    Greatest Hits - ABBA

    ————————————

    ABBA are a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The group's name is an acronym of the first letters of their first names. They became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1974 to 1983.

    ————————————

    Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was originally released in Scandinavia on 17 November 1975 and in other parts of the world in 1976, notably the UK on 10 April, and on 18 September in the US and Canada. The 1976 version of the album contained the brand new single "Fernando".

    ————————————

    1."SOS" 3:22

    2."He Is Your Brother" 3:17

    3."Ring Ring" 3:03

    4."Hasta Mañana" 3:09

    5."Nina, Pretty Ballerina" 2:52

    6."Honey, Honey" 2:55

    7."So Long" 3:06

    1."I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" 3:15

    2."People Need Love" 2:43

    3."Bang-A-Boomerang" 3:02

    4."Another Town, Another Train" 3:10

    5."Mamma Mia" 3:32

    6."Dance" 3:05

    7."Waterloo" 2:42

    8."Fernando" 4:15

    ————————————

    In my opinion, ABBA is the best Swedish pop band of all time and their songs are some of the best from the 70s pop era. This particular album collects their best songs from 1970-75 and is an overall amazing album. The amount of great hits on this album alone makes it worth the cost of buying it, my personal favourites are "Honey, Honey", "Waterloo" and "SOS". The reason I don't give this album a 9 is because of the film Mamma Mia, even though it bought the band more fame than they already had, it also makes it so that when you play a song by ABBA, it is more often than not someone will say "oh, thats the song from Mamma Mia" and won't actually know the band. Other than this, this album's music evokes a sense of nostalgia for many people as a lot of people's parent's listened to it or you may remember it from your childhood. And this is the reason that this album is the best ABBA album to get if you are just getting started, it represents the best of ABBA's early years and is a must for any record collection.
