The song proved to be one of ABBA's most successful singles, hitting #1 in West Germany (ABBA's sixth consecutive chart-topper there), the United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico and South Africa, while reaching the Top 3 in Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland. It was also a Top 10 hit in Australia, France, New Zealand and Norway.
