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. We’ll be posting what we think are the 50 best ABBA songs in alphabetical order. Enjoy!
ESC Covers picked a Finnish cover of RING RING. The title stays the same. SEIJA SIMOLA sang it. She represented Finland at the Eurovision song contest in the 70’s.
THE 30th ABBA SONG IN OUR LIST IS:
Ring Ring, the title track of ABBA’s 1973 debut album. The single gave the group their big break in several European countries (although the rest of Europe, North America and Australia would be introduced to ABBA the following year). The song was written in Swedish by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, along with their manager Stig Anderson. Translation into English lyrics was helped by Neil Sedaka and his collaborator Phil Cody. The Swedish version reached No. 1 in the Swedish charts. The song came 3rd in Melodifestivalen 1973, the Swedish pre-selection for the Eurovision Song contest.
