    40 years of Dancing Queen.




    40 years ago this week ABBA's "Dancing Queen" topped the UK Singles chart (the first of 6 weeks total).

    The single, released on August 16th 1976 (same day Madonna turned 18 and was no longer 17... Coincidence?) went to become of the greatest pop songs of all time and also one of the best selling singles selling over 10 million singles at the time (maybe over aprox. 15 million now since digital downloads and streaming makes music on demand and easily accessible).

    The song topped the charts in over 20 countries including Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Portugal, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Netherlands, West Germany, Mexico, Norway, South Africa, Soviet Union, Sweden and USA (their only US #1).

    Now go out, dance to beat of the tambourine, be 17, watch that scene and dig the Dancing Queen.

    I don't really like this... When I decide to get some Anna in my life it's not this song... I'd rather have Super Trouper or Gimme Gimme Gimme...
    It's just overplayed and imo also overrated

    Somehow I can't listen to this anymore
    I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

    I like all their songs.

    But I do think this one is one of their best.

    10 Million, (in the 1970's), is too many for 'Dancing Queen'. Even ABBA themselves gave it
    no more than 6 Million Sales, to the end of that Decade.

    Wikipedia does not include it in its List of the World's Best Selling Singles. This is because,
    an ABBA Book only gave it 3 Million Sales to the end of 1976, and that is all Wikipedia give
    it. It was actually still in many Charts at the end of 1976, and it had yet to sell well over
    1,500,000 in the USA + Canada, where it went to No.1 in 1977...

    Wikipedia only counts 2 ABBA Singles as being in the World's Best Sellers - 'Waterloo' - 5.5 Million,
    and 'Fernando' - 10 Million. However, 10 Million is too many for 'Fernando'. It too had sold about
    6 Million by the end of the 1970's. However, 'Dancing Queen' went on to sell far more as the Decades
    went by...

    Very unpopular opinion, but I prefer B-side ("That's Me") over "Dancing Queen".
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.
