I always do"), as she has to remember her previous routine, so she can pick it up again. The only time when she speaks with certainty is about the train leaving on time. In the music video, the lover is seen to be running after the train, because the narrator wishes she had been late and had therefore never met him. That is one of the few parts of the story that is essential to her current unhappiness, and is therefore the only concrete fact.[29][30] One Week II One Band says "The conceit of “The Day Before You Came” is simple and could be rather sweet – it’s about trying to remember what life was like before you met your lover. The lyrics reconstruct a typical day – tentatively, because life has changed so much now the singer can hardly remember the her that used to be." Though adds "Agnetha sounds bereaved – the world she’s left, and is singing about, is obviously beyond recovery, and there’s a longing in her voice sometimes as she recounts even the most banal details. And...in place of the chorus there’s a series of ghostly choral howls, wordless cries filled with sorrow." It further explains "it’s about loss: an utterly ordinary lifestyle which turns out to be something worth mourning." It also suggests that to the narrator, "love [is] a threat to [her] autonomy, as is, her life may have been mundane but at least if was her life."[28]

The narrator has also been interpreted as being a murderer, who is, the following day, recounting the events in order to form an alibi. She did it in the unaccounted for 2 hours between leaving work and arriving home - spoken about at the end of verse two. (She leaves her house at 8 and arrives at work at 9:15, yet she leaves work at 5 and arrives at home at 8). This part of the song is sung with much gusto and passion in order to convince the authorities, while the rest is sung with a feigned sadness. The theatre scene is placed in the music video as the narrator is merely performing, trying to entertain the three policemen/detectives, played by the other 3 band members, who are not convinced of her story. The song has a melancholy tone because deep down the narrator knows she will not get away with the murder. Frida's shrill operatic background vocals in the instrumental breaks symbolise the murder. They are performed twice - once in the place within the narrative where it actually takes place, and another time after the narrator has concluded her story, as she dwells on her murder. Her alibi is why is very direct and knowledgeable about the times in her story, and vague about everything else.

Another interpretation is that the entire song being a dream that the protagonist tries to recall after waking up – her tragic life being the "you" (supported by the vagueness of the lyrics). If the event the song is building up to is in fact her murder (and she is staring her murderer in the face whilst singing this song), the vague recollections may be due to her being drugged. She could also have a terminal illness, and be, after death, going through the final moments before her inevitable death. Another interpretation is that, throughout the song, the narrator has a sense of hope that her repetitive gloomy day will somehow get better, but singing from the perspective of the following day (which turned out exactly the same), she knows deep down this will not be the case. "She keeps living her office life in attendance of what should be coming but isn't. The guy in the train is a dream, in the end he does not materialize. That is why the song ends so sad, while continuing the theme of the song."[31][unreliable source?] The constant referring to "rain" throughout the song is seen by some to have a symbolic meaning, perhaps of crying. The man in the music video has been interpreted as being a dream of the narrator, which is why, as the train goes off into the distance, the song ends on a melancholy tone (the happy dream has come to an end). The entire song may be the narrator's life flashing before her eyes just before she dies.[32]

80s45s says that the "clockwork rhythm [of the] melancholic synthesizers and multi-tracked backing vocals" emulates the "relentless, yet comforting [sound] of the commuter train [as seen in the video clip]", and that the song is in fact about "the alienation of modern life". He says the narrator lives in "quiet desperation", something many can relate to, and recounts the tedium of her day-to-day life "as if to convince herself of her purpose in existing". He argues that "the song is about the day when her self-sufficiency ceases to sustain her [and when] succumbing to the pressure of loneliness, she trades her solitary stability...for love...[a] flimsy...defense against the emptiness of existence". 80s45s interprets the "powerful sense of finality [and the] baleful triumph [as the music swells in the outro]" as her being "resigned to the impossibility of returning to former comforts having once left them".[22]

While the entire song is leading up to something coming, and the narrator describes how mundane her life is before this event takes place, it is not explained what actually happens after the thing comes, something which remains a "pop mystery" like the "identity of the subject of Carly Simon's 'You're So Vain'". After being asked by The Times about this on March 26, 2010, Ulvaeus "smiled enigmatically" and said: "You've spotted it, haven't you? The music is hinting at it".[1][33

There is ABBA and there is Abba...
ABBA had to ask for permission to use the name because it was already occupied..
If you come to a store in Sweden and see tins of fishproducts and you can read the name Abba , it has nothing to do with the group ABBA.
http://www.abba.se/produkter/
It´s possible that ABBA members eat Abbas herrings..most swedes do.

