Additional information

Directed by Lasse Hallström, this was the first single that Frida took the lead vocal on - and the first time both girls appeared wearing the "gypsy" dresses (although Agnetha had worn her dress in The Best of ABBA (Musikladen Extra) a week or so earlier).

ABBA are seen sitting around a campfire with Benny and Björn on guitars.  Lasse Hallström once again used the close-up views of one side-on/one full-on faces he started with Mamma Mia.

In a video shown at the ABBAWORLD exhibition in London (January 2010) - and then subsequently at the ABBA Museum in Stockholm, Lasse Hallström admitted that his close-up on the sunset in the first image was a pan-out of a magazine picture. He also admitted that the backdrop was just a black curtain with holes in so that light could get through!

This clip has been released officially several times.  Most recently, you can find it on ABBA - The Definitive Collection.

Benny's guitar is on display at the ABBA Museum in Stockholm.

On Friday 16 September 2022, a new lyric video was premièred on YouTube.
