Top Ten Best ABBA Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Winner Takes It All The Winner Takes It All Cover Art

Such a sad and painful song! It's so sweet and angelic! Sadly, it's a song about Bjorn and Agnetha's divorce. I could feel the strong emotion that Agnetha felt and how hard it was for her to sing about her own breakup. Obviously, she is devastated but she even recalled that this was her favourite Abba song because it had amazing lyrics. I totally agree with her! I love this song!

Second song off of the album Super Trouper, about a breakup that had a part in the eventual split of ABBA. This is an excellent song, and definitely one of ABBA's best. The lyrics are meaningful and the emotion is true.

I love this song! It's so sad and very beautiful! Bjorn writing the song and Agnetha singing it is just magic! I wish they didn't separate! They had a beautiful and lovely relationship!

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 Dancing Queen Cover Art

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!

Such a cheerful and upbeat song, and this is definitely one of ABBA's trademark song. Every time I talk to my friends about ABBA, they always remember this song.

To me it's the ABSOLUTE BEST song ever made, no question! I'm thankful to have the chance to know it, voices and melody are just from heaven.

This is real music! It's way better than today's music! This is a true disco song and can't stop singing and dancing!

3 S.O.S. S.O.S. Cover Art

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.

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.

One of my favourites from Abba! Agnetha's voice was beyond incredible and others are great as well!

4 Mamma Mia Mamma Mia Cover Art

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.

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

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

I honestly prefer this over Dancing Queen.

5 Take a Chance on Me Take a Chance on Me Cover Art

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

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

So catchy! A lovely beat and so fun to listen!

I love almost every abba song

6 Knowing Me, Knowing You Knowing Me, Knowing You Cover Art

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

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.

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 Waterloo Cover Art

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

All songs in their newist gold disc are incredible.

Best song by abba form kenny

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

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

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!

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

9 Does Your Mother Know Does Your Mother Know Cover Art

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:'(

It's so energetic n cheerful! Just love this song... First song I heard of abba n love it! Just makes you wanna dance

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

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

10 Fernando Fernando Cover Art

This is an amazing song and I wish it could be a number three, Please make my dream come true I am literally begging and pleading while I am writing this, I think this deserves more than to be a top six. this was in my head for over two weeks and it really should be better on this chart. Please believe me and take this comment into consideration. Thanks and Fernando all the way!

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!

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.

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

The Contenders

11 Voulez-Vous Voulez-Vous Cover Art

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.

I love it. One of the best, most danceable disco songs out there!

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

Still one of the best that moves me even till now

12 Super Trouper Super Trouper Cover Art

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.

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

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

This song is the best abba song

13 The Name of the Game The Name of the Game Cover Art

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 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

This song is the song that made me a lifelong ABBA fan. At 16 years old, on a desolate, snowy, small town night laying in bed listening to the FM radio, I heard this song and was so mesmerized I stayed awake for hours until they played it again. All the voices blend together in the chorus to create one "voice," and the effect is powerful.

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.

14 Chiquitita Chiquitita Cover Art

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.

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

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...!

This is beautiful! It's my parent's favourite ABBA song! This is one amazing piece of music!

15 Lay All Your Love on Me Lay All Your Love on Me Cover Art

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

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

First 10 seconds alone are better than any beatles song ever recorded

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

16 Money, Money, Money Money, Money, Money Cover Art

My brother used to listen to this song almost everyday when I was a kid so I automatically have it carved in my mind. The lyrics and the rhythm, rhyme,… are very energetic, fun and melodious. I truly hope it would be higher on this list!

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

"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...

17 One of Us One of Us Cover Art

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

I remember waking up shortly for three to hear the number One in the austrian top twenty. An amazing song.

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

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

18 Eagle Eagle Cover Art

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!

Really dramatic and psychedelic song with great solos from Bjorn Ulaveus! My favourite from ABBA: The Album.

One of ABBA's best songs. Sophisticated and mature yet accesible. It's a pity it never got wider recognition.

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?

So happy and cheerful! One of my favourites!

I love this song!

Just a fun song with GREAT harmonies.

20 The Visitors The Visitors Cover Art

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.

Great song and music love this song so much!

The music is pretty scary but good song!

Stunning! It takes you by surprise.

21 Angel Eyes Angel Eyes Cover Art

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..

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

A lovely song it should be a world singles

22 Thank You for the Music Thank You for the Music Cover Art

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

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

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

Why is this so underrated! Should be top ten hundred percent

23 I'm a Marionette I'm a Marionette Cover Art

Masterpiece

24 Under Attack Under Attack Cover Art

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 Summer Night City Cover Art

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.
Perfect.

This song doesn't get the attention it deserves.

One of my top five ABBA song.
