Eagle
ABBA Lyrics


They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell
I love hearing the stories that they tell
They've seen places beyond my land and they've found new horizons
They speak strangely but I understand

And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

As all good friends we talk all night, and we fly wing to wing
I have questions and they know everything
There's no limit to what I feel, we climb higher and higher
Am I dreaming or is it all real?

Is it true I'm an eagle?
Is it true I can spread my wings?
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky (I'm an eagle)
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (What a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky (I'm an eagle)
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (What a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky (I'm an eagle)
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (What a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

ABBA - ( 1972 och 1983 ) is considered to be one of the largest in music history with over 400 million records sold in (2014 ) but new satisic`s say`s that in some bananrepublics that is maybe 100 million records or more not regristrated AND ABBA`s Manager Stig "Stickan "Andersson was a buisnessman and changing record`sales to stocking`s like oil art and what ever - he`s dead and they say that he is the only one who did know the EXACT number of sales.

ABBA - is one of the few artists to have achieved success across ALL the continents of the earth. In the mid -1970s, they were the most successful pop group in the world in all
categories.

Abba has almost 70 singles as No. 1 worldwide and over 60 albums no 1 worldvide. In the UK they had 19 straight top 10 singles, 9 singles and nine albums as no. 1 on the British top list of which eight are in succession (1975, -76, -77, -78, -79, -80, -81, -82). In 2014, the group had sold 400 million records and is thus Sweden's most successful music export of all time.
Abba became the first pop group from Continental Europe / Nordic to achieve greater success in the English-speaking world for a long time.

- ABBA had so MANY HIT`s so they dont had the time to tour the Usa more than once - ( and they did`nt want to be the Opening act for any group so they waited for USA they had a number one hit - DANCING QUEEN - A lot of Tv Commersials Worldvide and Videos make them ( and The Beatles ) pioneers in making Music VIDEO`s for sale before MTV .
- ABBA music has been around over 40 years, they have released over 100 compilations and sold records in a 100 or more territories and you know that kind of thing (even in small amounts) does add up over time. ABBA is a uniquely universal group, selling or having their music stolen in every conceivable market. ABBA were popular in the heyday in even less traditional markets like Japan, Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Philippines, and nowadays in places like China and Korea. We just can’t nail down a total sales numbers.. I guess will never know.
- ABBA did 3 Big Live Tours - European Tour 1974-75. - 1977 Touring Europe and Australia, where the group was extremely popular, ("ABBA Mania") and was documented in the feature film ABBA - The Movie, which received a bio premiere in December 1977. During the first half of 1978, the group did a promotional tour in the United States, where the single "Take a Chance on Me" climbed to third place. ABBA has sent 20 songs onto the Hot 100 (all between 1974 and 1982), earning four top 10 s among 14 top 40 hits. ... ABBA has also landed 13 albums on the Billboard 200 (from 1974 to 2011), six of which reached the chart's top 40, led by The Album, which rose to No. 14, the act's best rank, in 1978. - No 1 Hit "Dancing Queen " in 1976 ) -
In the fall of 1979 the group toured Europe, USA and Canada. In the spring of 1980, the tour continued to Japan, which would be their last concert tour before the break. In 1980, two singles were released which, before the break, became the group's last one on the UK singles list: "The Winner Takes It All" and "Super Trouper The live album" ABBA Live at Wembley Arena 1979 "
- ABBA World Tour 1979-80 Live Record "ABBA LIVE at WEMBLEY LONDON 1979 " (On Youtube in HD Song`s like "Summer Night City " Does Yor Mother Know " Hole in Your Soul " Gimme Gimme Gimme " and many more )

- ABBA: The Tour, later also labelled ABBA in Concert and ABBA: North American and European Tour 1979, was the third and final concert tour by the Swedish pop group, ABBA. Primarily visiting North America, Europe and Asia during 1979–1980, the tour supported the group's sixth studio album, Voulez-Vous. The tour opened in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on September 13, 1979, and closed in Tokyo, Japan on March 27, 1980, having performed 52 shows in 40 cities across 13 countries. As it was the group's final tour before unofficially disbanding in late 1982, it included the largest catalogue of hit songs performed on a tour.

Why is this song so under-rated? It is an absolute classic!!!

Erika Anna Bosnyak

Your right! My favorite. Beautiful

Eric George

@Tim Colder When I kissed the Teacher...Now you are talking, that is a wonderful song. I just love it.

Tim Colder

Many of their earlier tracks are less well known if they were not released as singles. I had the arrival album from 1976 and the first greatest hits album on vinyl from the same period but did not know this track until I saw Abba the movie. Although never released as a single still one of my favourites along with 'When I kissed the teacher' off arrival which was also not released as a single.

Eric George

@Trilok Pandya Good choice.

Trilok Pandya

I also surprised that about under rating. My all-time favourite.
