ABBA knew that “Dancing Queen” would be a hit and that’s why they hadn’t released it as a single until the album was released. When Benny Andersson first played Anni-Frid Lyngstad the song’s backing track, she started to cry. She said in an interview to The Guardian, “And that was before me and Agnetha had even sung on it! I knew it was absolutely the best song ABBA had ever done.”
