In 1992 Erasure recorded Abba-esque
, an EP made up of 4 ABBA songs. It became their first UK #1 and kick-started an Abba revival. One of the songs on it was "Take A Chance On Me," which they did Techno style spliced up with a Ragga section. Andy Bell in 1000 UK #1 Hits
recalls: "The ABBA EP was commercial and fun, but a throwaway project for us to do because it was only 4 songs. And because they were written by the same writers it was easy for us to do. The ABBA stuff was originally going to be an album project, but then we were glad we didn't do that, because we were pretty swamped by ABBA anyway."
