So - let's get this thing on the road.
What we have here is a list of the 100 most defining ABBA songs of all, as voted by 22 of us... but just who are those 22 people? Well, the following...
Tiger, matthew_dixon, martinp, NothingFails, Benny, innocenteyes, Lewis17, Star, musiclover2174, mattsky, ShayLaB, francisplaiy, FreakyFlyBry, tdc2000, chris975, AlexZ, 04wayne, nyla, Grybop, Vindrag, Blondini, potojr
Well, let's see which songs we rank as ABBA's top 100 songs of all...
100. Rubber Ball Man (21 points)
Voted by: NothingFails
If I get to a rarity, I'm going to make that a stock picture if I can't think of anything better, as we have loads of rather random rarities. This was apparently meant to be a single but was shelved in favour of "Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)". This one wouldn't have worked as well in a 00s Madonna sample really!
99. Fernando (21 points)
(from the album "Oro: Grandes Exitos")
Voted by: Tiger
Technically there was nothing in the rules stopping people voting separately for ABBA songs that were released in other parts of the world in other languages, and Maaian decided to cast some votes to the Spanish version of "Fernando". Okay, yeah - it's a good version, and I guess it's fitting for a song like Fernando. Speaking of Spanish and Fernando and ABBA, I wonder whatever happened to UKMIX veteran ABBA fan FernandoMadrid?
98. He Is Your Brother (26 points)
(from the album "Ring Ring")
Voted by: innocenteyes, ShayLaB
At 98, it's a really early ABBA single from back in 1972 - well before the world had come to know of them. It's a pleasant track, but I'm not surprised it's ranked somewhat low.
97. Why Did It Have To Be Me (27 points)
(from the album "Arrival")
Voted by: innocenteyes, matthew_dixon
I own a vinyl copy of "Arrival", and hence you'll see my name against every single track on that album. This however for me is clearly the weakest of them. Yes, it's a decent enough song, but it's not really a big loss. Innocenteyes however has just list two songs that came close to his top 30!
96. Tropical Loveland (29 points)
(from the album "ABBA")
Voted by: innocenteyes
Innocenteyes has managed to cast 65 points for the past three songs combined - alas others didn't share his love at all for this song. It's certainly not your typical ABBA song.
