  1. So Long

    "So Long" is a song by Swedish pop group ABBA, released as the first single from their album ABBA. "So Long" was written and composed by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson, with vocals by Agnetha Fältskog & Anni-Frid Lyngstad. Although musically similar to "Waterloo", "So Long" gave ABBA its worst international chart performance. Although it was a hit in Sweden, Austria and West Germany, it failed to reach the top fifty in the UK - their only single to do so, and failed to chart highly in either the US or Australia. The single was backed with "I've Been Waiting for You," another song from the ABBA album.
