#270 YOU OWE ME ONE Abba
The B-side on the single "Under Attack" was "You Owe Me One", written, arranged and produced by ABBA's Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. The song has been added as a bonus track on later pressings of their final studio album, 'The Visitors'. 
"Under Attack" was issued after ABBA released that last album of all-new material. At the time, the members were approaching the group's end. With their relationships over as 2 couples, ABBA were unable to create the same productive atmosphere in the studio. 
Frida Lyngstad performs the lead vocal on "You Owe Me One". Many had not heard the song before it was later added to the CD re-issues, even though it was originally dropped in 1983. It is a fun, upbeat song with many of the trademark ABBA hooks and musical features.

This is a list made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice. I have excluded songs from the last few years in order to get a better idea of a song's lasting impression. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
2 new instalments are added each day (every 12 hours) with 1 of the remaining 300 songs as well as moving down from #1201 to 1500, with 5 of those songs added daily.
