Most Underrated ABBA Songs


The Top Ten

1 Angel Eyes Angel Eyes

There are so many other amazing songs on here (So Long, I've Been Waiting For You, Summer Night City) and obviously the best and most underrated ABBA song is The Piper, but when it comes to these songs, Angel Eyes is a clear winner for me. It's the song that literally gave me little happy moments when I was struggling with my mental health. How could I not choose it? (And if you're wondering about The Piper being my favourite, I'm certain it would have done the same as Angel Eyes if I had discovered it earlier.)

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 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

Beautiful song, beautiful agnetha!

3 When I Kissed the Teacher When I Kissed the Teacher

A really nice song!

4 The Name of the Game

Got this song on repeat all day lol

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

Yep, this is indeed amazing! - ivylee

So sweet!

5 So Long
6 Summer Night City

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

7 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

8 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

9 Tiger

Very underrated

10 Rock Me

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

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Kisses of Fire

I really like the lyrics on this one, does explain lot and more. - ivylee

13 Another Town, Another Train

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

My favourite song from their album Ring Ring! - ivylee

Very relaxing!

14 If It Wasn't for The Nights

It is so good but forgotten!

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

15 Eagle

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

16 King Kong Song

This one is fun!

17 Under Attack
18 People Need Love
19 Honey, Honey

One of the best abba songs

Love it!
