My Favorite Songs From All 8 ABBA Albums

  Do you remember my post about my favorite Agnetha songs from her After-ABBA Solo Career?  Well, I've decided to do one of my favorite songs from all 8 of ABBA's albums.  :)

  Anyway, first of, we have ABBA's album, "Ring Ring".  My favorite song from that album would be People Need Love.  I like it because all four of the ABBA members sing the song - It was the only ABBA song where they all sang together.  The unreleased song Here Comes Rubie Jamie was sang by all for ABBA members once again.  Since Bjorn and Benny violently hated the song, they didn't release it.  I like the way the song sounds - even though I've only heard the snippet on "ABBA Undeleted". 

  My next favorite ABBA song is on the "Waterloo" album.  The song is none other than Suzy-Hang-Around.  I like it because it's the only song with Benny on lead-vocals.  He sounds pretty good!  I wonder why he doesn't like to sing...  The only other times you can here Benny sing would be in Here Comes Rubie Jamie, People Need Love (along with Bjorn), and on the "Olivia Newton-John Show".  (Is that even what its called?)

  On the "ABBA" album, I'm not really sure which song is my favorite.  I like So Long and Tropical Loveland a lot...  I like Tropical Loveland a little more than So Long because it is a bit calmer and Frida sounds nice on it.  I like So Long just because I'm able to memorize all the words. :P

  My next favorite song from the "Arrival" album is Knowing Me, Knowing You.  I like it because it was the first ABBA song I ever heard.  If I didn't listen to that song, I wouldn't be doing anything ABBA-related!  Thank you for the music, ABBA!  :D

  On ABBA's 5th album, "ABBA The Album", my favorite song would me Take A Chance On Me.  I don't really know why it is my favorite, but it is. :P  I like the album a lot because I have it on record!  :D  Yay!  Another song I like on the album is Thank You For The Music from the mini-musical, "The Girl With The Golden Hair". 

  My next favorite is If It Wasn't For The Nights from the "Voulez-Vous" album.  I like the song because ABBA sang it on their first visit to Japan in 1978.  1978 is my favorite ABBA year because they were all married!  That reminds me, when is Frida and Benny's anniversary?!?  I forgot.... 

  My next favorite song from the "Super Trouper" album is The Way Old Friends Do.  I like the song because... well... It just makes me think of Bjorn and Agnetha's divorce.  The song makes me think that Bjorn and Agnetha still remained good friends.  By the way, something is really wrong with my comics!  If Linda and Peter are both old enough to go to school, it must be 1984.  In 1984, ABBA had already disbanded and Bjorn and Agnetha were divorced.  Why are they still together as a group and as a family?!?

  On "The Visitors", my favorite song is Head Over Heels.  I like it because I like the Promo-clip ABBA filmed for it.  It's just funny - even though Frida would look a lot better if she had longer hair.  I feel really bad for Bjorn in the video because Frida makes him carry all the stuff she bought at the store!  :D

Now that you know all my favorite songs, here is the Promo-Clip for Head Over Heels.  :D
