Default best Abba song

No poll cos it's "The Name Of The Game"

If you don't like Abba you can honestly go and fuck yourself. Hahahaha just joking but it would probably be best if you leave Talking Time.

Oh shit, I forgot that Hung Up sampled that song. So there you have it. Are you going to tell Madonna she's wrong?

Nothing for me will ever come close to I Have a Dream. I can't listen to it without tearing up and probably crying.

It's no wonder they were able to make Mamma Mia out of ABBA's discography. Their songs seem like they were custom made for musical theatre.

I don't think I can decide this one. With every song I see I think it's awesome, but then the next one is awesome too and I just get nowhere. Too much great stuff from this group.

I guess I have to go with SOS, since this was the first of their songs that stuck with me.

^this. Visitors is definitely one of my favorites of "the not well known" ABBA songs, although the chorus is kind of annoying in that it ends in the same words

Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love's a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Got to be one of the best songs ever written.
