Not sure if done before but my list of overlooked songs on albums would be.... From Ring Ring......Love isn’t Easy From Waterloo.......Gonna sing you my love song From Abba..............Hey Hey Helen From Arrival...........,.Arrival From The Album.......Move on From Voulez Vous.....The King has lost his crown From Super Trouper...The Piper From The Visitors......I let the music Speak Most of the tracks on the albums have been singles or featured in Mamma Mia films , Abba The Movie or Mamma Mia stage shows. Of the remaining tracks I feel that these songs are the best that have been overlooked on each album.
The following songs are gems that I feel have been overlooked in one way or another, although some are fairly well-known even to non-ABBA-fans:
From Ring Ring... Disillusion (best song on the album) but Love Isn’t Easy deserved to be a single From Waterloo... Hasta Manana (should have been a worldwide single) but I've always had a soft spot for Suzy-Hang-Around From Abba... I've Been Waiting For You (should have been an A-side) From Arrival... My Love My Life (deserved more attention) and I would have preferred Happy Hawaii instead of WDIHTBM From The Album... One Man One Woman (had single potential) From Voulez Vous... If It Wasn't For The Nights (I'll never forgive them for not releasing this as a single) From Super Trouper... Happy New Year (again, should have been on a single at the time, possibly on a double A-side for Christmas/New Year) From The Visitors... Like An Angel Passing Through My Room (a masterpiece)
Also, I think "The Day Before You Came" was overlooked by the public in its day and ABBA's version of "Just Like That" has been overlooked by B&B
Ring Ring: I Saw it in the Mirror Worthy of being sampled by a hip hop rapper.
Waterloo: Sitting in the Palm Tree Some people say it's a bit of a throwaway song but it has its own charm. fortunately, ABBA's aware of ska, and decided to incorporate these elements in it. it's a testimony to one of their music productions
ABBA: I've Been Waiting for You Ditto, as gamleman said in the last post.
Arrival: Why Did it Have to Be Me Not as known in the USA as an ABBA song itself but a well known repertoire due to the European and Australian tours until Mamma Mia 2... I think that's when ABBA settled for their 50s rock mode neatly while maintaining a bit of a mojo unlike So Long which was quite underwhelming and poorly mixed [why the brass sections on higher frequencies???]
The Album: I Wonder As a standalone song, it seems rather autobiographical if you account for Frida's rising of her solo career prior to ABBA that Björn probably had her in his mind while writing it. Authenticity is timeless.
Voulez-Vous: Lovers (Live a Little Longer) No comment.
Super Trouper: Me and I Every song is a hit it feels like a compilation album that's actually good, but I felt Me and I deserved a bit more appreciation.
The Visitors: Soldiers This is this kind of song that would shut down a few naysayers who believe ABBA are just an innocent pop band.
My choice of hidden gems from each ABBA studio album would be, sorry, I had to include my choice of stand out tracks as well ( just one song per album )
Disillusion ( Ring Ring ) ( Stand out He Is Your Brother ) Gonna Sing You My Lovesong ( Waterloo ) ( Stand out Dance ( While The Music Still Goes On ) I've Been Waiting For You ( ABBA ) ( Stand out SOS ) When I Kissed The Teacher ( Arrival ) ( Stand out Knowing Me Knowing You ) Move On ( The Album ) ( Stand out Eagle ) If It Wasn't For The Nights ( Voulez-Vous ) ( Stand out Gimme Gimme Gimme ( A Man After Midnight ) Happy New Year ( Super Trouper ) ( Stand out The Winner Takes It All ) Soldiers ( The Visitors ) ( Stand out The Day Before You Came )
Ring Ring: Love isn't easy. Waterloo: Gonna sing you my Love song.( Frida sung this so Beautifully) ABBA: I've been waiting for you, (one of Agnetha's finest songs) Arrival: My love my Life.( Agnetha made this song her own) Abba the Album: One man One Woman ( great song and clip) Voulez Vouz: as good as new ( deserves a video to go with the song) Super trouper: happy New year: the Visitors: Slipping through my Fingers( an emotional song for mums who watch their children growing up)
Ring Ring: Disillusion Waterloo: Gonna sing you my love song ABBA: Hey, hey, Helen Arrival: My love, my life ABBA - The Album: One man, one woman Voulez-Vous: If it wasn't for the nights Super Trouper: Me and I The Visitors: Like an angel passing through my room
