Songfacts®:

  • Near the end of ABBA's career, they released this heartbreaking song with a Eurostomp disco sound. The singer (Agnetha Fältskog) has lost what's dear to her and doesn't know where to turn ("All I've learned has overturned, what can I do?"). Despite the forlorn lyrics, the song became a popular dance hit. It was released as a 12" single in Europe, where it caught on and has endured as one of ABBA's classics. It is featured in the Mamma Mia! musical and appears on many compilation albums.
  • Information Society recorded this for their debut album in 1988, with their version hitting #83 in the US. >>
