Gimme, Gimme, Gimme

For those of you saddened by today's news that Abba will never again don their spangly pants and seranade the masses, Fluxblog has some salve for your mental wounds. The site is offering a download of one of the band's 'lost songs', You Owe Me One.

In reality, the track is not so much lost as hard-to-find. It was a B-side on one of their later, less popular singles but has just been re-released on the band's latest cash-in sublime "Complete Studio Recordings" boxset.

The song is famous amongst fans because it was due to feature on Abba's never-completed ninth studio album. It even has a rather grandly titled "fanclub", which is little more than a glorified webpage.

Beware: This is not the sort of Abba song you'll like if you're a fan of Mamma Mia and Dancing Queen. It bears more relation to late-period "The Visitors" Abba. You know, that cheesy sing-song synth nonsense that Erasure have been trying to emulate since 1992.
