Show Around Been

Every time I sit in the audience and watch a show that I have been involved with, it is such an amazing feeling to see all those people around me, knowing they are actually watching and enjoying something I have written.

Comments Devoted Though

Critics used to say that ABBA were formulaic or that our songs were rubbish. We never had time for those comments, though. We were sincere and devoted to what we did.

Always Never Cultural

Cultural variety is always worth striving for, but must never precede the declaration of human rights.

Stockholm Surrounded Very

Stockholm is unique in that it's built on islands and surrounded by water, so you get this enormous sense of freedom. It's got everything you could possibly need - everything New York or London has but without all the people and traffic. It's also become a very creative city, not only for music but also for fashion and computer games.

Doing Misery Ideology

Look at all the misery in the Middle East, for example. All these countries have Islam in common, and far too few dare to criticize Islam as an ideology, and what it's doing to these countries. I know I might get punched in the face for saying these things, but my conviction is that less religion in the world would be better.

Waiting Memory I Remember

All these years later, I have almost no memory of the shows themselves. It's a blur. I remember my jogging runs better - that was my way of getting my energy together. I used to try to get to the arena as late as possible; otherwise, I'd just be pacing around, waiting to go on.

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

Screen Buy Been

I do think that it's better for a musical to live its life first because if you see it on the screen, would you like to go to the theater after that? Probably not. You've seen it. And that's the mystery of a musical that hasn't been filmed. You're bloody meant to go there and buy your ticket.

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

Stress Never Reform

I promise you, ABBA will never reform - I couldn't bear the stress of disappointing everyone.

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

Tired Ideas Giving

I'm so incredibly tired of giving respect to a lot of delusions and crazy ideas just because they are regarded as religions.

Big Been Very

Folk music is where I come from originally. The very first thing that introduced me to playing guitars at all was skiffle - my cousin had been in London the summer that skiffle was big.

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

Average Natural Religious

And also a lot of Muslims are no more religious then the average Swede. For them it's natural that human rights come first.

Religious Schools

I believe that religious faith schools are highly dubious.

Always England Very

England was always very special. It was so important because the reason Benny and I started writing was the Beatles. During the Sixties, England was everything. To be number one in England was more important than being number one in America because England set the tone.

My Life Through Stockholm

There are days when I walk through the center of Stockholm when I get this sudden feeling of happiness - a sense of belonging and at the same time gratitude that I'm so privileged that I can live my life in my city.

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

New Always Take

In my career the push has always been to take another step, to try something new.
