Imagine that following ABBA's demise Frida and Agnetha had got together as a duo. It's not a particularly unlikely counterfactual and would have been hugely successful. The Bee Gees would have written mega hits for them and Pete Waterman wouldn't have got a look in. But what would they have called their act?
Declaration of interest: I have got a pretty nifty suggestion myself that I will happily divulge, just as soon as someone takes an interest in this or any other of my quirky but lonely threads
Genius!! I think they'd have needed to make sense of that name with a pretty sassy album. All Chrissie Hynde swearing or maybe even Fascinating Aida-type sharp comedy. I'm only surprised that nobody has thought to write a scandal-filled book about Agnetha and Frida with that title.

Yes, the girls have always somehow managed to simultaneously project hotness and innocence. I could imagine them enjoying using the name while at the same time successfully professing ignorance regarding any double meaning. Maybe we could think up similarly ambiguous titles or themes for that sassy album. As we have discussed before, Honey, Honey was filthy, but one tends to look at their shining faces while delivering it and just about give them the benefit of the doubt.
Just for continuity's sake, I'd have advised them to keep it simple and go with 'AA' - and call their debut album 'One for the Road' which would have neatly reflected the deliberate ambiguity of that name.
