ABBA's massive world tour of 1978, combined with promotion for their Lasse Hallstrom-directed film ABBA: The Movie and Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson's work on their never-completed musical The Girl with the Golden Hair, meant that it wasn't until the summer of 1979 that the group followed up 1978's massive hit ABBA: The Album. In pop music terms, 16 months can be a lifetime, and during that 16 months, the post-Saturday Night Fever disco explosion had already peaked and was starting to fade. As a result, the title track of Voulez-Vous (recorded at Miami's Criteria Studios, the Bee Gees' home base during this time) already sounded a little dated in 1979, and it remains one of ABBA's few singles that lacks the timeless quality of their best work. That said, it's actually a thumping great disco track, the best dancefloor filler ABBA ever devised, and a compendium of subtle ear-catching hooks: the insistent synthesizer riff between the verses, that nagging "ahh-AH" backing vocal in the choruses, and the bilingual lyrics are all equally ear-catching. Add in the anthemic quality of the melody and the result is one of the great pop/disco singles of the '70s. Unfortunately, the "disco sucks" backlash had already started by the summer of 1979, and "Voulez-Vous" didn't even hit the U.S. Top 40. It wasn't until Erasure made the song the centerpiece of their brilliant ABBA-esque EP that the song's immense charms became widely recognized.
