Here We Go Again! Mama Mia is back! Here are 8 of our favourite ABBA songs!

Here we go again indeed!

Mama Mia! is back! (Sneaks 8 August, Opens 9 August, check showtimes here )

Ten years after the release of the first Mama Mia! (2008), the long-awaited sequel is finally coming to our big screens.

Good news! Some of ABBA's lesser known songs such as When I Kissed The Teacher and Kisses of Fire will be featured alongside, of course, the Best Of.

There is no perfect time than now to revisit ABBA's most beloved songs as well as memorable scenes from the first Mama Mia! movie.

InCinemas picks the top 8 ABBA songs.

8. Lay All Your Love on Me

Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper had great chemistry in this scene from the first movie, in which their characters Sophie and Sky reminisce about their time together.

Unfortunately, this song will not be featured in the sequel. Hopefully, it will be in the third movie!

7. Voulez-Vous

Voulez-Vous is French for "Do you want?" 

6. Fernando

One of ABBA's best-selling singles, Fernando topped the charts in more than 10 countries and sold over 10 million copies worldwide. 

The first movie omitted Fernando, but fortunately, the tragic omission has now been rectified.

The Goddess of Pop, Cher, will cover the song in the new movie.

5. The Winner Takes It All

A powerhouse solo performance and cover from Meryl Streep.

So it's unfortunate that this song, which was voted Britain's favourite ABBA song in 1999 and was also ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog's personal favourite, won't be covered in the movie sequel.

We protest! Bring it back for the third movie!

4. Take a Chance on Me

Fun fact: Even Alvin and the Chipmunks covered this song before! It was for their album Chipmunk Rock.

3. Dancing Queen

One of ABBA's most iconic songs, Dancing Queen will be sung by the stellar cast of Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters and Pierce Brosnan in Here We Go Again.

2. Mama Mia!

Of course, this song has to be included!

Sung by Meryl Streep's Donna in the first movie, the mantle of singing what is unarguably ABBA's most famous song will fall to English actress Lily James, who will be playing a young Donna. 

Will Lily James surpass the great Meryl Streep? Watch the movie and find out!

1. I Have A Dream

It was a tough choice between Mama Mia! and I Have a Dream

Many people are bound to disagree, but to each his/her own. 

Previously sung by Amanda Seyfried, in Here We Go Again, Lily James will cover the song in the new movie. 

Fun fact: Westlife covered I Have a Dream in 1999, and it's one of my favourite covers of this song.
