Italian "Money, Money, Money" Double A-Side

In Italy Abba's "Money, Money, Money" was released as a double a-side with "Knowing Me, Knowing You" however the single didn't enter the Italian charts which is strange when you consider that both of these tracks had been huge hits across the most of Europe.

In fact Abba only had three top ten hits in Italy whilst they were together -

  • "S.O.S" / "Mamma Mia" - number 2
  • "Fernando" - number 6
  • "The Winner Takes It All" - number 7

Even the mighty "Dancing Queen" only managed to reach number 17 which was also the position "Waterloo" reached.

The other odd thing about the singles release in Italy was that on the cover the song title is printed as "Money Money" although on the vinyl it was printed with the correct name...
