Has anybody here listened to or heard of Swedish Pop band ABBA?

I've listened to ABBA, in fact I actually have their greatest hits album on one of my shelves that's above my computer. I even have the Swedish version of Honey Honey and the German version of Waterloo on here.

I own Waterloo as an album but I am getting the same box set as you Darkling with the 8 original albums and the extra ninth disc with all of the non album tracks. :)

It's kind of hard not to at least be familiar with Abba, given the popularity of Mamma Mia. Not exactly the ideal exposure, given its reputation as the chick flick/musical to end all chick flicks, but hey, it's something.

Not a huge fan myself, more of a KC & the Sunshine Band kinda guy as far as disco goes. But if you don't like Dancing Queen, I have to wonder if you have a soul.

I'd be very surprised if anybody hadn't heard of ABBA.

Catchy pop songs for sure.

Didn't think the musical was anything too special. It was okay.

I've not seen any of the musical productions but I've heard that the musical is better than the movie adaption.

ABBA, cool. I've listened to an album. I like them, they're not bad for the era that they came from.

Also, it is very sad the amount of young people that don't know ABBA, Meadow.

Abba at one time in the 1970s were worth more as a band than Sweden's entire GDP.

Sweden's biggest export.
