If it wasn't for the nights,
This review is from: Voulez-Vous (Audio CD)
I agree If it wasn't for the nights should have been 'the' single from the album. Much better than Chiquitita and the horrid I have a dream, my least favourite abba song made even worse by the westlife cover. I think they picked all the wrong tracks for single. As good as new could have done well too. I absolutely love Dream world. With Just like that would have got them back in the top ten i'm sure. Do they have both tracks that they performed on the Mike Yarwood christmas show? They did Thank you for the music too. Unfortunately miming to both. Hilarious interview with Mike as Larry Grayson. Not my favourite abba album but still great.

It would have been really good to have included the entire Mike Yarwood piece as it was an extremely funny take-off of what was, at the time, one of the biggest shows on the BBC; Larry Grayson's Generation Game. Abba were the 'contestants' and their task was to perform a song which they duly did; 'Thank you for the Music'. The performance of the then-unheard 'If it wasn't for the Nights' was the opening piece of the sketch. As you observe, shame both were mimed, but hey, it wasn't often that Abba appeared on any TV shows so just having them there was something special.
