Notes:
"One Of Us", released in early December 1981, was the first single from ABBA's last album "The Visitors" (released a week earlier) and their last major hit.

The B-side was almost without exception the non-album "Should I Laugh Or Cry". In the UK and South Africa, a spoken "count-in" intro unintentionally got included on the record. This rarity has since been made available on CD in 2005 and 2012. In El Salvador, "When All Is Said And Done" was used instead and in Peru, its Spanish version "No Hay A Quien Culpar".

A photo very similar to the one on the album cover was used for the single cover, in Norway and South Africa it actually was the album photo. In the UK a different sleeve design appeared, and a picture disc was also released there.

"One Of Us" wasn't released as single in the US before 1983, when it was used to promote "The Singles" compilation. Instead, "When All Is Said And Done" was released as the first single there. In Brazil the single got a belated 1982 release - and came with the cover art and B-side ("The Visitors") of the next single "Head Over Heels / The Visitors", which apparently wasn't released in Brazil.
