With the exception of "Dancing Queen", ABBA's best selling single is "Fernando". The disc reached #1 all over the globe in 1976. The female lead was performed by Frida.
She recorded the original version of "Fernando". This 1st interpretation was sung in Swedish for her solo LP 'Frida ensam'. The album was issued in 1975, a year before it was given new English lyrics and re-recorded by Frida with the other 3 members of ABBA.
