And then wonder why the shimmering Head Over Heels hit number one in the Netherlands but only reached number 25 in the UK, finally breaking their run of 18 consecutive top ten hits. Blame the break-ups, as this ‘on paper’ joyful ABBA banger was finally realised as as lost and whimsical as ABBA at their grimmest once the band captured it on tape. a b Ryan, Gavin (2011).

Waterloo detonated in the collective European consciousness on the 6 April 1974 at the Eurovision Song Contest, broadcast live from the UK’s Brighton Dome. Keen to scupper the strong pre-show favourite, and with a cavalcade of enthusiastic votes storming in from elsewhere, the home judges stunningly and shamefully gave Waterloo the lowest of all possible scores on the night - aka no points at all (the famous ‘nul points’) - in a petulant attempt to swizz a ‘home’ win for (Australian ...) Oliva Newton-John’s UK entry. Mercifully, their plot failed, and ABBA won with 24 points, trouncing Newton-John into 4th with 14.

Despite its utter brilliance - and it being a Benny favourite - the song only reached number 32 in the UK charts, which must have played a part in further sealing the band’s reluctance to re-join the ABBA circus post Chess (see later). Like the details on the ceiling of Rome’s Sistine Chapel, they’re impossible to see from the ground, but - as Leonardo explained to naysayers who suggested he was wasting his time - ‘God can see them’.

Oh yeah!” All hail ABBA’s debut and the ultimate Eurovision winner. (In 2005, Congratulations: 50 Years of the Eurovision Song Contest - a show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the event - crowned Waterloo the Best Eurovision Song Ever.) It’s therefore ABBA’s most overlooked single release, even being excluded from the following year’s The Singles: The First Ten Years - the only genuine omission. Unforgivable as this is ABBA gold. Don’t shut me down (yet)!

Released in 1993, it was the follow-up to the highly successful Gold: Greatest Hits, released the previous year, and went on to sell 3 million copies. [4] Overview [ edit ] Beyond the amazing voice architecture - enabling digital-style control and storage of parameters in the age of all-analogue – it was the sheer presence of the GX-1 that really impressed.

Despite not being released under the ABBA name, Ring Ring is now considered to be ABBA’s first album, with ‘debut single’ Waterloo actually appearing on the titular second. Even then, the band appear as ‘ABBA (Björn, Benny, Agnetha & Frida)’ on early pressings, alerting their pre-existing fans to their name change and - thanks to Anni-Frid becoming Frida - the A.B.B.A acronym no longer working… That said, in the pursuit of a more modern sound, long-standing ABBA producer/engineer Michael Tretow had taken to gating Benny’s legato synth playing in time with the hi-hat or other percussion to produce a more mechanical, modern edge.

However, the celebratory IIWFTN was deemed too upbeat for the occasion, and the multi-million strong US TV audience were pointed at the moodier, more suitable, written-just-weeks-earlier Chiquitita - Spanish for ‘little one’ - instead. The Bee Gees did likewise, side-stepping all their bangers in favour of Too Much Heaven. Meanwhile Rod Stewart had no such qualms, using the event to ask the world’s needy infants Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? while mercilessly banging it into the US number one slot. The plan had always been to “have two years off” working on the Chess album and subsequent theatre production but increasingly - after indifference to their brilliant (what turned out to be) final singles - the appetite to return from all four members began to wane.Despite its cheek-to-cheek, sexy tango-vibes, TDBYC is a profoundly bleak, 100% electronic ‘sad banger’ before such a thing ever existed, and very much a continuation of the ‘divorce ABBA’ they coined on The Visitors. It’s easy to forget what an electronic band ABBA were, with synths driving Voulez-Vouz, being perfected through Super Trouper and giving way to prominence on The Visitors.
