1. Chiquitita

ABBA released this song, which means "little one" in Spanish from their Voulez-Vous album back in 1979. It wasn't going to be a single, but once they finished recording the song, decided to release as such. The song was also a huge hit Internationally and one half of royalties were donated to UNICEF by the band. They recorded the song in both English and Spanish.

2. Dancing Queen

Of all of the great songs released by ABBA, this one in 1976 was their only #1 hit in the United States. Of course it was a huge hit in many other countries around the world. The song was written by the male members of the group as a way of joining the disco trend which was strong in the mid to late 1970s. I'd say they captured the vibe with this great tune and has become one of the more well known ABBA covers.

3. Fernando

This song was not on any previous ABBA album but was written specifically for a Greatest Hits album in 1976 as an "extra" track. They changed the name to Fernando after the name of a bartender at a local bar in Stockholm where they would gather for a drink. A Swedish, Spanish and English version was released and with the English lyrics being a much different story than the other versions.

4. Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie

This was another "extra" track for their Greatest Hits 2 album that was released in the fall of 1979 and was a huge #1 in many European countries. It replaced a song called Rubber Ball Man which was never released by ABBA because Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie had more of a disco flavour for the time and was also released in Spanish.

5. I Have A Dream

The two male members of ABBA wrote this song in 1976 but the band never released it as a single until Dec 1979 when it hit the top of the charts in many countries.

7. Mamma Mia

This song, which means "my mother" in Italian but in reality equates to the English expression "my my", was released as a single in 1975. A music video for this song certainly helped promote their image. This is another ABBA covers that's fun to play on the acoustic.

8. Slipping Through My Fingers

In 1981 this song, from "The Visitors" album was released as a single, but only in Japan and was the only song, as there was no recording on the B-side, just the picture of the group standing on a Coca-Cola logo. Now that's strange.

11. When I Kissed The Teacher

This song was released in 1976 but failed to break the top 10 anywhere, which is surprising to say the least considering almost everything released by ABBA was a #1 somewhere on the planet .. but not this one.
