"Take A Chance On Me" was released in January 1978 and peaked at #1 in the UK Charts. The video is classic ABBA and served as inspiration for Steps video for "Last Thing On My Mind". This classic track reached #1 again in 1992 as the lead 'single' for Erasure's Abba-esqe EP. Superb cover - this has also been covered by the A*Teens and Julie Walters. A Shame this was voted out as there are much less worthy tracks left.


Erasure cover

“Take A Chance On Me” was voted out with 9 votes, just ahead of 'Mamma Mia' with 8 votes. Close!
Next, "Lay All Your Love On Me", “The Winner Takes It All” and "Dancing Queen" all tied on 5 votes. I suspect the final may be close as well.

The voting will be open for about a week.
