Over the next 51 weeks, I’ll be showcasing 51 songs from the past. Who better to start the music ball rolling, with a song very apt for the time of year, than one of the best-selling groups of all time, ABBA.

‘Happy New Year’ is a song taken from the 1980 album, Super Trouper. However, it wasn’t until 1999 that it was first released as a single in several European countries. Since then it has been rereleased several times with its highest chart position being in 2008 at number 4 in Sweden. The song has never been released as a single in the UK, which is one of the reasons I’ve chosen to showcase it.
