Originally recorded in 1977, Thank You for the Music was revived in 1983 as a single by the Swedish pop icons ABBA; it was their 26th single to chart in the United Kingdom (and their last single release before their retirement) and became the title track of this compilation album. Thank You for the Music collects 14 of ABBA's most popular love songs, reflecting the distinctive blend of pop songcraft and polished studio technique that made them one of the most popular musical acts of their generation. The disc includes "Fernando," "Happy New Year," "The Way Old Friends Do," "Our Last Summer," "I Have a Dream," and many more.
