Many people dislike ABBA. A whole lot more love ABBA. A lot more. The Swedish group was an international colossus in the 70s who outsold practically every other group. It is easy to dismiss ABBA as bubblegum pop disco sound but they are better in retrospect. Take a look at ABBA’s concert movie and they were pretty good. Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad could sing and were good looking. From the album “Arrival,” “Money Money Money” was written by the male half Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus and is simply about a woman seeking a sugar daddy.

Abba in their hey day were super as were another popular group of the time BoneyM. I love both their music. Abba's music is still going on and on today and I don't think it will ever fall out of fashion. It may be out of fashion with some younger folk but some of us oldies in Europe it is embedded in our memories. Their music was catchy you could understand the lyrics and in a way at times it was like a ear worm constantly on your mind. They are still reaping millions from the albums, shows and film. I would call that quite a success!

@JohnRoberts Yes we did. Some of our friends used to call our first bus Priscilla. They wanted to do a paint job on it.

I am one who could not stand the sound, but then I hated the BeeGees too.

The thing about Abba is that they never pretended to be anything other than what they were: a good pop group. It wasn't like they were trying to claim to be "rockers" or anything. I have Abba on my iPod and I'm not ashamed of it.
