A mighty disco giant with dynamic vocals and swirling chorus.
Very Motownesque ! Uplifting yet deceptively foreboding.
If It Wasn't For The Nights 10/10
This disco stomper has the potential of a surefire hit stamped all over with feisty vocals and an infectious chorus. Sadly, not to be.
With beautifully crisp and clear vocals from Agnetha, this Latin-flavoured classic warms the heart. Rather sad yet uplifting.
Kisses Of Fire 10/10
Agnetha's soft lead vocal rapidly transforms into a sweeping chorus. This is an under-rated disco gem.
Dream World 8/10
With the exception of the jingly fairground introduction, this is a delightful ditty which has grown on me . An unforgettable chorus featuring Agnetha and Frida.
Gimme Gimme Gimme ( A Man After Midnight ) 10/10
Exploding with energy, this disco giant has all the key ingredients. Zestful vocals followed by a rousing chorus surrounded within swirling instrumentation.

The Way Old Friends Do 8/10
Truly, a fitting concert finale with a moving acoustic performance from all four.
Head Over Heels 8/10
A tongue-in-cheek vocal from Agnetha adds to the frivolity of this beguiling number. Mischievous tinkling of keyboards from Benny.
When All Is Said And Done 9/10
A wistfully resigned vocal delivery from Frida delivers a magnificent pop powerhouse.
A stand-out epic with a mighty chorus. Politically inspired lyrics from Bjorn are creatively put to use.

A very haunting and desolate slice of theatrical melodrama. An epic swansong !
Just Like That 9/10
A forgotten potential pop masterpiece that was regrettably shelved. ABBA's holy grail !
So there you have it folks, all the songs from ABBA that I love so much and my personal favourites. When I have a little time to spare I will continue with the remainder of the songs that have eluded me. I hope you enjoy reading my comments and that they are not too bad.
