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

Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won't feel blue
Like I always do
'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you

I was sick and tired of everything
When I called you last night from Glasgow
All I do is eat and sleep and sing
Wishing every show was the last show
(Wishing every show was the last show)
So imagine I was glad to hear you're coming
(Glad to hear you're coming)
Suddenly I feel all right
(And suddenly it's gonna be)
And it's gonna be so different
When I'm on the stage tonight

Tonight the
Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Smiling, having fun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Feeling like a number one
Tonight the
Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won't feel blue
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Like I always do
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you

Facing twenty thousand of your fans
How can anyone be so lonely
Part of a success that never ends
Still I'm thinking about you only
(Still I'm thinking about you only)
There are moments when I think I'm going crazy
(Think I'm going crazy)
But it's gonna be alright
(You'll soon be changing everything)
Everything will be so different
When I'm on the stage tonight

Tonight the
Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Smiling, having fun
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Feeling like a number one
Tonight the
Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won't feel blue
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Like I always do
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you

So I'll be there when you arrive
The sight of you will prove to me I'm still alive
And when you take me in your arms
And hold me tight
I know it's gonna mean so much tonight

Tonight the
Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Smiling, having fun
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Feeling like a number one
Tonight the
Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won't feel blue
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Like I always do
(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you
