TURN THE WORLD AROUND
"Turn The World Around" did not appear on the original version of Agnetha's 2nd English-language studio album following the dissolution of ABBA. The track was used as the B-side for the 1985 single "One Way Love". When the 'Eyes Of A Woman' LP was re-issued in 2005, the song was included as one of the bonus tracks.
IF THIS IS OUR LAST DANCE
Benny Andersson Band
Featuring lyrics penned by Bjorn Ulvaeus, "If This Is Our Last Dance" was included on Benny Andersson's side project's album 'Story Of A Heart'. Issued in 2009, the album track features Helen Sjoholm on lead vocals.
WE SHOULD BE TOGETHER
"We Should Be Together" was a track contained on the 'Eyes Of A Woman' album. The LP was produced by Eric Stewart from the British group 10CC and issued in 1984.
TO TURN THE STONE
'Something's Going On' was Frida's 3rd solo album and her first to be recorded in English. "To Turn The Stone" was written by Pete Bellotte and Giorgio Moroder who normally had worked closely with Donna Summer. The latter recorded her version of the same song for a 1981 album. Plans for that project were shelved. Her version of the song remained in the vaults until it surfaced on the 'I'm A Rainbow' album issued in 1996.
THE HEAT IS ON
Legendary producer Mike Chapman was at the helm for Agnetha's first English-language solo album. Unleashed in 1983, "The Heat Is On" was lifted off the LP as a single. The song topped the charts in Norway and Sweden.
