Dancing Queen ABBA
Song Title: Dancing Queen
Date of release: August 1976
Description: “Dancing Queen” is Musically a Europop variation of American disco music. It includes keyboard lines by Andersson, which highlight the tune’s elegance and artistic intricacy, while Ulvaeus and Andersson interlace lots of great hooks in and out of the mix.
Lyrically, the song is about a visit to the discotheque but talks about the delight of dancing itself.
Regarded by many as one of the most popular pop songs of all time, it is one of ABBA’s most enduring pop songs.
The song’s release cemented ABBA as a global act and represented the start of the group’s lasting legacy of catchy pop tunes. The song was re-released in the UK during 1992 after the group Erasure helped fuel an ABBA resurgence and their Abba-Esque EP reached the top the UK charts. During that year the re-issue of “Dancing Queen” made number 16 on the UK Charts.
Many fans of the song love to sing along when dancing along. However, the song has some of the most misquoted lyrics ever.
Fans often sing ” See that girl, watch her scream, kicking the dancing queen ” when the lyrics are ” See that girl, watch that scene, diggin’ the dancing queen “.
This song has been voted the UK’s favourite dancefloor filler, DJ’s up and down the country easily fill any floor and guarantee to get people up and to dance as soon as the first few bars sound out.
