Swedish group most prominent throughout the Seventies. Consisted of Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad. Became famous after winning the Eurovision Song Contest. Songs are now used as the basis for the hit musical Mamma Mia! which has played to packed houses the world over. Most Yanks
became aware of ABBA when they saw the film 'Muriel's Wedding' which proves that even in the Seventies, septics could not tell good music from the crap all over the radio. But that is another story.
ABBA Fan: 'You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen...'
Non-ABBA-Fan: ABBA SUCK! CHINGY* ROCKS!
ABBA Fan: 'Thank you for the music... the songs I'm singing...'
* You can substitute Chingy's name with that of any American artist on the radio today.
Originated in arabia. This name has many meanings such as; "the lion that is feared by all other lions", "a very powerful lion". Abbas is usually a very muscular and sexually attractive romantic with an amazing sence of humor. He is often very mysteriouse when it comes to his past and would risk anything to protect the one he loves. Often reffered to as "a very rare catch" by most females, abbas is not as attracted to physical traits of a women then most men. Instead he values personality, love, humility, and self respect. The only thing abbas cares about more then himself is the love of his life, and the family he will raise.
"i would die to have Abbas fall inlove with me"
Hebrew word which means "Father" and is directed toward God. It is ,literally, the basic equivilent to the word "daddy".
Abba, Father. YHWH God.
ABBA - A swedish pop group of four members, popular during the '70s and early '80s. The name is derived from their initials; Anni-frid (Frida) Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, and Agnetha Faltskog.
Both Frida and Agnetha have successful solo-careers, while Benny & Bjorn have two musicals based on their work, Mamma Mia and Chess. The 1994 movie Muriel's Wedding has also helped introduce younger generations to ABBA's music.
ABBA had such hits as: The Day Before You Came, SOS, The Winner Takes it All, Knowing Me Knowing You, as well as many less popular but just as enjoyable ones, among which are: Cassandra, Elaine, That's Me and Crazy World.
Multitalented musical legends. They have done disco, rock & roll, and probably a few other genres as well. About 25 years later, the songs "Dancing Queen", "Fernando" and "Mamma-Mia" are still heard just about everywhere, but those aren't near their best songs. You hear one of those 3 disco songs, and don't expect them to do rock & roll, right? Well then you're WRONG, because they made rock songs like "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)", "Money, Money, Money", and "Summer Night City"...listen to one of those. Bang your head and thrash around as necessary. Then listen to their pop and disco stuff and get a different vibe. See? See how legendary they are? Most of their songs are amazing, and enjoyable by just about everyone, whether you're an adult who grew up listening to it, a teenager whose parents listened to it growing up, whatever. The power of ABBA touches all.
I listen to ABBA while I play my Sonic games. I listen to ABBA while I play Super Monkey Ball 2. I prefer to listen to ABBA when I'm kicking somebody's hind parts, whether it's in a video game or not. ABBA is great rollerskating music as well. ABBA enhances all performance.
A pop group from the seventies characterized by their incredibly catchy songs and cliched but loveable lyrics. Consists of four members. The men wrote the songs and produced, while the girls sang the songs. Anna-Frid was the truly talented one, but Aganetha got to sing most of the songs because she had sex appeal.
What's your favorite ABBA song? Mine is probably "The Winner Takes It All" or "If It Wasn't For The Nights".
Swedish pop group consisting of two men and two women (who got married then divrced) who had a string of massively popular songs. Thier appeal was lessened by their terrible dress sense.
Abba's best song was "take a chance on me"
