ABBA has been in the music business for 50 years. To celebrate that happy event, INFE Ireland and INFE South Africa are hosting the ABBA TOP 50 from Monday September 20 to Tuesday November 9. We’ll be posting what we think are the 50 best ABBA songs in alphabetical order. Enjoy!
ESC Covers also select a cover for each ABBA song and for Chiquitita we have decided on a Spanish version by boy band MENUDO (had had Ricky Martin as one of their members).
THE 6th ABBA SONG IN OUR LIST IS:
Chiquitita, a song released in January 1979, is the first single from ABBA’s Voulez-Vous album. The song was a huge hit for ABBA in Europe, US, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.
Originally, the track If It Wasn’t for the Nights was going to be the album’s lead single, but after Chiquitita was completed those plans were abandoned.
