Song #113: "Waterloo"--Abba (1974)

The worldwide phenomenon that was Abba began 43 years ago with today's song, one they sang to win a big music contest in Europe, bursting out of their native Sweden to reach around the world.

It is the fourth of six contributions by the quartet on our Top 500, so two more songs to come. We've enjoyed "Chiquitita", "Knowing Me, Knowing You" and "Voulez-Vous" so far, now "Waterloo". Down the road, we'll discover the final two, neither of which became the title of a Broadway musical. :)

Would any of you be willing to wear any of the outfits used in this video? In public?  :)
