I actually love PS I Love You, though I can admit it's not a great song. I think Love Me Do is to me what Hold Me Tight is to you.

Well, I have cried (rarely, but I have) and/or made me feel sad/melancholic on some songs because of a specific situation matched in someway with the song lyrics. Just the ones I can remember that made me feel like that:

The Beatles: It's Only Love, Real Love, She's Leaving Home, No Reply, I'm A Loser, I Don't Want To Spoil The Party, You've Got To Hide Your Love Away, Michelle, For No One, The Fool On The Hill, Dear Prudence, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, I Will, Julia, Mother Nature's Son, Good Night, The Long And Winding Road, Because, Yes It Is, Goodbye (Paul's demo).

The Beach Boys: Lonely Sea, In My Room, Your Summer Dream, The Warmth Of The Sun, Please Let Me Wonder, In The Back Of My Mind, Surf's Up, Ballad Of Ole' Betsy, A Young Man Is Gone, And Your Dream Comes True, Keep An Eye On Summer, God Only Knows.

ABBA: Disillusion, Hasta Mañana, SOS, Knowing Me Knowing You, Chiquitita, The Winner Takes It All, One Of Us, Slipping Through My Fingers, Like An Angel Passing Through My Room, The Day Before You Came.

Queen/Freddie Mercury: These Are The Days Of Our Lives, Bijou, Delilah, Don't Try So Hard, Nevermore, Living On My Own, I Was Born To Love You, A Winter's Tale, Mother Love.

@TheOneBeatleManiac 

Are you able to recommend an Abba album (not a greatest hits, i have both Gold compilations)? Was watching a documentary about them last night and thought about giving one a go. Is the Visitors any good? Its supposedly darker and less poppy than the others.

The Day Before You Came is easily in my top 5 Abba tracks, its brilliantly done with an amazing lead vocal by Agnetha.

For me, The Visitors is their best album they did and one of the three out of eight I have heard in its entirety. The others that I have heard entirely are Ring Ring – their first – (try it, though it has a pretty different feeling from the others) and Super Trouper – their next to last – (hear it too, it is a great album like The Visitors as well). I am currently going through their second album, Waterloo, and so far, it is good though there's a really bad song there though their familiar sound is starting from here.

On The Visitors, it is true that, it is dark but also mature than their other albums, as they touch mainly themes of protest, isolation, regret and break-up, but there's a couple of poppy songs like their past albums as well. It only contains 9 songs, but I enjoyed all of them, specially: The Visitors, Head Over Heels, One Of Us, Two For The Price Of One, Slipping Through My Fingers & Like An Angel Passing Through My Room.

You should get the Deluxe Edition because it adds a song that was recorded for the album but released as a single, ''Should I Laugh Or Cry'', which is one of my favorites of them. Plus, they included five out of six songs that were recorded the next year after The Visitors. Three of them were recorded for a planned ninth album, ''Just Like That'', ''I Am The City'' and ''You Owe Me One'' but sessions were too tense and decided to shelve those songs, and do a double compilation album of old and new singles instead, recording three other songs, ''Cassandra'', ''Under Attack'' and ''The Day Before You Came'' (their last song recorded). These three plus one of the ninth album sessions (''You Owe Me One'') were released as singles, and around 10 years later, a second one (''I Am The City'') was released. Only ''Just Like That'' has appeared in bootlegs, and it is one of their best songs ever but hasn't been released officially (only the chorus as part of ABBA: Undeleted) because Bjorn and Benny (the songwriters and the male members of ABBA) don't think the song actually works.

Thank you for the detailed reply. I'm in Glasgow on Friday so will see what i can hunt down at a reasonable price (ie reduced), hopefully will find a copy of The Visitors (Deluxe) as it does sound the most interesting.

 

Edit: I wonder how far you can go before coming across a Beatles reference. Reading the wiki entry for 'The Visitors' entry and came across "Even more intriguing, however, was that the reviews of The Visitors now freely included references to "[The] Beatles' psychedelic harmonies, moods and textures", "George Harrison's beguiling eastern charms", and "Steven Sondheim's dark melodies". It reflected further shifting of critical attitudes towards the essence of ABBA's music.".

Indeed. Also, this Deluxe Edition is the best sounding version since the original CD release back in 1981 (And as an added geeky fact, it was the first CD manufactured ever).
All other CD remasters had been plagued by the Loudness War and noise reduction.

I think no one can stop finding Beatles references as they're the most known/best band of all time, specially if you are a Beatle fan.

I just watched the Free As A Bird video… and I felt myself welling up. Those were the most amazing chills ever. Oh my god.
