19 Songs, 1 Hour 18 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

All extremities of human emotion are found in ABBA’s immaculate songbook, from the sobbing ecstasy of “Dancing Queen”—in which European melodic melancholy is warmed up by giddy disco—to the controlled devastation, glacial harmonies, and stately piano of “The Winner Takes It All.” There are lyrics of blossoming love over jittery marimba (“Mamma Mia”) or blaring sax (“Waterloo”) and some of the greatest songs about dying relationships (“S.O.S.,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You”) that pop music could hope to aspire to.

Very enjoyable music

This group was much maligned over the years, but their music is infectious and a joy to listen to. I'm glad I found it.

Awesome.

Classic collection of ABBA's greatest, but it's worth having a look at their other songs many of which are absolutely amazing but not on Gold. More ABBA Gold is a good place to start. ABBA was the best, and this just skims the surface!
