I seriously respect their music and think that their years recording The Visitors and "The Day Before You Came" resulted in some seriously great songs which were perfectly downbeat while still having their on-target aim for classic hooks. I have been a listener ever since the first Greatest Hits album came to my attention as a kid and love the fact that Benny and Bjorn wrote some of the music for Joe Sarno's The Seduction of Igna before Abba turned into the chart-conquering group.

One of the first bands that I fell in love with with The Beatles

I love Andate Andate perhaps one of the few unknown songs.

ABBA is one of the best pop acts ever imo.

I guess their music can be easily enyojed by different generations, which is what pop music is supposed to be about in the first place!

one of my favs... why did Agnetha always seem to get less exposure vs. Frieda? She was the better singer out of the two.



Stellar...."Vibrato" music video

While abba is one of the best, musical was horrible. When i saw the cast, i knew it spelled trouble. I endured but when Pierce Brosnan started to sing the remote went into the telly. Divine intervention. Muriel's wedding much better.

dancing queen is one of the best songs evheard. Freaking awesome. I'd like to know actually who wrote what. bc i think Benny who wrote it is the true genius, NOT Bjorn, unlike the popular belief.

knowing me knowing you
arrival too many to mention

I have all their albums bought as these vinyl reissues back to black, a lot of old vinyl and CD.

Arrival and Voulez-Vous are flawless except Lovers(live a little longer)

boy did this go off topic or what? theyre pop far as i know and they certainly sound like it. Quintessential pop. I cant believe you like lyrics though. feeling like a number one they have so many lines like even sounds morronic.

death metal? i always thought Cyndi Lauper is death. try doom metal.

gold has all the major hits.

cant believe was agnetha who was and was meant to be the biggest star because she was a better singer.
