The Swedish cult group, which once consisted of Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog, has so far refused to perform together again. Benny has suggested, however, that a reunion can not be ruled out. "Yes, why not, " explains the singer and composer. "I do not know if the girls are still singing, but I know that Frida was in the studio recently." Although Benny and Björn have been close to each other since the break-up in the '80s, the female band members have so far stayed out of the limelight. While Agnetha has said in the past how much she hated the time in the pop band, her ex-husband Björn says that much of what was said was exaggerated. "At the time, she did not seem unhappy, " he says. "It's strange how sometimes the story is rewritten and then it becomes the truth." Because the perception of the past changes with time, fans in his opinion are now yearning for a reunion of the band, which thrilled with songs like 'Waterloo', 'Dancing Queen' and 'Mamma Mia'. "People do not just want to hear the songs, " says Björn in an interview with The Times. "It has more to do with the fact that people want to get into a kind of fictitious mood, a 70s atmosphere that represents ABBA but is not rooted in reality."
