Perhaps mainly due to English being the only universal language of pop and rock, the vast majority of classic modern popular music has been made by either British or American acts, yet one of the most enduring and successful groups of all time came from Sweden, where English is a foreign language. We're talking about ABBA, of course, who dominated charts for around eight years, achieving Nº1 hit singles all over the world (including 9 in UK), and whose heritage remains very familiar despite the passing of time. "ABBA-esque", the EP by Erasure of ABBA cover versions which topped the UK chart in 1992, and the very popular "copy" groups with acts based on ABBA's music, are just some indication of continuing influence of the quartet who where second only to Volvo as Sweden's biggest export earners for several years, and who remain revered and legendary as one of the most accomplished pop/rock groups ever.

|The Story Of ABBA|
|VHS: MGM/UA Home Video UMV 10778; 1984|
This unique programme traces the history and provides a rare insight into a group that became one of the most successful of all time.
This is one of the most interesting videos about ABBA. All the members are explaining things of their carrier from the very first beginning. They are speaking about themselves in a very touching way. Also very interesting because you can find on it Waterloo (live at the European Song Contest 1974 in Brigthon), Dancing Queen (ABBA playing for the wedding of the King and Queen of Sweden), some images of ABBA singing Chiquitita at the Unicef concert 1977, some images of ABBA singing Money, Money, Money dressed in costumes of the 30's...
The copyright is 1984 for Cable connections. And I think it's surely one of the lastest interview of all ABBA's members together (Björn is bearded! And he speaks about Chess - contact with Tim Rice)...
