They passed me by, all of those great romances You were, I felt, robbing me of my rightful chances My picture clear, everything seemed so easy
Taken from the song One of Us by Swedish pop group ABBA. It was the first single from their final studio album The Arrival (1981). I’ve posted Fernando and The Winner Takes it All. Feel free to share your favourite ABBA song.
I don’t wanna talk About things we’ve gone through Though it’s hurting me Now it’s history. I’ve played all my cards And that’s what you’ve done too Nothing more to say No more ace to play
Taken from the incredibly powerful ballad The Winner Takes it All by Swedish group Abba, from their seventh studio album Super Trouper. Although denied by its songwriter Björn Ulvaeus, the emotive lyrics are widely believed to reflect the break up of his marriage to fellow band member Agnetha Fältskog.
Can you hear the drums Fernando? I remember long ago another starry night like this In the firelight Fernando You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar I could hear the distant drums And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar.
The opening verse of one of Abba’s most loved songs, Fernando. Though not released on any studio album, the single has sold over 10 million physical copies worldwide.
