“Dancing Queen” by ABBA, The World's First Europop Disco Hit

|
“Dancing Queen” by ABBA hits the mark so perfectly that Queen Elizabeth once said, "I always try to dance when this song comes on because I am the Queen and I like to dance.” That desire to disco helped ABBA reach the number 1 spot in the following countries: Australia, South Africa, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Brazil, the United Kingdom, the US, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and Rhodesia!

Written by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and their manager Stig Anderson, the trio drew inspiration from George McCrae’s disco banger "Rock Your Baby" and the drums from the album ‘Gumbo’ by Dr. John. The single sold over 3 million copies worldwide and pushed ABBA to new heights of fame.
