THE DEFINITIVE ABBA STORY WITH ALL THE MAJOR MUSIC, COMMENTARY FROM THE BAND, AND NEW INTERVIEWS EXPLORING WHAT MAKES ABBA SO INCREDIBLY GOOD!
ABBA FOREVER: The Winner Takes It All is the multi-Gold Award-winning, definitive up-to-date telling of the Abba story with all four members of the band in interviews and special sequences filmed with them, rare archive, and a feast of Abba songs. It starts with their pre-Abba careers, then the inside story of how they conquered Eurovision (first in Swedish, then in English), and then how they've continued to conquer the world several times over. We see them in performance and even going into the sound studio to discover how the Abba sound was created. We also explore Mamma Mia!, the stage hit, onstage and backstage. With Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, Agnetha Fältskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad. Other guests include Bono (in interview and with U2 playing Dancing Queen onstage with Benny and Björn), Donny Osmond, Barbara Dickson, Neil Sedaka, Abba music engineer and wizard Michael Tretow (in interview and at the mixing board!), producer Pete Waterman, broadcaster Paul Gambaccini and more. Abba and the guests illuminate how the songs came about, how they evolved, and what makes them so incredibly good. Songs include: Mamma Mia!
