  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn September 17th 1979, ABBA performed in concert at the Seattle Center Arena in Seattle, Washington...
    At the time the quartet's "Angeleyes" was in its first week on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #85; just under three weeks later on October 7th it would peak at #64 {for 1 week} and it stayed on the chart for five weeks...
    The record's A-side, "Voules-Vous", also made the Top 100, it spent three weeks on the chart, peaking at #80...
    Between 1974 and 1982 the quartet had twenty Top 100 records; four made the Top 10 with one reaching #1, "Dancing Queen" for one week on April 3rd, 1977.
  • Dc from Seattle, WaWow, I love this one, a huge influence in the Euro dance scene, as well as in America. I go to Woodinville almost daily.
  • Guy from Woodinville, WaI'm a ridiculoulsy huge ABBA fan, but I always thought this was one of their weaker songs.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandThis was the title track of the album from which it was taken.
