BIOGRAPHY:
Year 69 marks the meeting of the couples of ABBA. Agnetha meets Bjorn and Benny meets Anni-Frid the two couples become engaged and then marry, for finally divorcing. The team author type-setter Benny & Bjorn met obviously a few years earlier, in 1966. Although Agnetha & Anni-Frid contributed to the voices of the choral society on the album of the men ' Lycka', the common contribution of the two couples seemed very distant, since it y have the disastrous test of a representation in a restaurant of Gothenburg in 1970 under the name of ' Festfolket'.

It is into 72 that the group was officially formed under the name of ' Björn and Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid' and carried out their first 45t. ' People Need Love', a n°17 with the hit Swedish parade. With the invitation in 73 to propose a song for the Swedish selection of Eurovision, Benny, Björn & Stig Anderson, the manager of the group, came with the song ' Ring' Boxing ring. It finished in the 3rd place. But the four returned the following year with the song "Waterloo", that which was going to gain the first price of the eurovision, in Brighton, April 6, 1974. Thus the name of the group became ABBA, which decides easily in all the languages. The contest of the eurovision gave to ABBA all that it was necessary to collect the international attention and to be followed success. At all events, after "Waterloo" was n°1 in England (n°6 in the USA a first for a song of the eurovision) their success strongly decreased. The song "Boxing ring boxing ring" reached only the 32ème place, "So Long" did not appear in the hit parades, ' I C, I C, I C, I C, I Do' was only 38ème. The United Kingdom is an important market for the group and they have to have many despairs. Then they carried out "S.O.S, which reached the n°6, it was followed by 3 n°1 to the hit of the 45t. - ' Mamma Mia, ' Fernando' and ' Queen' Dance hall. After two albums reaching signal 30, the third album called ' Greatest Hits' became n°1. in England. In 1976 with the promotional turn D ' Arrival' was on the way.

' Knowing Me, Knowing You' & ' The Name Of The Game ' become n°1 with the hit English parade. The album "Arrival was n°1 in England, while in the USA ' Queen' Dance hall became the first and only the n°1 in the USA on" Billboard Chart ". Year 77 became another year has success for the group. The 45t. ' Take A Chance One Me' and the 33t. ' The Album' were n°1 in the U.K., ' ABBA - The movie' pulverized the movie screens in the USA, one declared it to me May 78, month ABBA. The group carried out appearance with the TV and ensured an excellent promotion. May 78 also saw the inauguration of a new studio of recording. The realization of the 45t. ' Summer Night City' showed that ABBA could adapt to the music disco music. The following year in 1979, showed that the group was very occupied with the realization of two albums ' Want Vous', ' Greatest Hits vol. 2 ', reaching the n°1 and containing 5 45t. ' Chiquitita' (which was given to the UNICEF in 79 international year of the Child), ' Does Your Mother Know?' - with the voice of Björn -, the double 45t ' Angeleyes'/' Want-Vous', ' Gimme Gimme Gimme' & ' I Cuts A Dream' which missed the n°1 with Christmas.

The following year in 1983, showed one year very calm. A 33t compilation left ' Thank You For The Music', a collection of music of love which was published for Christmas, with the 45t ' Thank You For The Music'.
