** 'One Man One Woman': An uplifting and joyous song with a cheerful chorus - a story of a woman who lives in a heavily abusive relationship and cannot escape from it, forgiving her man every time in the name of love 'worth the pain and the suffering'.

* [[GratuitousForeignLanguage GratuitousSwedish]]: "Should I Laugh Or Cry" retains its original Swedish count-in of 'en, två, en två, tre' (one, two, one, two, three). Originally this was only present on the UK and South African 'One Of Us' singles due to them being sent the wrong tapes (being edited off elsewhere), but Bjorn And Benny liked the effect and decided to ThrowItIn when the remasters were released.

The compilation album 'ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits', first released in 1992 has just (as of August 2008) reached the number one slot in the UK album charts for the fifth time - a sign, if any were needed, of ABBA's enduring popularity.

By the end of the decade, the group had matured artistically moving away from the light-natured songs of the early years and towards heavier themes. Internal affairs had turned DarkerAndEdgier as well: Agnetha and Björn divorced in 1980, and Benny and Frida would follow suit a year later. 'The Winner Takes It All', a bittersweet ballad about the end of a romance (generally assumed to be based on Agnetha and Björn's divorce) is considered by many to be the artistic peak of the group.

In 1970, the group traveled around Sweden and Denmark as a cabaret revue called "Festfolket" (Party People). Audiences preferred their singing to their comedy skits. They first shot to international attention in 1974 winning the EurovisionSongContest with 'Waterloo'. Rapid success followed over the next few years in Europe and Australia and (to a lesser degree) the United States with a run of huge hits like 'Dancing Queen', 'Fernando' and 'Mamma Mia'. The fact that the band consisted of two {{Creator Couple}}s didn't hurt. A European and Australian tour in 1977 led to a [[TheMovie feature film]] and massive sell-out concerts.

* EurovisionSongContest: Its most memorable winners. Often the only winner anyone remembers, with [[Music/CelineDion Celine Dion]] being that only other known winner.

Added DiffLines:

** "You Owe Me One" has the narrator losing their mind frantically due to depression over a failing relationship, a fact captured by its upbeat as opposed to sad music for the lyrics. They hint that they'll have a breakdown if they don't go on holiday to the Bahamas 'get a break from their petty little dramas'.
