Songfacts®:

  • This downtempo piano-based orchestrated number was the A-side of "Hej, Gamle Man!", the first song to feature the four voices of ABBA, although this early Andersson/Ulvaeus composition features only a male vocal.

    "Lycka" was also the title track of the 1970 album recorded under the somewhat cumbersome name of Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson.
  • "Lycka" is Swedish for "Happiness." >>
