Agnetha Fältskog, ABBA's youngest member, had a #1 record in Sweden when she was only 17 and was noted by the critics and songwriters as a talented composer, most of her songs being in the schlager style.
In late 1973, the composers were invited to contribute a song for the 1974 contest, and from a number of newly written compositions, the foursome chose the upbeat "Waterloo"; the group was now inspired by the growing glam rock scene in England.
There was little interest in the singles, but the album went to #1 in the UK and Belgium, Top 5 in the Netherlands and Germany and Top 20 in many other countries.

  Uk Singles Chart
The precise number is debatable due to the profusion of different competing charts during the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, although the usual list used is that endorsed by the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles and subsequently adopted by The Official UK Charts Company.
Singles that climb the charts and spend a number of weeks at a high position are now rare, and usually denote 'super' singles, which manage to enter the public consciousness and appeal to a wide range of people.
At that time singles usually took several weeks to climb to a high position in the charts, and it was rare and remarkable for a single to go straight in at number 1.

 Advice for Tackling Singles Events - Urbansocial - UK
Some singles events aim to bring together as many single men and single women as they possibly can in one venue, while others aim for a smaller scale event providing a more intimate environment.
It's usual at most singles events for there to be an equal split of single men and single women, however, at some of the bigger events this is not always possible.
There's no point turning up to a singles event with the intention of meeting other singles if you're not prepared to make an effort, make the first move and speak to lots of strangers, some of whom you will strike a chord with and some you may not.

 ABBA information - Search.com
By this time ABBA were widely popular in the UK, most of Western Europe and Australia (who in a way almost "adopted" ABBA as their own) but still had only moderate recognition and airplay in the US, and "Dancing Queen" remains the only No. 1 ABBA ever achieved there.
This album also carried the well-known "Thank You for the Music" that later was released in the UK as a single (1983) and had been a B-side of "Eagle" in territories where that song was released as a single.
Their standalone single "Summer Night City", their last Swedish number one, stopped just short of topping the UK charts but set the stage for ABBA's foray into disco with the album Voulez-Vous, which was released in Spring 1979.

With their sing-a-long melodies and their catchy hooks, it is little wonder that they have proved to be a refreshing alternative for the 25+ers to the bubble-gum pop of the kind that Robbie Williams makes.
The group's debut single, "All I want to do is rock" probably took me aback more than its fellows, but this was no bad thing once I had recovered from the initial shock.
"Singles" is the spectacular result of eight years of dedication to the music industry by the most successful Scottish act to emerge in recent years.

 Four Day Hombre - Mr M : single review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Cleverly, they've not cashed in on this hype, but kept recording and releasing low-key singles, such as this release, which is only available from their website.
Mr M is a bit of a slow-burning epic, with a piano-led verse that inevitably recalls Coldplay before a truly mighty chorus bursts into life.
With the sheer number of bands of this type around though, Four Day Hombre will need to bring something different to the party if they're going to be really successful.

Prior to it's release, the single was on the BBC Radio 1 'A' playlist for four weeks, was number one in the UK club charts and still only managed to enter the UK charts at number 14.
Whilst Jamiroquai singles and albums continue to sell in solid numbers, you get the feeling the band are doing little more than playing to their established audience rather than pushing to make any new impact.
The UK promo 12" release for Love Foolosophy was distributed as a set of two releases identified by a different coloured sleeve and a sticker on the cover stating which release it was - "The Mixes 1/2" etc. This release appeared at the start of 2002.

One minute you're told singles are on the way out and this new-fangled digital age is on its way, and the next Charlotte Hatherley takes poll position in the PlayLouder Singles chart with a song that didn't even hit the shops.
Hatherley put 'Kim Wilde' out to test the water for her little solo album and within a week it had been downloaded 8000 times and caused one of the buzzes of the year, among music fans and among our writers.
And how truly British it was that the single that brought everyone together down the indie disco was in fact a song about failure in that same situation: "I know I won't be leaving here with you," sang capo Kapranos, and a million hearts were bewlidered.
