Imagine if ABBA released a second album of Spanish song which would consist Felicidad, Andante Andante, No Hay A Quien Culpar and Se Me Esta Escapando. If ABBA recorded more Spanish songs, what could they include in Gracias Por La Musica 2?

I know that Waterloo, The Winner Takes It All and Eagle were written but not recorded and Ring Ring wasn't released at the time. Those could be included in that album.
Thinking of Spanish-flavoured songs, Cassandra could be included. SOS, Money, Money Money, Take A Chance On Me, As Good As New, Voulez-Vous, Super Trouper and One Of Us fared well in Spanish-Territories charts (Spain, Argentina and Mexico) if I'm not mistaken. So they could be included too.
Waterloo was conseidered to be recorded in Spanish in 1974 but that never happened. For the Gracias-sessions, Spanish lyrics for Eagle, Angeleyes and Does Your Mother Know were submitted but never recorded. Seems like the whole project was meant to be done with minimal investment so when they had enough tracks for one album they didn't bother to record any more.
If I remember it right, Waterloo was meant to be recorded in Spanish during ABBA's promotional visit to Spain in 1974 but the filming of the TV special Señoras y Señores took much longer than expected and ABBA simply didn't have time to go into to the studio to record it.
