Top Ten Best ABBA Songs

The Top Ten Best ABBA Songs

1 The Winner Takes It All

D I v o r c e
A masterpiece of creativity
The Winner really does take it all

Beautiful lyrics with a good meaning. Also this song is beautiful

This is such an emotional and beautiful song. I love it so, so much and it will always mean so much to me.

Great song with amazing lyrics hypnotic voice and some heart touching music... One of the best songs in the history of music... I love you abba... Thanks for giving us such a Jewl

2 Dancing Queen

Super catchy and uplifting. Best one to dance to with friends.

Did you know, that this song has been Frida Lyngstad's favourite song until from that moment when she heard it? And do you know what? Me too !! :DD

The Queen song Of ABBA

I personally adore every single ABBA song, but I think if I had to pick just one I would choose Dancing Queen. I just feel like this song is a classic and it puts everyone in such a great mood. It is such a cheerful and upbeat song!

3 S.O.S.

Not just ABBA's best song, but one of the best songs ever. The perfect pop song with hooks to die for.

Super catchy and an amazing song about love, but is unfortunately ruined by Pierce Brosnan.

This song is my favorite out of ABBA because the harmony is perfect and in the iconic Broadway show and movie Mamma Mia in my opinion in Mamma Mia it was more catchy but ABBA had better singers.

First ABBA song, fell in love with them from then on

4 Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia is one of their best songs! I think it should be higher on the list.

Though the low rankings of Waterloo (#7) and Take a Chance On Me (#4) also bother me, Mamma Mia should at least be in the top three, if not #1.

This song is amazing! Suprised this song isn't in the top 3

I like The Winner Takes It All, but this should be so much higher on the list.

5 Take a Chance on Me

My favorite Abba song, the harmonizing in my opinion is the best out of all their hits.

I love almost every abba song

Great song should be number 1

The best abba song, and my other favorite is Angel Eyes.

6 Knowing Me, Knowing You

Super frickin catchy. Best song I’ve ever heard about breakups. My favorite when I first watched the movies and probably still my favorite.

This song is a classic. Spectacular, powerful, and breathtaking, with a heart-stopping pause, just before the chorus is belted out against pulsating background guitars. The vocals of all 4 members, blended to perfection, while Frida's deep mezzo declarations resign us to the fact it's all over.

Knowing me knowing you is not just the best Abba song, IT IS THE BEST SONG OF ALL TIME. You cannot hate this song because it's just a Wonderful master piece that will never die. Saddly, it is not the most popular of their song but it is way better than The winner takes it all and Dancing Queen. Frida's voice is totally awesome and beautiful and the chorus is magnificient. It's the best breakup song ever created. Benny and Bjorn are just genius and the 2 girls are the best singers of all time. Abba Forever

ABBA has a catalog full of contenders, but this one - like SOS and The Name of the Game - captures the essence of what the group did best: They used a power chorus of rich harmonies drenched with melancholy to counter the lonely and somber solo verse.

7 Waterloo

Catchiest song by far. Probably one of the catchiest love songs I’ve ever heard. I love how it’s history and live together.

This not in the top ten? It's a crime!

Best song by abba form kenny

All songs in their newist gold disc are incredible.

8 Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)

This is the best one. Don't listen to anyone else

14? This better get higher sometime! This song is awesome, just makes you feel good every time you hear it

Love this song. I know all the ABBA songs on the first page but this has to be one of the best

The Best One Ever! I love This Song! Makes me want to dance!

9 Does Your Mother Know

I remember hearing this upbeat song as a kid and love it just as much now! My favorite ABBA song!

THIS SONG SHOULD BE FIRST. It is the only ABBA song that demonstrates talent and that is because bjorn is the best band member. He is the only one that knows how to song a good song. I am very dissapointed that this song is eleventh:'(

Another great and energetic song! It's great to dance to!

It just sounds... Amazing

10 Fernando

Yup. I am loving how this song is so close to the top. It is such a classic and such a nice easy listen. This is what makes everyone love ABBA.

His is just amazing and I can't get it out of my head I can't believe this is a top 6 I am in shock I really really really think it deserves to be at least a top5 or 4 please take my opinion into consideration I am begging!

My head is full of good memories and thoughts every time I'm listening to this song. Doubtless, a gold hit!

It is really the best ABBA song. There is really beautiful Frida's vocal. The sound of music and lyrics are so much wonderful. This song is work of art!

The Contenders

11 Voulez-Vous

An awesome song! It has a catchy tune, and my brother who hates ABBA LOVES this song! That's pretty good for him because he's not a fan of ABBA.

Cathy and upbeat tune! Should be higher on the list!

Good energy in this song

Still one of the best that moves me even till now

12 Super Trouper

The problem with songs like super trouper is that they could easily be best songs for other groups, but it can't compete with ABBA's masterpieces.

