Not only did Abba know how to write absolute stomping disco classics they manage to do so with totally on-point lyrics that half the time are super depressing.   1

Great clip, terrific song. Peerless Ulvaeus and Andersson, we should never underestimate their genius both musically and lyrically.   1

First, this looks like a 1997 Hype Williams video, if Hype Williams had been into smoking angel dust, which is a pretty rad aesthetic, and everyone in it sells the lip synch with impressive verve. Second, it's about as good as ABBA got at meshing perfect pop songcraft with the conventions of disco. But I love it for its stunningly accurate description of #crushingdepression.
