And by this I mean both the A-side and the B-side, not just the A-side.

For me its The Winner Takes It All/Elaine. Both SUPERB tracks

Also like 'Ring, Ring'.

I like so many of their singles but my personal favourite is either Take A Chance On Me and Lay All Your Love On Me. I don't know the B-sides to those songs though, sorry!

The 'B' Side of 'Take A Chance On Me', was another Track from
'The Album' - 'I'm A Marionette'.

The 'B' Side of 'Lay All Your Love On Me', was another Track off
'Super Trouper' - 'On & On & On'. (In Australia, 'On & On & On',
was the 'A' Side. It reached No.9 there).

A 'Live' version of 'Take A Chance On Me', was the 'B' Side
of 'I Have A Dream', in late 1979.

In the UK & Ireland, (only), 'Angel Eyes' was not the 'B'
Side of 'Voulez Vous'. Both Tracks were a Double 'A' Side,
in those 2 Countries. Elsewhere, 'Angel Eyes' was the 'B'
Side of 'Voulez-Vous'.

In the USA, 'Voulez-Vous' only reached No.80, so Atlantic
then made 'Angel Eyes' the 'A' Side, & that reached No.64.

'Dancing Queen'. I know it's a cliche to say it, but it's pop-perfection.

The Day before you came - easily their best but probably sold the least. Go figure.

Used to be quite into ABBA when I was younger, though they're a bit too 'upbeat' and 'cheesy' for my tastes now. That being said though, 'The Day Before You Came' is still one of my favourite songs ever. Not sure on the b-side though, 'Cassandra' always struck me as an average, nothing new kind of b-side.

SOS is my favourite ABBA track.

Sorry, don't know what the B side was but I was born a couple of years after it was released.

The Winner takes it all and Dancing Queen are up there as two of the finest pop songs ever.

Don't think there is pop voice to this day that could top Agnetha !

Lay All Your Love On Me/On and On and On is a pretty awesome combination, but The Day Before You Came is my favorite song.

I love Abba! but like every great band or artist they wrote some dirges, and that is one of them!

My fav Abba songs are not singles, but if i had to pick one single it would be SOS.

Hard to pick one.

Two more are Chiquitita, and Super Trouper. They've not been mentioned yet, I don't think
