Abba Date - 20th November 1976

On the 20th November 1976 Abba's latest single "Money, Money, Money" entered the UK singles chart at number 34 whilst the group's previous single "Dancing Queen" (which reached number 1 back on the 4th September) was still at number 30.

The single continued to move up the chart peaking at number 3 on the 11th December before dropping to number 5 only to move back up to number 3 in the Christmas Day chart at which point the top 5 was as follows -
  1. "When A Child Is Born" - Johnny Mathis
  2. "Under The Moon Of Love" - Showaddywaddy
  3. "Money, Money, Money" - Abba
  4. "Somebody To Love" - Queen
  5. "Portsmouth" - Mike Oldfield
Although the single didn't reach number 1 in the UK it did hit the top spot in seven other countries including Australia, France, Mexico and New Zealand.

Whilst looking at some of the cover artwork (which I have to say is probably my least favourite of all of Abba's singles) I noticed that the Italian release was titled "Money, Money" and, even stranger, the b-side was "Knowing Me, Knowing You".
