"Fernando" became one of ABBA's best-selling singles and topping the charts in many countries include insane 14 weeks at # 1 result in Australia. Surprisingly in their native Sweden "Fernando" was peaked only at # 2 behind the Swedish alpine ski team anthem.
Brotherhood's "Angelo" was criticized by many for its similarity to ABBA's "Fernando", but in my retro chart "Angelo" became a big hit and spent 4 weeks at # 1, "Fernando" became the first UK ABBA single, which wasn't in my top 20.

"You'd better go For there is no place for you here"
"Chiquitita" proved to be one of ABBA's biggest hits. It was featured in a 1979 UNICEF charity event. "Chiquitita" hit #1 in Belgium, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland and was a Top 5 hit in ABBA's native Sweden, United Kingdom (peaking at #2 in both countries where Blondie's "Heart of Glass" was occupying the top spot), Australia, Germany and Norway, making it the most successful single from "Voulez-Vous" album in terms of global charts and one of the most famous charity songs ever.

"He's never bothered by his conscience Deals with the Devil, 'cause he wants to be Man In The Middle"
# 93. Eagle
"Is it true I'm an eagle? Is it true I can spread my wings?"
"Eagle" didn't have a major success on the charts. One reason was that the song was already available on "The Album"; another was the limited release in the most European countries (Austria # 17, Belgium # 1, France # 16, West Germany # 6, Netherlands # 4, Switzerland # 7), but not in United Kingdom.

"I wasn't jealous before we met Now every woman I see is a potential threat"
"Lay All Your Love on Me", is a song recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA in 1980 for their Super Trouper album. It was released only as a 12-inch single in 1981 in limited territories, rather than as a standard 7-inch record. At the time, it was the highest selling 12-inch record in UK chart history, where it peaked at number 7.
