This might be some sort of guilty pleasure, but I've just rediscovered this song from the 1980s. Both the lyrics and the instrumentation are exquisite. The poster here has included the lyrics in a 'more info' dropdown. It's the perfect synthesis of the mediaeval troubadour and modern Americana:
Great choice, Thor, and just for you: The actual original LP artwork (below) before Polygram decided to standardize all their ABBA releases and at the same time make the colours all garish. My favourite ABBA album, vastly under-, or not at all, rated. Enjoy!:
Yes, it's really the only ABBA album that I enjoy from start to finish, without any saccharine Eurovision Song Contest-like songs. It certainly points forwards, to the CHESS musical that Benny and Björn were going to write a couple of years later (which is my fav musical of all time). It would have been interesting to hear what ABBA would have sounded like if they had done more albums after THE VISITORS.
