40 Year Itch : Tracy and Daisy, They May Be Crazy,


    On November 3, 1974 ABBA lip-synced "Honey Honey" and their most recent single "So Long" on the Austrian TV show Spotlight. Björn, dressed in what appears to be pajamas, seems especially into the music, while Benny seems to be laughing at himself.

     Of the bubblegum-style music, Björn later said that "If you look at the singles we released straight after Waterloo, we were trying to be more like the Sweet, a semi-glam rock group, which was stupid because we were always a pop group."

    Later in the month, ABBA began a European Tour that was less successful than they hoped. World domination was still a year or two away.
