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

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
