Agnetha: ABBA & After - BBC Documentary

Agnetha Fältskog’s extraordinary singing career began when she was only 15 years old. But in just two years she was knocking The Beatles off the top of the Swedish pop charts writing her own material.

This new programme features exclusive access to Agnetha in the studio and with her colleagues of both recent years and from ABBA, assessing and celebrating her journey as Sweden's 'girl with the golden hair'.
Her self-penned debut single “Jag var så kar”, (I Was So In Love) sold more than 80,000 copies and she fast became one of Sweden’s most popular music artists. However, a chance meeting with Björn Ulvaeus led to her marriage, winning Eurovision and the phenomenal ABBA years.
With ABBA’s success came hard work, TV appearances, vast crowds, demanding tours and for Agnetha being away from her children eventually caused her great turmoil.
Agnetha loved being in the recording studio, and Frida and Agnetha without doubt gave the ABBA songs a distinct sound. However, many argue that ABBA would not have reached the same heights without Agnetha’s pure voice and arresting beauty. For this shy girl from the small Swedish town of Jönköping it was a struggle to match up to co-star Frida who had such confidence and a natural flair for performing.
After a much-publicised divorce from Björn, and as ABBA eventually came to an end, Agnetha briefly tried to build a solo career with moderate success until she eventually walked away from the public eye traumatised by fame.
Since then, the world’s press has engaged in an endless game of conjecture about the private life of a women catapulted to international stardom in 1974. But now, after 25 years, Agnetha Fältskog has stepped back into the limelight with new material after working with successful writer Jörgen Elofsson, who has written for artists such as Britney Spears and Westlife.
Back writing again herself, she has also recorded a duet with singer-songwriter Gary Barlow on the album. The vocals were recorded separately and, exclusively in this documentary, Gary Barlow meets Agnetha for the first time.
This intimate and revealing programme features interviews with Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Gary Barlow, Tony Blackburn, record producer Peter Nordahl, Jörgen Elofsson and Sir Tim Rice
Exec Producer: Mark Cooper / Producer & Director: Samantha Peters.

Agnetha Faltskog - Elvis Presley Still Does It For Me

The Comeback: ABBA's Agnetha Fältskog

5.20.2013

By Sami Pritchard

Her new album has already charted in the UK. What does the summer have in store for her?
This summer, ABBA’s Agnetha Fältskog returns with A, her first album of original material since 1987. It's already debuted at No. 6 on the UK album charts. Although you should temper any expectations of the “Dancing Queen”–style belters with which she achieved fame and glory, the bittersweet ballad “When You Really Loved Someone” proves that her voice has lost none of its elegance. We caught up.
What’s the most personal song on A?
It would be the song that I wrote myself: “I Keep Them on the Floor Beside My Bed.” It was a great satisfaction to be able write music again.
Why do you think ABBA has attracted such a loyal gay following?
I think it partly comes from how ABBA was presented from the start -- with high heels, spectacular costumes, and music you wanted to dance to.
Why is Sweden everywhere, from Robyn to Ikea and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?
We have been very open-minded about picking up influences from around the world, especially from England and the United States.
It’s your voice that dominates in the ABBA classic “The Winner Takes It All.” How did you feel watching Meryl Streep sing it in Mamma Mia?
It’s never an easy task to try to perform a song as well as the original, but she is a great actress and did her own interpretation that suits the
movie wonderfully.
As a child you were a big fan of Connie Francis. Who are your other music heroes?
One of my absolute favorites is Nina Simone. When she sings it hurts inside of me. Elvis Presley still does it for me. I wish I’d had the chance to sing a duet with him.
ABBA now has its own museum in Stockholm, including a life-sized hologram of the band. How does it feel to be a tourist attraction?
A bit weird because we are still alive! But it’s good to have a place where I can leave my ABBA clothes and accessories.

ABBA Overtakes The Beatles !

Abba's greatest hits collection has overtaken The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper in the chart of the biggest selling albums in British musical history.
 
While both albums have sold over 5.1 million copies in the UK, the Swedish band's 1992 Best Of collection has now nudged ahead of The Beatles' 1967 album by nearly 15,000 copies.
An estimated one in five British households owns a copy of either Gold or Sgt Pepper's.
The announcement coincides with this year's Eurovision Song Contest being held in Abba's homeland. The group won Eurovision in 1974 with Waterloo, which became their first number one single in the UK.
Bjorn Ulvaeus, who co-wrote Abba hits including Dancing Queen, Knowing Me Knowing You and The Name Of The Game said: “It feels unreal - outselling the greatest record of all time.”
Queen's 1981 Greatest Hits album remains the UK's most popular, with 5.9 million sales.
Adele's 2011 album, 21, and Oasis' 1995 second album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, complete the top 5.
This week may also mark a double celebration for Abba, with the group's former singer Agnetha Faltskog looking set to score the highest-charting solo album of her career this evening.
Her new offering, A, looks likely to break the top 10 according to mid-week sales figures, while her previous UK best, My Colouring Book, peaked at Number 12.

New ABBA Collection Item - Agnetha Picture Disc

I love it !!!

