The Band: ABBA
The Song: “When All Is Said And Done”
The Romance: The members of ABBA were known for churning out pop hit after pop hit that had little to do with their personal lives. (I mean, do you honestly think they knew a guy in wartime named Fernando or saw Waterloo?) They were for a long time just two married couples who liked singing about Dancing Queens together. However, in 1980, Bjorn and Agnetha divorced, and then, in 1981, Benny and Frida divorced. Bjorn wrote “When All Is Said And Done” about his friends’ break up, but like a lot of the more somber ABBA tunes of this time, it could have also been subconsciously about his own split.