This song just is amazing, quite possibly the most touching song ever! SUPER TROOPER BEAMS ARE GONNA BLIND ME!

I love this song! It's the one by ABBA I play the most and never get tired of.

I remember really liking it when I was younger. I can still hear some parts of it in my head.

13 The Name of the Game

I've heard this song a hundred times, but it's 2016 and today it came thru on Spotify, and I was in just the right place to hear it as though it were the first time... it hooked me in and knocked me out. I played it several times in a row, trying to get all that's going on in here. I don't know technical music, but the word "counterpoint" has got to describe some of this. It's like it's structured several layers thick, all playing off each other vertically, but also totally different melodies colliding sideways... it's a funhouse ride! Reminds me of the harmonic depth of the Beach Boys, coupled with the Beatles' tendency to abruptly shift songs 90 degrees but make it sound absolutely logical and just plain fascinating. I'm sure that "Dancing Queen" and "Knowing Me, Knowing You" will remain my definitive ABBA songs, but "The Name of the Game" is going into my playlist of "Sonic Masterworks".

This song is obviously one of their best songs. The name of the game is so original and the voice of Anni-Frid and Agnetha are perfectly mixing together. The solo part of Agnetha is also fantastic. definitely one of their best's along with Knowing me knowing you, Chiquitita and Fernando.

This is so much better than 14. Technically complex and beautiful arrangements led by killer bass riff pinched by fugees and frida and agnetha just stunning vocals and harmonies. Abba best pop band ever but serious craft, skill and musicianship and awesome vocal talent makes songs like this such enduring masterpieces

On paper such a complicated piece with its unconventional arrangement and different bridge sections, the two girls interchanging and with their own solo parts. But it's all put together brilliantly.

14 Chiquitita

"The music is so melodious. And so hopeful. I can almost see myself running across a meadow, with my arms stretched out, singing Chiquitita! "

I think this is the original classic. wonderful song. Remind me about my father because he always song to me

This one should be in the top 5. The incredible technical blend of the background vocals in terms of rhythm and melody is in my opinion unmatched compared to today's music.

Oh.. God this song can make you cry laughing so badly you can't imagine..I personally feel this song cannot be compared to others...!

15 Lay All Your Love on Me

This edges out Super Trouper for my personal favorite. Hard to believe they aren't in the top 10 at least.

Awesome song! I LOVE it!

I really like this song but it's quite underrated from the others. Still, a very good song!

I find it such a good song it's clearly my favorite

16 Money, Money, Money

Money, money must be funny in the rich man's world. What a rhyme I must say, good job ABBA!

The voice is so different and captivating... Surely deserves top 5...

"Money, money must be funny in the rich man's world" what a rhyme I must say, good job ABBA!

I'll never forget this song

17 One of Us

Such a catchy song but also so emotional. Deserves higher on this list.

This song is achingly beautiful. Once again, Agnetha does a wonderful job of playing the broken hearted with her beautiful, plaintive voice.

My favorite song from ABBA, I love the sadness on Agnetha's voice.

This song deserves I'm top 5... One of us is amazing... One of the best song ever...

18 Eagle

ABBA is one of the greatest pop groups that ever was and I love the song " Eagle " but to call this song psychedelic is ridiculous. This is not a song written on LSD or another hallucinogenic drug. It's a beautiful pop song with " normal " lyrics. Fly away doesn't mean to get high and was certainly not intended to listen when you're high on drugs.

Super psychedelic! So beautiful, it makes you feel as if you are actually out there in the wilderness, soaring above the pine trees!

Brilliant song - not so well known but surely their best

The Best Abba song for me.

19 I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do

This song was not that popular but it is the song that make them famous after Waterloo. This song just make you happy

The song is "not that popular" but "make them famous"? How does that work?

Just a fun song with GREAT harmonies.

I love this song!

So happy and cheerful! One of my favourites!

20 Like an Angel Passing Through My Room

This is one of the most beautiful songs that I ever heard.

Most beutiful song ever written by B&B

21 The Visitors

This song is in my top 5 of all of ABBA songs. It is definitely best experienced in a club. It's dark and meant to be danced to. It's a song about paranoia coming true.

The music is pretty scary but good song!

Great song and music love this song so much!

Stunning! It takes you by surprise.

22 Angel Eyes

Partially to be contrarian, but also because this has always been in my top 5 ABBA songs and it pained me to see it so low..

A lovely song it should be a world singles

It's a great song! The lyrics tells you a lot and I love the singing!

Classic abba song, so glad it was in mamma mia 2

23 Thank You for the Music

This is mistake why this is so low down when this song starts you have to join in karaoke style

Why is it so low? This is an original song without romance or something similar

How is this not in the top ten? I love the lyrics and the song seems very special.

