And for those ones which don't know who was Abba: ABBA was a Swedish pop music group. The band consisted of Benny Andersson from Sweden, Björn Ulvaeus from Sweden, Anni-Frid Lyngstad from Norway and Agnetha Fältskog from Sweden too. They were topped into the charts in all over the world from the seventies to the eighties. The name "ABBA" it is an acronym formed from the first letters of each one of the group members (Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid).
the ABBA band gained extraordinary international popularity employing simple lyrics and catchy song hooks,in multiple harmonies. Their popularity grew up and they made tours in Europe, Australia, and North America, getting so many fans that were called "ABBAholics". With both marriages of the band members (Benny with Frida, and Björn with Agnetha) failed, the relationship changes were badly reflected in their music, and the lyrics they produced becomes more thoughtful with different compositions.
