Erasure - Abba-esque

From 1992, this EP from Erasure consisted of cover versions of four Abba songs. Originally it had been planned to release a full album of ABBA covers. The release gave the duo their first UK number one. Many credit this EP release as a major catalyst for a revival of ABBA's music in the 1990s. The greatest hits album "ABBA Gold" would be released by the end of the summer, and the coming years saw a heavy emphasis on ABBA music in the Australian motion pictures Muriel's Wedding and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. By the decade's end, the musical Mamma Mia! had opened in the West End.
