ABBA • The Winner Takes It All
Perhaps Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad were the first signs that soon, the Swedes would be taking over Pop music. For Afnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid were the supergroup ABBA, ruling the charts in the 1970s and early 1980s. And could there be a more perfect song for the Olympic athletes than their 1980 hit, "The Winner Takes It All". The brooding ballad might speak of love gone bad, but it certainly could apply to the Olympic Games.
"The Winner Takes It All" can be found on Abba Gold: Greatest Hits, available on iTunes and Amazon.
