1. ABBA-dabba-dooo!!
This legendary 1976 television special, originally screened in November 1976, was the first to take an in-depth look at the ABBA phenomenon, featuring interviews with the group and its individual members. Eight songs from the Arrival album were performed in the one-hour programme. Dancing Queen is featured in the shape of the familiar promo clip (also available on the DVDs The Definitive Collection and ABBA Gold), but the remaining performances were made especially for this programme. They are: Knowing Me, Knowing You; When I Kissed The Teacher (featuring a different, early mix); Dum Dum Diddle (live); My Love, My Life; Money, Money, Money; Tiger; Why Did It Have To Be Me (live).
