Swedish music has successfully and indefinitely engrained itself in today's music scene with the country producing some of pop's most prolific producers and singers, but it likely all would have been much, much different without ABBA. Here are the 15 ABBA songs that have undeniably stood the test of time.
There's not many bands with as healthy a chart pedigree as ABBA, and the Swedish quartet's singles are almost national treasures in their own way. The band's global domination from the mid-seventies to the early eighties, followed by subsequent revivals in decades to come, means ABBA's classic hits are known to millions, across generations.
