Even if true, I am proud to say I have never, and never will, own anything by Abba.

Here are links to Wikipedia's two articles on the subject. I don't hold Wikipedia up as an arbiter of truth, but I think the entries highlight the difficulty in trying to determine the answer.

Damnable hell, now I have "Dancing Queen" stuck in my head, and can't get it out. a tailor, why do you post these things?! Is it one of those questions that comes as you're trying to fall asleep?

"See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen..."

And now I'm remembering the "Abba Turd" scene from Priscilla. aaargh...

Biggest-selling Album Ever
The best-selling album of all time is Thriller by Michael Jackson (USA), with global sales of over 51 million copies to date since 1982. The success of the album also helped Jackson win a record eight Grammy Awards in 1984.

I was taken to see the Abba musical, Momma Mia.

It was amazingly terrible.

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though I never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando.

I saw a list a year or so ago that put the Beatles at #1, Elvis at #2 and ABBA at #3 in terms of worldwide sales. Third is still a feat for a group that only had one #1 in the US (Dancing Queen).
