Artiestinformatie

Land   Zweden

Zweedse popgroep uit Stockholm, opgericht in 1972: Anni-Frid “Frida” Lyngstad (geb. 15-11-1945; zang), Agnetha Fältskog (geb. 5-4-1950; zang), Björn Ulvaeus (geb. 24-4-1945; gitaar) en Benny Andersson (geb. 16-12-1945; toetsen). Ze zijn allemaal in Zweden geboren, behalve Frida, zij ziet het levenslicht in Noorwegen.



De naam ABBA is een acroniem van de voornamen van de leden. Benny is dan lid van The Hep Stars (1964-'69) en Björn van The Hootenanny Singers. Grote doorbraak komt in 1974 met het winnen van het Eurovisie Songferstival met Waterloo. Björn gehuwd met Agnetha (1971-'79) en Benny getrouwd met Frida (1978-'81). De groep wordt in 1982 ontbonden.



In datzelfde jaar concentreren Björn en Benny zich samen met musicalcomponist Tim Rice op de productie van Chess. Het door Elaine Paige en Barbara Dickson gezongen I Know Him So Well en het door Murray Head uitgevoerde One Night In Bangkok levert twee grote hits op. De musical Mamma Mia!, gebaseerd op de hits van ABBA, is op 6 april 1999 in het Prince Edward-theater in de Londense wijk West End in première gegaan.



Songtekst

I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
Look at me now, will I ever learn?
I don't know how but I suddenly lose control
There's a fire within my soul
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, now I really know,
My my, I could never let you go.

I've been angry and sad about the things that you do
I can't count all the times that I've told you we're through
And when you go, when you slam the door
I think you know that you won't be away too long
You know that I'm not that strong.
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, even if I say
Bye bye, leave me now or never
Mamma mia, it's a game we play
Bye bye doesn't mean forever

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go
Mamma mia, now I really know
My my, I could never let you go
