Dancing Queen
About this song


"Dancing Queen" is a pop song recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA, released in 1976. It was written in honor of Queen Silvia and performed at the wedding reception of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia at the Royal Palace. It was the follow-up single to the hit "Fernando" and is commonly regarded as one of the most successful singles of the 1970s. "Dancing Queen" was written by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Stig Anderson and is considered by many to be ABBA's signature song as it reached the number 1 position on popular music charts in 13 countries. Recorded in 1975, it was released on the group's album Arrival the following year and as a single with "That's Me" as the B-side.[1]

In May 2004, the British performing rights group Phonographic Performance Limited celebrated its 70th anniversary by listing the 70 songs that have played most in Great Britain on the radio, in clubs and on jukeboxes. On this list "Dancing Queen" featured at number 6.[2]

"Dancing Queen" features the shared lead vocal performance by Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. Its opening keyboard glissando is one of the most instantly recognizable intros in pop music.
