SALT LAKE CITY — “Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing. Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing,” ABBA enthusiastically sings in a late-1970s music video. The blonde-haired, powerhouse vocalist Agnetha Faltskog leads ABBA in the joyous tune, “Thank You for the Music,” inviting the many children surrounding the stage to sing along.

At the video’s 2:17 mark, there’s a close-up of a girl, also with blonde hair, whose smile becomes so wide she’s unable to continue singing. She begins laughing and places her hand over her mouth as if to contain her happiness.

That beaming girl was Camilla Dahlin, and “Thank You for the Music” remains her favorite ABBA song to this day.
