Doesn't this assume that Abba songs are good in the first place?

Super Trouper!

Believe it or not it was a song about a make of spotlight (Followspot) used in Theatres and Concert Venues.

Haven't heard all of these songs in the poll, but I can't choose between "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" and "Lay All Your Love On Me". How can I choose? Those two songs are the best

Ahh, that'd be my second choice too, great film Usage of Abba in films seems to pay off, except the film that was nothing but Abba songs, curiously.

They're all pretty good songs... i couldn't make a fair choice without giving them all another listen, but i'm not sure i could bare any more than 10mins!

I think Move On is their most under-rated song.

One of Us. Reminds me a lot of The Winner Takes It All, both pretty starkly honest with the subject of break-ups. Especially when the break-up involves the writer of the song and the woman singing it!

So many great tunes to choose from, but I have a soft spot for Knowing Me, Knowing You (A-HA!) and Lay All Your Love on Me!

Love Abba however my favourite, Eagle, is not on the list. Also agree with Progress that Move On is a good one and Slipping Through My Fingers is good Ali but it's a bit of a tearjerker!
