The home of Eurovision lyrics


ABBA was a pop music group formed in Sweden in 1972. The band consisted of Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Agnetha Fältskog. In late 1973, they were invited by Swedish television to contribute a song for the 1974 contest, and from a number of newly written compositions, the foursome chose the upbeat Waterloo. ABBA won the contest for the first time for Sweden that year, and Waterloo went on to become the most popular and recognizable songs in Eurovision history.

After their participation they had great success with numerous follow up singles such as Mamma Mia, Fernando, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Take a Chance on Me, Voulez-Vous, Super Trouper, The Winner Takes All and Lay All Your Love on Me. All of these songs topped the charts worldwide from 1972 to 1983 when they decided to part ways, leaving behind a legacy that named them as one of the most popular bands ever in music history.
