WELCOME  TO  THIS  SITE,  CELEBRATING  BJÖRN  ULVAEUS
   FOR  HIS  CREATIVE  GENIUS  AND  REMARKABLE  CONTRIBUTIONS                       TO  THE  WONDERFUL  WORLD  OF  MUSIC.   
Björn Ulvaeus was one half of the songwriting genius behind Swedish Pop legend group ABBA.   Benny Andersson, ABBA's  talented keyboard player, was Björn's songwriting partner and close friend.   After the band split up in 1982, Björn turned his talents into writing musicals,  including "Chess", "Kristina" and "Mamma Mia!"                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
My, my.... it was 40 years ago, on April 6, 1974 that  ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton, UK.   This major accomplishment was only the beginning of an extraordinary career for the Legendary Group, and the Rest is History.  Congratulations to Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida on this monumental occasion!  Thank you for the music, ABBA!!
FLASHBACK  TO  THE  CLASSIC  ABBA  PHOTO,  AFTER  WINNING  THE  EUROVISION  SONG  CONTEST  IN  '74.
Björn Ulvaeus, a former member of the Swedish music group ABBA, is photographed during a press preview of 'ABBA The Museum' at the Swedish Music Hall of Fame in Stockholm, Sweden, on Monday May 6, 2013.  ABBA The Museum officially opened its doors to the public on May  7th.   Former ABBA members, Björn, Frida and Benny attended the grand opening of the Museum.  The fourth ABBA member, Agnetha Fältskog, was unavailable since she was promoting her new album in the UK.  The museum is devoted to pop supergroup ABBA, in the Swedish capital, aiming to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors.   

The museum, a permanent exhibition within a  hall of fame for Swedish pop music, features memorabilia such as stage costumes worn by the singers, and visitors will also be able to sing along to ABBA songs alongside life size holograms of the group. 


"Swedish pop music is an important part of our cultural heritage" said former ABBA member Björn Ulvaeus, who is one of those behind the museum's creation.  "And ABBA is of one of the most well-known brands."
 

ABBA shot to fame when they won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Waterloo"  (photos below).  They went on to become one of Sweden's biggest exports with such hit songs as "Dancing Queen" and "Fernando". 

ABBA sold over 370 million records in total worldwide and are part of a rich Swedish pop tradition which includes Roxette, Ace of Base, Europe and Kent.
