Radio 2 listeners have crowned Dancing Queen their favourite ABBA song, taking the No.1 spot in Your Ultimate ABBA Song, in No.2 spot is The Winner Takes It All, No.3 is Thank You For The Music, No. 4 is Slipping Through My Fingers and No.5 is The Day Before You Came.

Gary Davies presented Your Ultimate ABBA Song he notes, “Dancing Queen is one of those songs that just makes you happy every time you hear it and still gets any dancefloor full to this day – a guaranteed singalong! Thank you Radio 2 listeners for crowning such a brilliant track Your Ultimate ABBA Song.”
