Day 211: The name of the game, Abba

Another song by a band that is often considered by many as a band for the teeny boppers of the the 70s. Yet Abba wrote some very interesting songs with very interesting lyrics and here is another song from their collection which is possibly exploring in music the increasing tensions that were developing between Frida, Bennie, Bjorn and Agnetha as their marriages began to strain perhaps under the pressure of fame? The song is strange because in it the couples are having so much fun and look very much in love. I wonder if they ever now look back at this video and wish they could return to those days when they were so happy together?
