Who Are Abba?
Abba is a Swedish pop music group. They were formed in 1972 by Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lynstad.
The group came up with their unusual name by taking the first letter of each of their first names.
At its forming, Abba was made up of two married couples. Agnetha and Bjorn were married and Benny and Anni-Frid were married.
The tribulations that often accompany success put a strain on the couples’ relationships and, thus, the entire group.
Two years after they officially formed, Abba were considered the most successful act in pop music history. Their songs topped the charts all around the world from 1974 to the early 1980s.
Abba are believed to have sold between 140 million and 500 million records during their nearly 10 years as a band. They’re among the best-selling musical acts of all time.
Despite their success, Abba split in 1982.
Benny and Bjorn got into writing music for a period of time and saw success in that. Agnetha and Anni-Frid both started careers as solo artists. They saw varying degrees of success in those ventures.
In 1999, several years after the band called it quits, Abba’s music was adapted into a musical called Mamma Mia!
A film by the same name was released nine years later. Abba briefly reunited in 2005 for the 50th-anniversary celebration of when Benny and Bjorn first met.
Members of ABBA:
- Agnetha Fältskog – lead and backing vocals
- Anni-Frid “Frida” Lyngstad – lead and backing vocals
- Björn Ulvaeus – guitars, backing, and lead vocals
- Benny Andersson – keyboards, synthesizers, piano, accordion, guitars, backing and lead vocals
The members of ABBA were married as follows: Agnetha Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus from 1971 to 1980: Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad from 1978 to 1981.

‘Mamma Mia’: Movie Recap
Released in 2008, the first film, Mamma Mia! is set on a fictional Greek island. Sophie Sheridan (played by Amanda Seyfried) is getting ready to marry her boyfriend Sky (Dominic Cooper).
(Fun fact: Seyfried and Cooper became romantically involved in this first film. By the time the sequel came around 10 years later, they had broken up, which may have made acting together again a bit awkward.)
Her mother, Donna (Meryl Streep) is hosting the wedding at her not-in-such-great-condition hotel. Sophie finds her mom’s old diary and discovers that her father might be one of three men: adventurous Bill (Stellan Skarsgård), handsome Sam (Pierce Brosnan), or uptight former rocker Harry (Colin Firth).
She’s too curious not to investigate and sends a wedding invitation to each of the men.
Her mom, Donna, is beyond shocked to find her three former lovers on the Greek island, in her home. Her best friends Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rose (Julie Walters) help her sing away her agitation and sadness.
In the end, the three dads offer to walk Sophie down the aisle; Donna confesses her love to Sam (he’s still in love with her, too); Sophie decides she really is too young to get married, and Donna and Sam get married!
All of this happens – don’t we wish this could be for real life, as well – to the tunes of Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Lay All Your Love On Me, and Super Trouper.
Where ‘Mamma Mia Stopped:
Donna has died and her daughter tries to reopen Donna’s broken-down hotel in this sequel, which came around in 2018, 10 years after its original.
Younger Donna is played in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again by Lily James, with Meryl Streep as older Donna in a couple of spots. Throughout the movie, there are flashbacks of Donna’s past with Sophie’s possible three fathers.
Sophie reveals she and her now-husband Sky are expecting a baby and to top the movie off, her grandmother Ruby, played by Cher (did we expect anything less?), makes a spectacular entrance by helicopter.
One of the best scenes is of the entire cast triumphantly celebrating the hotel’s grand opening with a performance of Super Trouper.
The movie ends with Sophie’s infant daughter’s christening at which, in Sophie’s mind and heart, Donna ‘returns’ with comfort and reassurance for her daughter.
