Overview

Everybody loves ABBA—as proven by the blockbuster success of Mamma Mia! the movie. Thank You for the Music traces the story of the Swedish supergroup—which has sold an estimated 350,000,000 records, tapes, and CDs—through their songs. Starting with their world-conquering 1970s disco hits, it travels through to the more reflective 1980s, with “The Winner Takes It All” marking a watershed in their output. Every tune from the musical and movie is covered, and glorious photographs form a sublime gallery of Abba’s most dazzling costumes. This is a unique in-depth study of the places, events, and characters that inspired an enduring catalog of classic songs.
