Parody Song Title:
"ABBA, Wooh! (Hall Of Fame Induction Tribute, Vol. I)"
To-day, in Rock and Roll, at Hall of Fame, did they enter
Oh, yeah! And they were yet the best to me, did brighten 70s day
Among highest sales on the shelf 
Their music: it speaks for itself!
ABBA, who? Anni-Frid Lyngstad; Ulvaeus, Björn
Andersson, Benny; Fältskog, Anna; group was born
Capitals? All their initials, did name construe
Acronym: Anni-frid, Benny, Björn, Anna, too [2}
Hall of Fame: finally getting their rightful due
My, my, They toured the world and back, but how much longer?
Divorce! -- Sometimes it seems success-romance just never turn out right
Though who could great fortune, refuse? --
-- Although wealth, you win; love, you lose 
Wonderful: First Europeans, our charts, to score 
Durable: Records still selling; new fans, adore 
Generous: copyright donated; UNICEF 
East and down: Australia: great tour; Japan's was, too
Now we know: how many folks to fill Albert Hall 
And if you feel down with the blues
Their music is better than booze! 
ABBA tunes: From cassette tape to CD-ROM, go you
ABBA, true: Highly you rate for each song you do
ABBA crew: World-wide, succeeded, like very few
ABBA, your -- faithful fans ne'er will forget your name
ABBA, Wooh! Finally gracing the Hall of Fame
 Record sales figures can be very inaccurate; promoters inflate them to boost a group's image. Best guess, based on reputed worldwide sales: Fourth, behind Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson.
 If the greatest mystery in life has been why the band's name was capitalized, we are very pleased to have ended the quest.
Besides, lower-case Abba is also the name of a well-known fish-canning company in Sweden....
 The Ulvaeus-Fältskog marriage ended in 1979; the Andersson-Lyngstad marriage in 1981.
 First group from mainland Europe (i. e., not the British Isles) to achieve consistent success througout the Anglophone world (i. e., those countries where the phones transmit only English).
 Reportedly still selling 2-3 million albums a year.
 January 9, 1979, the group performed "Chiquitita" at the Music for UNICEF** Concert. ABBA donated the copyright to UNICEF. The single was released the following week, and reached #1 in ten countries.
Unfortunately, it was also parodied by a certain disrespectful pair-o-dissed-s, and will be posted this week. ("Fair and Balanced", we like to call it ;)
**Originally, United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, now known by that acronym, but by the shorter name, United Nations Children's Fund.
(Tommy Turtle takes sole blame for this atrocious mash-up -- is Fiddlegirl a saint, or what?)
From The Beatles' "A Day in the Life": "Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall."
In 1977, the group gave two concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall. Tickets for these shows were available only by mail application, and it was later revealed that the box office received 3.5 million requests for tickets, enough to fill the venue 580 times over.
 If you're feeling down, try "Take A Chance On Me" or "Dancing Queen" (yes, that parody's coming) and see if the ol' flippers don't start flappin'.
