Quartet ABBA: the story of ascending

One of the most outstanding Sweden musical groups ABBA brought light in lives of many people of 70s. We made this article for you to know more about these talented guys! Read it!

Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad: if we put these names together we will get the name of one incredible group - ABBA. In fact, the group hasn't been always called this name. Their first songs were released under the name of «Björn & Benny», «Agnetha & Anni-Frid», but it was too inconvenient.

The manager of «Hootenanny Singers», who worked with the team, invented "ABBA" as a joke, as there was a seafood processing company under the same name. To make the abbreviation official, the quartet had to ask the above mentioned company for permission. They agreed to share the name with the condition that the band wouldn't fail. Apparently they didn't.

Here are some songs for you!
