Nice little idea! First thought - plonk down all your favourites - instantly rejected, since this selection will constitute an album in effect, and the tracks will have to compliment and contrast, to form a pleasing(ish) whole. On that basis also, I'm not going to sequence them chronologically, I'm going to try and go for a bit of tonal blending:
1. Eagle (painful, having to rule out TNOTG, HIYS and Move On from selection!) 2. Another Town, Another Train 3. SOS 4. The King Has Lost His Crown 5. Knowing Me, Knowing You 6. Suzy-Hang-Around (Dance (WTMSGO) is the best on Waterloo I think, but I can't integrate that here, so I'll go for this personal favourite Benny lead vocal track) 7. Me And I (selects itself as the stand-out from an otherwise notably lacklustre album) 8. Slipping Through My Fingers
Bonus: Lovelight Just remembered about the existence of the unjustly maligned Crazy World (possibly Bjorn's best lead vox, in that he sounds invested, and the arrangement is very nice - really like that little repeating piano figure of Benny's).

1 - I Saw It In The Mirror 2 - Gonna Sing You My Lovesong 3 - SOS 4 - Knowing Me, Knowing You 5 - The Name Of The Game 6 - Kisses Of Fire 7 - The Winner Takes It All 8 - The Visitors Bonus - The Day Before You Came
Guess we could do some solo ones too.
Frida’s early singles before or after her debut album can be categorised as a bonus track if you like.
Frida 1 - Jag Ar Berredd 2 - Liv Pa Mars 3 - I Know There’s Something Going On 4 - One Little Lie 5 - Aven En Blomma Bonus - Du Ar Sa Underbart Rar
Agnetha 1 - Jag Var Sa Kar 2 - Hjartats Kronpins 3 - Don’t know 4 - Drom Ar Drom Och Saga Saga 5 - SOS 6 - Wrap Your Arms Around Me 7 - Click Track 8 - The Last Time 9 - If I Ever Thought You Ever Change Your Mind 10 - Should’ve Followed You Home Bonus - Never Again
I might not necessarily put I Saw It In The Mirror as my one track from its album, but I agree with The Rubber Ball Man, in that it’s the track everyone claims to love to hate, but it really doesn’t deserve it. You’ve got Agnetha and Frida coming in here and there and I enjoy those types of songs. Like Two For The Price of One, sometimes the women truly shine when they’re not centre-stage. They can quietly steel the show.
If I was to do this I’d have to break the rules... I couldn’t mix singles with album tracks so I’d have to do one list for each. Is that allowed?
1. He Is Your Brother 2. Gonna Sing You My Lovesong 3. I've Been Waiting For You 4. Knowing Me, Knowing You 5. The Name Of The Game 6. If It Wasn't For The Nights 7. Lay All Your Love On Me 8. The Visitors 9. [bonus] The Day Before You Came
In case of some of the albums it's like asking to choose your favourite child but here we go...
1. He Is Your Brother 2. Dance (While The Music Still Goes On) 3. I've Been Waiting For You (it's getting harder) 4. Dancing Queen (so many candidates) 5. Hole In Your Soul (don't make me choose just one!!!) 6. Angeleyes 7. The Winner Takes It All (I was on the verge of selecting The Piper but donald_quigley would surely agree that Agnetha's ultimate vocal performance can't be left off 8. The Visitors (tough one) bonus: The Day Before You Came
