I chose 1981 music as my theme this year. My newest novel The Summer of Princess Diana is set in the summer of 1981, and oh! the music! Let’s take a look back at a pivotal time in the music industry.
Released in 1981 on ABBA’s eighth album, The Visitors, “One of Us” would be ABBA’s last #1 single of their career.
ABBA, if you didn’t already know, took the names of the two women in the group (Agnetha and Anni-Frid) and the names of the two men in the group (Björn and Benny) to form the group’s name.
Fans of the musical Mamma Mia will recall this number in Act II, sung by Donna.
