ABBA Ladies Have Discussed Reunion

September 30, 2010

Anni-Frid Lyngstad, better known simply as Frida, has said that she and her former bandmate, Agnetha Faltskog, have discussed the possibility of singing together again.

The female stars of the Swedish supergroup have not performed together since ABBA parted ways in 1983.

“It would be great to do something with Agnetha,” the Daily Express quoted Frida, 65, as saying. “If we did, it would be hard to avoid all the pressure because of Abba. It could never be low-key.”

Frida and Agnetha have talked about a reunion and how they would approach it; “We talk about it.” added Frida.

ABBA is one of the most successful bands of all times, known for their smash hits like “Take a Chance on Me”, “Mamma Mia”, “Dancing Queen”, “The Winner Takes It All”, and “Waterloo”. They gained international popularity employing catchy song hooks, simple lyrics, sound effects (reverb, phasing) and a Wall of Sound achieved by overdubbing the voices of Frida and Agnetha in multiple harmonies.

The band consisted of Frida, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Agnetha Faltskog. During the band’s existence, Agnetha and Bjorn were a married couple, as were Frida and Benny, although both couples later divorced. Male members Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus have ruled out a reunion of ABBA.

ABBA was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March this year. They were represented by the former married couple Frida and Benny who accepted the award from the Bee Gees’ Barry and Robin Gibb.
