Added DiffLines:

** "You Owe Me One" has incredibly silly, upbeat music, and yet features some of the darkest lyrics ever in the band's music, indicating a sign of being hopelessly doomed in a relationship. For instance, the first verse is: "Now there's a shadow falling over our faces, doubt forever in our hearts, And in a while we'll start to pick up the traces, we won't find the missing parts". Later on, they say 'Something unwanted has entered our existence".

* OncePerEpisode: The band's first two albums often featured Bjorn on lead vocal, but from their third onwards, he established Agnetha and/or Frida as lead vocalists, and generally only sang on one track per album. He doesn't sing lead on ''Super Trouper'' at all.
** ''ABBA'' has "Man In The Middle" and "Rock Me"
** ''Arrival'' has "Why Did It Have To Be Me"
** ''The Album'' has him speaking the intro to "Move On" and duetting on "Hole In Your Soul".
** ''Voulez Vous'' has "Does Your Mother Know"
** ''The Visitors'' has "Two For The Price Of One".

** "The Winner Takes it All": The lyric, "The gods may throw a dice," should be "The gods may throw the dice." Reason: "Dice" is plural. "Die" is singular. (It could also be "The gods may throw a die." However, that doesn't rhyme with the next line, "Their hearts as cold as ice.")

** In "Love Ain't Easy (But It Sure Is Hard Enough)" there are a number of examples of this, including the awkwardly phrased line 'If I would have to choose I wouldn't let you go", which would have been rendered as 'If I had the choice I wouldn't let you go' if Bjorn's English had been better at the time.

** In "Lovers (Live a Little Longer)", Frida pronounces the word "longevity" with a hard "g". It's supposed to be pronounced with a soft "g" (a "j" sound).

** In "The Day Before You Came", Agnetha sings both ''doubt'' and later ''undoubtedly'' with a clearly pronounced ''b''. In ''doubt'' and related words, the ''b'' is mute.

to:

** "People Need Love" has the line "People need love to make a good living". 'A Living' in English tends to mean a well-paid job. He may have intended to say that people need love to have a good life.

** In "The Day Before You Came", Agnetha sings both ''doubt'' and later ''undoubtedly'' with a clearly pronounced ''b''. In ''doubt'' and related words, the ''b'' is mute. It also has the line 'There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see", which would end with "that I haven't seen" if spoken by a native speaker. Thirdly, "It's funny, but I had no sense of living without aim" is actually meant to say that she didn't realise how boring her life was at the time, but comes across as saying that her lover has made her feel she has no reason to live.
** "Just Like That" features the phrase 'pre-destinated course' when it should be 'pre-destined' or 'pre-determined'. It's probable the line would have changed had the song been officially released.
