Song of the day: ABBA- Summer Night City

abba-summer-night-city

Yes, a seventies hit today! And one with a strange story. The song was intended to be the lead single of the album Voulez-Vous. However, it never appeared on the album! In recording and mixing the song, ABBA was not happy with the sound of it. They could not find what was wrong, and after some months, they decided to still release it. That’s why it was not included on the album. Whether they liked it or not, the public had no problems finding the single and buying it. In most countries it entered the Top 5 after some weeks, and it has even charted as number one in some countries! I think it’s a great song, maybe one of their best. Enjoy

  1. I saw an interview where the two B’s (!) said that they just couldn’t put their finger on what was missing from the record. I like it-sometimes the public knows best 🙂
