Everything old is new again! At least, that's the case with Swedish pop group ABBA. Decades after their 1970s wonder years, they're recording new songs for release late in 2018. Meanwhile, a sequel to "Mamma Mia," the ABBA-inspired and -soundtracked film, is hitting theaters in mid-2018.
The Swedish foursome broke through in the 1970s, winning the Eurovision song contest, and went on to be one of the most successful pop bands of the 1970s. The quartet's name is composed of the first letters of their names: Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid. Sadly, ABBA broke up in 1982, but not before making an indelible mark on the music world. Their music would be resurrected to feature prominently in 1990s films like "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert "and "Muriel's Wedding." (Not to mention the musical "Mamma Mia.")
Maybe you're Boomer or Gen-X fan who remembers ABBA from their 1970s heyday. Or you're a millennial who learned about their music from their '90s renaissance. But do you really remember the lyrics to the hit songs? Sure, everyone can sing along with "Dancing Queen" and "Take a Chance on Me," but ABBA produced far more singable, danceable hits than that.