Agnetha 'When You Really Loved Someone' 7" Picture Disc








































































Agnetha Faltskog Becomes Loose Woman !

Abba's Agnetha Faltskog becomes Loose Woman for the day
and admits "there's no way the band will reunite"

The Swedish legend was quizzed by Carol Vorderman about duetting with Gary Barlow on her new album and why there'll never be an Abba reunion

ABBA singer Agnetha Faltskog has become a Loose Woman for the day as she was quizzed by Carol Vorderman.
The pair met up in London in front of the ITV cameras to discuss Agnetha's new solo album, her first music for over three decades.
But first she spoke about the UK's Eurovision hopeful Bonnie Tyler, and 63-year-old Agnetha said: “Does she need any advice? I don't think so. I think she has a great voice. I wish her all the best. Really.”
The former Eurovision winner went on to say that Sweden have a “very strong song” themselves for the event in Malmo at the weekend and that she would be watching.
Referring to her own music, Agnetha said: “It came out like this, I have a girlfriend who was calling me and saying that Jorgen Elofsson who was the producer and also composer of the record and Peter Nordahl the arranger would like to meet me and play three new songs for me. I was very curious and exciting and I just felt I had to do this.”
Agnetha Faltskog

 She took vocal lessons to get back to her best and the new album A even includes a duet with Gary Barlow, although it was not recorded together.
“When he did his recording in Stockholm, I was on vacation so I didn't meet him,” Agnetha said of the Take That star.
“I just heard his voice in the ear phone and I thought I have to match this wonderful voice in a duet, how can I do that? I just imagine him standing beside and we sang to each other.
“I recently met him here for the first time.”
Agnetha, who was married to bandmate Bjorn Ulvaeus as they had huge success in the Seventies, talked about her Abba roots for the interview which goes out on Loose Women today(THURS).
She is delighted people are still fans of the music and said: “Oh that means a lot, it goes from generation to generation and you can wonder why, it's because it's such a good energy in it, I think the girls and the boys want to dress like us and they want to sing along.”
But she admitting continuing in the band after her divorce from Bjorn was tough and put on a strain on everything.
Asked if she was still in touch with the other members, she added: “Yes I met Anni-Frid last summer in vacation, we sat down and had a long talk and got very nostalgic, we have a lot of good memories together and I meet Benny now and again in his studio and I meet Bjorn often because of the children and grandchildren.
"We see each other now and again.”
Sadly Agnetha finished the chat by confirming Abba would not be reforming.
As Carol, 52, cried “noooooo”, Agnetha said: “There's no way I think. We have our own separate lives now and it's so long way back, we are getting older and I think in a way we should let Abba rest.”

You can see the full chat on Loose Women today (Thurs) on ITV.

In her first interview for almost 30 years, Agnetha said the band's shows were nothing compared to today's acts as they were not taught how to perform on stage.
And the reclusive star also admitted she never enjoyed appearing live.
She said: "I'm more of a recording person, I prefer to be private.
"I didn't mind doing videos, I can take that, but walking on stage in concert and singing live, that is a bit difficult. And I don't think we sounded or looked very good."

Agnetha Faltskog: “I have suffered from bad self-confidence” - The Big Issue May 2013 UK


























Ex-Abba star Agnetha Faltskog talks to The Big Issue about her return to music after more than 30 years.

After over three decades of hiding from the public eye, pop superstar Agnetha Faltskog is back.
Abba idol Agnetha was one of the most famous faces in music in the 1970s, as the Swedes’ popularity exploded across the world, before she disappeared from public life following the band’s split in 1982.
The 63-year-old’s solo album A is released today, but she told The Big Issue how a conversation with daughter Linda Ulvaeus almost put her return to the recording studio on ice.
Agnetha explained: “I talked with my daughter when I was wondering if I should record this new album or not. She said: 'Are you really going into that again? Think twice!' And I did. And then I did it!”
In a candid Letter To My Younger Self, mum-of-two Agnetha reflected on the pitfalls of success, how she has grown to handle her insecurities and the importance of self-confidence.
“I would tell my younger self that winning the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo in 1974 will be the most fantastic thing, but it will also bring problems,” she said.
“My daughter was only one year old, and when we had this enormous success everybody wanted us. It felt really bad leaving her, even though we always had good people taking care of her.
“By the time my son was born in 1977 we were all over the world. [ABBA sold 375 million albums and created hysteria at live shows in Australia and Europe].
“It wasn’t easy doing everything at the same time: world career, getting married, having two children during these years, and then having a divorce one year after my son was born. That was very, very difficult.”
She added: “I would warn 16-year-old Agnetha that she will need stamina. This life gives you a lot but it also takes. You can never be ill. Even if you have a fever you have to work. We had only two cancelled concerts during the Abba tours.
“At 16 I knew I had songs inside me, and she’d be pleased I am writing songs now. It’s not often I sit by the piano and compose, and when I decided to write a song for this album I had to work for it. But I think it is something that will stay with me.
“The advice I would give 16-year-old Agnetha about romance is: never give up! And rely on yourself. It’s so easy to have bad self-confidence, and I have suffered from that.
“Everyone needs someone who says you’re good, you’re very good, you’re better than you think you are. That’s important.”
