Abba – The Artist
ABBA are a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The group’s name is an acronym of the first letters of their first names. They became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1974 to 1982. ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 at The Dome in Brighton, UK, giving Sweden its first triumph in the contest. They are the most successful group to have taken part in the competition. Estimates of ABBA’s total record sales are at least 400 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Thank You For The Music – The Song
‘Thank You For The Music’ is a song by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was originally featured on the group’s fifth studio album The Album (1977), and was released as a single on 6 November 1983, to promote the Epic Records compilation album of the same name (similar compilations were released in other countries). The song “Our Last Summer”, which was originally featured on the group’s seventh studio album Super Trouper (1980), was the B-side. “Thank You for the Music” was intended to form part of a “mini-musical” called The Girl with the Golden Hair (a phrase which is featured in the song) that songwriters Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson included in ABBA’s 1977 tour. It was the opening track in the four-song musical, which also included “I Wonder (Departure)”, “I’m a Marionette” and “Get on the Carousel”. The first three songs from the musical were featured on ABBA: The Album; the latter remains unreleased. “Thank You for the Music” is better known in its own right today.
