The Winner Takes it All is about her failed marriage to Bjorn Ulvaeus.
Despite this, Agnetha Fältskog admits its her favorite ABBA song.
For most women, divorce is a heartbreaking memory they would rather forget.
But Abba star Agnetha Fältskog has a constant reminder of that pain – thanks to one of the group’s biggest hits.
Her ex-husband and former bandmate, Björn Ulvaeus, wrote The Winner Takes it All about the collapse of their nine-year marriage.
But despite the deeply personal subject matter, the Swedish singer has revealed that the 1980 chart-topper is her favorite from Abba’s back catalogue, because of its honesty.
In her first major interview in 30 years, the 63-year-old said: “Björn wrote it about us after the breakdown of our marriage. The fact he wrote it exactly when we divorced is touching really. I didn’t mind. It was fantastic to do that song because I could put in such feeling. I didn’t mind sharing it with the public. It didn’t feel wrong. There is so much in that song. It was a mixture of what I felt and what Björn felt but also what Benny and Frida [the other couple in Abba, who also divorced] went through”.
