C'mon. Some of the lyrics would be improved upon if a chimp threw its own poo at the lyric sheet.

I like Abba and The Visitors is overall a good album with some excellent numbers. The trouble is it could have been great but they threw Two For The Price Of One which is atrocious; a song badly produced and sung with a terrible storyline, dire lyrics and abysmal twist that is meant to be humorous but never gets anywhere close. And it wasn't a one-off in Abba's catalogue.

As you may know they are huge down here.  I have a couple of their DVDs and don't mind them once every three years or so - plus they inspired a couple of Mike Oldfield remakes I really like.

It's a documentary about their Aussie tour, yeah. I half-watched it when it was on afternoon TV about ten years ago. (I think I took a sick day from work, or had a vacation day or something.)

lol you're so cruel! :D

I saw part of the movie but got bored - I recall something about the band being pursued by some DJ for an interview (which still beats Give My Regards To Broad Street for plot excitement).
