A 50th anniversary celebration edition of ABBA’s Waterloo will be released in April. Yes it was that long ago: the Eurovision Song Contest final held in Brighton UK, which saw ABBA launch their career, winning with the song Waterloo, was on April 6, 1975 – 50 years ago.

ABBA have reached the UK Number One spot a total of nine times between 1974 and 1980 and today, the songs they created –written and produced by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and sung by Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid “Frida” Lyngstad – are regarded as an important part of the international music canon. In the 21st Century, ABBA are more popular than ever.
