Most Underrated ABBA Songs


The Top Ten

1 Angel Eyes

A great starting, one of the best song beginnings I've ever heard! Like it so much! The best song on the voulez-vous, in my opinion.

I love it! Definitely one of my favourites! I just discovered it and it's amazing! - ivylee

2 My Love, My Life

Agnetha looks and sounds angelic on this song which has classical music overtones. I urge voters to view the videos of this song on YouTube, it's amazing. - ekos

She truly looks like an angel from heaven when singing on YouTube. It's like she's in the mist, singing so beautifully! - ivylee

Beautiful song, beautiful agnetha!

3 The Name of the Game

I think this song is absolutely amazing just like any other ABBA song!

Yep, this is indeed amazing! - ivylee

So sweet!

In my opinion the bet anyway.
But why is it listet here as underrated?
It really had a moderate chart success!

4 Lovelight

I love how the lyrics change from dreary and sad to happy and cheerful, after finding love. Agentha and Frida's voices are just amazing! - ivylee

5 Happy Hawaii

One of my all time favorites. The opening piano sets the melancholy tone even though the song seems upbeat and cheerful. It isn't. It's a wonderfully perfect example of the dichotomy that is ABBA's trademark: sadness hidden in buoyant pop.

I really like this one. The lyrics and music really do remind you of Hawaii, it's very relaxing. - ivylee

6 Summer Night City

I love this song! Definitely deserves more attention! - ivylee

7 When I Kissed the Teacher

A really nice song!

8 Rock Me

Nice song. This was a top 5 hit in Australia. It's nice to live somewhere where ABBA is so respected.

9 I've Been Waiting for You

A true masterpiece! With such eloquent lyrics, beautiful voices and the incredible harmonies I believe that this song is just overall amazing and is quite underrated and many more individuals should listen to it.

10 Another Town, Another Train

My favourite song from their album Ring Ring! - ivylee

Very relaxing!

It's not my favorite, but It's allright

The Contenders

11 If It Wasn't for The Nights

This exhilarating, disco-tinged and fully orchestrated shuffle could have been a classic single from Voulez Vous, and it only adds to it's mystique that it wasn't. This is surely ABBA's greatest ever album-only track. Apart from Happy New Year. And Slipping Through My Fingers.

Upbeat but with accurate relatable lyrics. Never fails to make me smile

12 King Kong Song

This one is fun!

13 When All is Said and Done

This song of it was promoted like dancing queen and other songs it could have been there biggest hit in the USA and Canada

One of the best ABBA songs, used to be my favourite of theirs

Epic! Immortal!

This song has grown on me over the years from something I considered OK in 1986 to utter genius and beautiful in 2017
