This early ABBA single was catchy enough to become a Top 30 hit in the United States (and score higher rankings elsewhere in the world) but lacks the melodic sophistication that made songs like "S.O.S." and "Dancing Queen" so memorable. With "Honey Honey," Ulvaeus and Andersson avoided their usual unconventional melodic twists and classical influences to create a tune with a sing-song, naggingly catchy quality reminiscent of bubblegum pop. As a result, it sounds like typical early-'70s Eurovision fodder. It's also weighed down by silly "amorous" lyrics that are at odds with the song's sugary accompaniment. Despite these problems, there are a few elements of experimentation in "Honey Honey": it contains a lovely ballad-styled bridge that is more memorable than the rest of the song and it is unique in that it has no chorus (however, it does use the title as frequently repeated, chorus-like hook in its lyrics). However, these clever elements can't overcome the overall uninspired feel of the song and this makes it one of ABBA's least memorable hits.
