ABBA was a symbol of generations
I think that there wasn't a girl in the 1970s who did not want to be like two wonderful women from the band ABBA. These beautiful women , singers and big artists of the group ABBA, Agnetha and Anni Frid with their chrystal voices, are a synomyn for femininity and strong personalities for whole generation. All members of the group ABBA are excellent singers, artists and musicians. Their performance was always at high artistical level.
Also, ABBA was videly noted for the colourful and trend -setting costumes its members wore and young people were copying its style.
This Swedish group, whose name is an acronym of the first letters of the band members, is the second most successful band of all time , after Beatles.
ABBA, composed of two married couples, was an inspiration for generations.
This Swedish pop music group formed in Stockholm in 1972. The band name was comprised of the first letters of the member's name: Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid (better known as Frida). On 6 April 1974, the group finally won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton with song " Waterloo". It was a glam-rock inspired song, produced by Michael B. Tretow. It reached number one in UK and number six in the USA.
In January 1976 Mamma Mia made number one in the UK.
ABBA disbanded at the end of 1983 to take a break and pursue their individual projects.
In February 2005, for the first time since their disbandment in 1983, all four former ABBA members appeared in public together, at the gala of Mamma Mia in Stockholm.
ABBA became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of pop music from 1972 to 1982.
Their best-known hits are: Gimme' Gimme', Chiquitita; Money, Money,Money; Dancing Queen; Voulez-vous etc.

ABBA is forever
In October 2005, during the 50th anniversary of the Eurovison Song Contest held in Copenhagen " Waterloo" was voted BEST Eurovision song in the history of the contest.

It was a big surprise about one of the most popular music group all time, about ABBA. The member of this group Bjorn Ulvaeus confirmed ABBA reunion. He had an interview for Smooth Radio.on September 19th 2019. He told Smooth Radio:"It was a global reaction so we put out that just make people aware there were these two new songs and we thought we'd be able to release them much sooner."

Abba is wonderful. Although I am more of a rock fan, I find myself tapping my foot and singing along to Dancing Queen every time it plays. Great hub!
