Cliff from Oakdale, NyIn the mid 70's Abba was the highest profitable entity in Sweden Volvo was second
Doug from Chantilly, VaOne of my favorite ABBA songs... Love the outfits and Bjorn's "ZAP" guitar, although I often wondered if Bjorn had worries about his height since so many times he appears in very tall platform shoes! :-D
Paul from Washington Dc, DcMy friends and I used to do a line dance to this one. It's got a great beat for it. Somebody ought to cover it. I wonder how it would turn out?
Doug from Kansas City, Mowell when you have a great song sung by fine singers who also happen to be total babes then nothing else is needed! when I first saw the girls on Midnight special or something I noticed them right away....
Caitlin from Upper Township, NjWaterloo is just one of those happy, bubbly 70's love songs. Can't resist 'em!
Larry from Coral Springs, FlThis is the song that 1st got me to get into ABBA's Music
Guy from Woodinville, WaThis is one of the most upbeat pop songs ever recorded! Made me and many others a life-long ABBA fan. You go, girls!
John from Fort Worth, TxThis is the first song by ABBA I remember hearing in my conscious memory. I have always loved the sound of the vocal and the sound of the piano. Over my life I learned the lyrics so I could sing along. John Martin, 46, USA
N from Staten Island, NyWhat's great about 'Waterloo' is the Swedish-accented vocals. The group didn't speak English very well and recorded the song phonetically.
Alexander from Ciudad OjedaIt was the English version that won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, not the Swedish one. The most famous copy of that performance is the one commented by Terry Wogan, the man who yearly comments the contest for BBC.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
