ABBA is forever

Updated on December 15, 2015

ABBA was a symbol of generations

I think that there wasn't a girl in the 1970s who did not want to be like two wonderful women from the band ABBA. These beautiful women , singers and big artists of the group ABBA, Agnetha and Anni Frid with their chrystal voices, are a synomyn for femininity and strong personalities for whole generation. All members of the group ABBA are excellent singers, artists and musicians. Their performance was always at high artistical level.

Also, ABBA was videly noted for the colourful and trend -setting costumes its members wore and young people were copying its style.

This Swedish group, whose name is an acronym of the first letters of the band members, is the second most successful band of all time , after Beatles.

ABBA, composed of two married couples, was an inspiration for generations.

About ABBA

This Swedish pop music group formed in Stockholm in 1972. The band name was comprised of the first letters of the member's name: Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid (better known as Frida). On 6 April 1974, the group finally won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton with song " Waterloo". It was a glam-rock inspired song, produced by Michael B. Tretow. It reached number one in UK and number six in the USA.

In January 1976 Mamma Mia made number one in the UK.

ABBA disbanded at the end of 1983 to take a break and pursue their individual projects.

In February 2005, for the first time since their disbandment in 1983, all four former ABBA members appeared in public together, at the gala of Mamma Mia in Stockholm.

ABBA became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of pop music from 1972 to 1982.

Their best-known hits are: Gimme' Gimme', Chiquitita; Money, Money,Money; Dancing Queen; Voulez-vous etc.

Mamma Mia! The Movie
Mamma Mia! The Movie

If you can watch one film several times, then this film is a big creation. I watched this film many times.This is a great whole of different ABBA songs that makes a great sense together with amazing acting of film stars, especially with Meryl Streep who is a heart and a soul of this magic film. Watching this film and at the same time listening to Abba SONGS returns life optimism.

 

Great MERYL STREEP

This famous actress recorded the vocals for film Mamma Mia!'s the Winner Takes it All in just one take. Beny Andersson , former ABBA member and co-composer of the songs calls Streep "a miracle"

Do you know that the winner takes it all? - The WINNER TAKES IT ALL

This is a fantastic ABBA's song with amazing music, lyrics and interpretation.

Do you know that the Winner Takes it all?

Enjoy the hits of ABBA! - ABBA's great hits

Abba Gold - Greatest Hits
Abba Gold - Greatest Hits

Don't miss these great hits of ABBA! "Waterloo," "SOS," "Mamma Mia" and, later, "Fernando" were Top 10 hits in the UK and several other countries, though only the first of these was a Top 10 hit in the US. Other arguable hits in multiple territories included "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" (a Top 10 hit in several countries, a number one in Australia, and a Top 20 hit in the US, though barely cracking the Top 40 in the UK), "Honey Honey" (a Top 20 hit in several countries and a Top 30 hit in the US), "Hasta Mañana" (a Top 10 hit in South Africa and New Zealand and a Top 20 hit in Australia), and "So Long" (a Top 20 hit in Germany and a Top 10 hit in Sweden). Ironically, in Australia, where several of the tracks had reached Number One, the release of Greatest Hits was beaten to the market by the local compilation The Best Of ABBA, precluding a release there for years. Nevertheless, the official greatest hits package was an enormous success. Even Rolling Stone, often one of ABBA's harshest critics in the US, declared in the years shortly after its release, "Anyone who could listen to this record five times and not wind up humming half the songs is an android."

 

ABBA is forever

In October 2005, during the 50th anniversary of the Eurovison Song Contest held in Copenhagen " Waterloo" was voted BEST Eurovision song in the history of the contest.

ABBA had sold over 370 million albums and singles worldwide and still sell millions of records a year, which makes them one of the best-selling music artist of all time and the second best selling music group of ALL TIME.

BECAUSE OF ITS HIGH-QUALITY , ABBA IS FOREVER...

      Abba is wonderful. Although I am more of a rock fan, I find myself tapping my foot and singing along to Dancing Queen every time it plays. Great hub!
