All of the songs that I have listed are ABBA songs that peaked at number one in the UK - and all of these songs are in chronological order.

1. Waterloo (peaked at #1 in May 1974, and stayed at the top for 2 weeks)
2. Mamma Mia (peaked at #1 in January 1976, and stayed at the top for 2 weeks)
3. Fernando (peaked at #1 in May 1976, and stayed at the top for 4 weeks)
4. Dancing Queen (peaked at #1 in September 1976, and stayed at the top for 6 weeks)
5. Knowing Me, Knowing You (peaked at #1 in April 1977, and stayed at the top for 5 weeks)
6. The Name of the Game (peaked at #1 in November 1977, and stayed at the top for 4 weeks)
7. Take A Chance On Me (peaked at #1 in February 1978, and stayed at the top for 3 weeks)
8. The Winner Takes It All (peaked at #1 in August 1980, and stayed at the top for 2 weeks)
9. Super Trouper (peaked at #1 in November 1980, and stayed at the top for 3 weeks)

Nine number one singles, and 31 weeks at the top. Thatís an average of 3.44 weeks at the top.

This cheer.gif Had to pick Waterloo for the no. 1 though because without it there would literally be no ABBA (they were called BjŲm & Benny, Agnetha & Frida up until its release).
