I think that Abba belongs more in the 'pop' world than the rock part. what is more they are probably the group who gave the rise to the phrase 'bubblegum pop'. Either way, they are a sheer pleasure to listen to, for the music and the lyrics. My fav is 'Mama mia'

Well I love Abba, I do agree that they are pop, embarassing for me as I dont like pop music, but now we have Britney pop and Brooke Hogan pop!!!!, to me abba is just a retro band with great songs. Some of their lyrics are amazing!!!

God, I love them. I'm sure that new movie will help bring their popularity back.

[COLOR="Navy"]They have made much good music and many good songs. I am really happy that you discuss them here. They were a Swedish group and my favourite song with them was Chiquitita! [/COLOR]

I love ABBA, they had incredibly catchy songs. My favourites are "Our Last Summer" (which is one of the most beautiful pop songs ever, in my opinion), "Super Trouper," "Honey Honey" and "Ring Ring."

They're a bit underrated, as far as I can tell, as not hip and a bit light weight, but I think they made a fantastic string of songs that are a blast to listen to.

I think ABBA are great. They had so many hits and all their songs are really memorable. I still find myself singing their songs even if I haven't listened to them for age!

I see the early threads, and the controversy over ABBA being a Rock band. I would wholeheartedly say that ABBA was more a Pop group, but a phenomenal one at that. Benny and Bjorn are two of the finest Pop music writers ever to release music. I definitely would say that there are plenty of ABBA fans out there, including Steven Wilson, one of the masters of Neo Prog. Some people may just not be open about their love for Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Alfrida. So people, come out of the closet! Wear your ABBA pride on your sleeves!!