How this is not in the top 10!. Wonderful song

24 Under Attack

My all time favourite abba song of all time. chorus is so amazing it is pop perfection!

Best song ever.

Best song ever

25 Summer Night City

This song doesn't get the attention it deserves.

One of my top five ABBA song.

By far the most underrated song, please do listen carefully and vote! There is everything in this piece. There are not less than four themes in the same song, main one doesn't have break which gives impression of a continuous rhythm than can't get out of the head.
Arrangements are perfect, as often with abba, but not overloaded.
Song is erotic and driving.

26 I'm a Marionette


27 One Man, One Woman

Amazing harmonies. Beautiful ending strings section. This also has the best production of any ABBA song. Everything works wonderfully, adding up to one of the most perfect pop songs I've ever heard.

Puh lease.. This should be at the top.. The chords are very amazing.. Who put it at 30? One man, one woman.

28 The Day Before You Came

The last AND best song ABBA recorded in august 1982

One of the most poignant songs that ABBA ever recorded. This song should be on top.

This, and I Let The Music Speak, are true masterpieces

This ABBAS best ever song without a doubt - spectacular

29 As Good as New

This song was used as the opening track on their Voulez-Vous album.
It was released as a single in Mexico where it became ABBA's ninth number-one hit. This is one of Agnetha's most powerful performances.

30 Andante Andante

A masterpiece that is unmatched to this day...why can't modern love songs be as utterly amazing as this one is?


31 Our Last Summer

One of ABBA's best and certainly deserves a higher ranking than 34.


32 I've Been Waiting for You

Should have been the A side. Such a beautifully crafted masterpiece

Definitely in my top 5! It's so so good, I don't know how its only 37.

It’s a crime that this song is so low on the list. I loved it in the movie where it’s like Sophie is taking on her mother’s role as singer and mother.

33 Ring, Ring

This song is really upbeat and cheerful, even though the lyric isn't really happy.

This song is really cheerful and upbeat, even though the lyric isn't that happy.

Nice and cheerful song and deserves a better place in this top list.

I love it! The drums before the chorus. There is so much energy.

34 My Love, My Life

I don't think there is a bad song from ABBA. This song is just beautiful, sweet and angelic. You should look on YouTube when Agnetha looks like a goddess while singing the song!


35 Bang-A-Boomerang
36 I Wonder

Just because I love Angetha's legs.

37 Move On

Such a peaceful melody! So calm and soothes you gently! This is underrated though! It makes you feel you're in nature!

Beautiful melody, wonderful lyrics and perfect voices

Love this song

A beautiful song. It's almost spiritual, like an earlier song called "Att finnas till" sung in Swedish by the four members of ABBA.

38 Arrival

Astonishing instrumental, criminally under-rated.

39 Slipping Through My Fingers

The song we choose for our daughter's first wedding dance -- Daddy Daughter.

Such a sad and emotional song! It's about Bjorn and Agnetha's daughter Linda of how quickly she is growing up. She goes to school and spends little time with her parents. I cry every time! It's just like leaving your own child! I know how much Bjorn and Agnetha missed their daughter!

Very emotional song...and if you look at any child this song becomes perfect.

Such an AMAZING song. So emotional and beautiful

40 Hey, Hey Helen
41 When I Kissed the Teacher

This song is fun, cheerful and silly!

In my opinion I think that is the best song of abba

Added on 25th Aug 2012. No mention of it till now. That sums up the people's chlice these days.

Cannot remember how many times I listenned to this song. For years it would be the 1st song I'd play on new stereo equipment.

42 If It Wasn't for the Nights

Equally the best track on the voulez vous album alongside chiquitita

Never released as a single, but a very catchy song!

It's very catchy and upbeat but is underrated.

43 Hasta Manana

The song is beautiful! Agnetha's voice is just amazing!

Bitter sweet song with Agnetha on lead vocals. Very sing-aa-long and moving.

Great song. Too underrated!

Good tune and favourite

44 That's Me

Abba's most underrated song, by far. And in my opinion one of their best.

I really like this one. Very cheerful and happy!

I love love love it. It's fun to sing along to.

45 So Long

57th? Really?
Do people not know this song?

46 Rock Me

Popular rock tune

47 I Let the Music Speak

Awesome! Sounds like it would fit good in a Tim Burton Batman movie

One Abba's best songs, so dark, so mature, so perfect

Masterpiece, feels in soul

48 The Way Old Friends Do

This is also my favourite ABBA song. I really wish they had made a studio recording of it as well as the live version. This is the song Frida and Agnetha chose to recently sing at the 60th anniversary party in Sweden of Bjorn and Benny's musical collaborations.

I know every ABBA song, but this one is the best by far
For me.
Very simple, very minimal, and therefore all the more powerful. Sheer magic; The ultimate tribute to the universal power of love.


49 On and On and On

Much enjoyed this one in my youth.
