ABBA – Knowing Me, Knowing You

Today’s group was a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972, comprising two married couples. Their name is an acronym of the first letters of the band members’ first names and is sometimes stylized as a. They became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1975 to 1982. They are also known for winning in the Eurovision Song Contest 1974, giving Sweden its first victory in the history of the contest and being the most successful group ever to take part in the competition.

They have sold over 380 million albums and singles worldwide, which makes them one of the best-selling music artists of all time, and the second best selling music group of all time.They were the first group to come from a non-English-speaking country that enjoyed consistent success in the charts of English-speaking countries, including the UK, Ireland, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. The group also enjoyed significant success in Latin American markets, and recorded a collection of their hit songs in Spanish.

During the band’s active years, the couples were very much in love, although both couples later divorced. At the height of their popularity, both relationships were suffering strain which ultimately resulted in the collapse of one marriage in 1979 and the other marriage in 1981. These relationship changes were reflected in the group’s music, with later compositions including more introspective, brooding, dark lyrics.
