Let me be the first to introduce myself to the forum
My name is Roxanne and I am from Australia - I am about to turn 46 !
I have been an ABBA fan since first seeing them on television here in 1975 and I have been in love with them ever since.
My family and I saw ABBA Live at the first Sydney concert in March 1977.
I am an avid collector and have a pretty good collection of memorabilia these days.
Some people know of me because of my collection - some know of me due to being in an ABBA documentary - others know me from online forums and groups.
I look forward to meeting new members here - and continuing friendships already established.
Cheers from Australia !
p.s as the Admin for this forum. I would like to mention that I created this forum to try to fill the gap that will be left when abba4ever closes down permanently in early October. Hopefully, others will find what they are looking for here
Hi, I'm Neil, 48 years old and live in Scotland. Been a fan since the 70's but haven't been on a forum since Abbamail. Thought it was time to join one again after lurking on Abba4ever forum for a couple of months.

Hello there everyone
My name is Adam I am 24 and I live in the United Kingdom, I became an ABBA fan in 2003 at the age of 13, their music actually saved me from the bullying I was going through at time and I could only see one way out that was until I found a very dusty copy of ABBA Gold which I then played and from that moment on I fell in love with them, two weeks later during a science lesson my teacher took out a copy of Thank You For The Music box set and played disc 4, it was on that very day I discovered my favourite ABBA song 'Dream World' and I also discovered 'You Owe Me One' on the same day as well so I decided there and then that I had to collect every possible ABBA album on CD to which I have achieved and I still do it now.
'Ring Ring' is my favourite album as it includes one of my favourite ABBA songs 'Nina Pretty Ballerina', the Deluxe Edition series has been my favourite collection of albums and I have all 8 so far and it will be complete when the Deluxe Edition of Gracias Por La Musica is released. I have just recently completed my collection of ABBA albums on Vinyl and now I am going after Singles on Vinyl, my next goal is to collect all their albums on cassette.
Most of you may know me from Facebook, Twitter or ABBA4ever, I am honoured to be friends with so many people who have the same interest as me one of my goals is to travel to Sweden to visit the ABBA Museum. I love all of ABBA's music, I mostly like their music from 1981-1982 but in my opinion their best album is Voulez Vous.
So there you have it a brief introduction about me below are my top 10 favourite ABBA songs (the top 3 never change but the rest can change positions).
1. Dream World
2. Slipping Through My Fingers
3. Mamma Mia
4. I Am The City
5. Nina Pretty Ballerina
6. Hasta Manana
8. The King Has Lost His Crown
9. One Man, One Woman
Serena Williams is my favourite female tennis player as you can probably tell from my avatar and Rafael Nadal is my favourite male tennis player, I also have a dog called Holly who is just adorable.

I was a member of ABBA4ever for a while and I posted under my initials, TK. I decided to opt for something a bit more imaginative this time. Hometime is the name under which I make music (my album is in the final stages of recording and should be finished in the next couple of months).
I've been an ABBA fan in the truest sense since "Arrival" and I particularly love the later, darker material (I even wrote a blog piece about my love for "The Visitors"). I have followed the solo careers and my favourites are Frida's albums and Chess.
I'm sure I'll end up revealing more as time passes. But, for now, this is just a quick "howdy do."
Hello everybody! I'm from Denmark and a fan of ABBA since yesterday. Never knew nothing about their music except the GOLD collection. I just got the great box set with all the albums and have really enjoyed listening to them for the first time (and the second, and third and so on). Now, I'm looking forward to the live album.
I hope to get a few pointers from old fans as to what to buy next. I'm sorry my English is not very good, but I'm pretty sure it's better than your Danish!

I've added a poll for the nominations of Song Of the Week to the ABBAchat Forum and will use my maths to work out a winner with the existing poll . Go to :http://abbachat.com/thread/62/song-week-14- to check it out.
Hello everybody! My real name is Justyna, I'm 18 and I live in Poland. Well, what can I say about myself? I have loved ABBA since I was a little girl, their music was always around me. In fact, it's impossible to dislike ABBA, isn't it? Anyway, when it comes to myself, my favourite member is Frida. I love her with all my heart, she's one of my biggest idols ever. But of course I love the rest of ABBA too, without any doubts! I'm also one of two admins of the Facebook page called "ABBA's Crazy World" If you have any questions - feel free to ask!