Back to the collaboration between Björn,Benny and Josefin Nilsson.
This reminds me of the the day before you came,Benny said Sweden is a melancholy country

[video=youtube_share;4xFC9OUhEKM]http://youtu.be/4xFC9OUhEKM[/video]

I don´t know what Björn meant with the title Where the whales have ceased to sing, it makes me think of what happens to whales, orcas, dolphins in the wild and in captivity..and then I found another songs.
I´m not sure if Benny´s son is cowriter or if it´s writen only by his daughter in law, Nanne Grönwall.
Tissues might be needed ..

Josefin was busy doing concerts with her group Ainbusk singers before she could work on a project with Björn and Benny.
I didn´t know it before but Benny actually made the music to 2 of their most popular songs, this time a woman wrote the lyrics ,Josefin´s sister Marie.

This one reminds me of little Susie, darkness was very dark...until one day
I met Lassie
[video=youtube_share;tcKFA9dl2hw]http://youtu.be/tcKFA9dl2hw[/video]

It was a day and I was four years old ,
I believed more in evil than good things .
I was four years old and there was terrible types in my room ,
black wallpaper cold trumpets blood pancakes and planets
and air buzzed kind, the darkness was very dark
and lonely and scared I was .
Does no one like me?
nobody likes me .
Then she came like a light from the darkness
she licked my cheek and said " with me you are safe and warm ,
I 'll warm your heart, I like you "
and her eyes sparkled love.

I met Lassie , I met Lassie and I saw that there was goodness ,
star of hope shone brightly around her furry tail.
I met Lassie , I met Lassie , she whispered to me his Vov ,
We went paw in the hand and my heart felt blessed .

If you are small and weak (the angels cry ) ,
and is beaten with blows ( when souls die )
no one understands but the heart is screaming , why?
if you are small and weak ( Oh , boy sobs )
every night every day ( including silent cases) .
of all evil you will be blue inside outside , why am I here ?

But horrors may turn
and dandelions light their buds to grow up at dawn.
When ghosts scares me she will scare them away
then she lumbers to us , me and you, with all her love .

I met Lassie , I met Lassie , darling , you 're like a rose
you kiss my sad tears with your gentle nose
I met Lassie , I met Lassie , she makes me so warm and happy
together we go paw in hand in life's walk

Love me for who I am

The first time ABBA performed Dancing Queen was when there was concert for Swedens king and future queen before they married.
There was another concert for Swedens queen when she became 50.
ABBA didn´t make comeback but Frida sang it together with the Real Group.
The only instruments here are their voices..

Here is a part of an early version of my love, my life.
The demo was called monsieur, monsieur.
Agnetha is in an interview in a radioprogramme and have to think for a while what song it is.
She said they didn´t like it and it was only "careless singing"
The wanted to change arrangemang,it was too high they had to lower it and they changed lyrics.

She said she prefered to work in the studio before performing the songs.
All of them in the studio could hear the song didn´t become what they wanted.
She said it was easy for them to get along and often thought the same thing about the music.

[video=youtube_share;wRohWkH0TII]http://youtu.be/wRohWkH0TII[/video]

the final result

Björn said in a interview 1982 they didn´t have to compromise but Frida said sometimes as a singer you had to compromise,Björn and Benny could have ideas about the songs they wrote.

They said the most stupid question they got was "do you like music?"
Frida said she became full of laughter and had to leave but Benny said no ,you became angry.
Well, it was both Frida said.
