    Happy to see ABBA with my favourite song. They were far better than many give them credit for.

    I completely agree with that. They were genius for pop music. So catchy, yet so complex and inspired melodies. Almost nobody ever came close to them. People simply think that ABBA made some simple candy pop tunes. Yes, it may sound like that if you don't listen or if you're tone deaf for melody. They made some of the most complex melodies in pop, if not the most complex. Just listen for example 'The Name of the Game'. There is no even standard form 'verse-chorus' or 'verse-bridge-chorus' in melody. There is something that looks almost like 'verse-bridge1-chorus1-bridge2-chorus2'. But those 2 guys are really gifted songwriters. They actualy didn't compose 1 really weak song in almost whole career. And all those backing vocals and instrumental melodies mixed with main melody... simply genius. It's almost like classical music in pop form. To me, they are for sure the best pop band ever.

    Well, yes...and worse than some others gave them credit for...and as good as even others gave them credit for!

    They were a great pop band (not just good)...but is anyone of any significance saying anything different?

    Ok, this is hard for me to understand, but if I got it correctly, I guess that the biggest significance about ABBA has my opinion to me
