NOTES :

The single, a duet with Elaine Paige, is lifted from the original studio cast recording of the musical 'Chess'.

Barbara flew to Stockholm to record the track at ABBA's recording studios, Polar.

As their vocals were recorded separately, Barbara and Elaine never actually met until promotion for the 'Chess' album began.

The single was a number one in the UK and also a hit in Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand

The song went on to sell almost a million copies, was certified platinum, and remains in the Guiness Book of Records as the best-selling single ever by a female duo.
