THE ABBA TOP 40 - Here's how the songs were ranked :

This video montage ranks the top 40 singles released by ABBA, one of the world's best-selling bands, between 1972 and 1983.

The ranking is not based on personal whim, but on the songs' actual chart positions. The ranking is determined by reverse scoring ABBA's original single releases from the pop and rock charts in 17 countries. (100 points were assigned for a number one chart position, 99 points for number two and so on, with a bonus 20 points awarded for each number one.)

The dates attached to each track identify the year the single peaked in most countries, NOT the year it was produced or the album it appeared on. For example, King Kong Song appeared on the 1974 album "Waterloo", but it charted in Australia and Sweden at the height of the band's popularity, in 1977.

Here is a list of the songs together with their point totals. If any of these rankings surprise you, please message me for the complete list of chart positions.
