Have you heard the latest song by ABBA that's actually not by ABBA?

In case you have come across, on the site, my temporary irritation with Lauren Daigle trying to sound like Adele with her "You Say" (I've since gotten over my irritation and I like her singing) --

it happened again for me --

Here is Ava Max doing a great imitation of ABBA with her "Kings and Queens."   And I do like this song quite a bit. Question posted in fun.

    I've heard Kings & Queens by Ava Max.  It's a good song.  I also love ABBA.  I'm also a metalhead, so I absolutely love heavy metal versions of ABBA songs as well as the original versions from ABBA.

    Are there heavy metal versions of ABBA songs? That'd be cool for me to hear. I'm open to pretty much anything (But I admit that even now, when I hear the "You Say" I still sometimes forget who is singing it -- Daigle or Adele, ha --
    And I I like Weezer but I get irritated with their cover of Toto's "Africa" simply because, to me, it sounds SO much like Toto's original. If I want to hear Toto sing it, I'll listen to Toto, ha.) 

    Be Well

    Here is Therion's version of Summer Night City:

    I love Amberian Dawn's version of Lay All Your Love on Me.

    I think this is the best cover of SOS:

    Tommy Reinxeed made an album of ABBA covers.  He also has covers of songs by Roxette in Swedish Hitz Goes Metal.

    Oh, MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I could stay here all day I think! I had no idea!!

    I love ABBA's 'The Winner Takes It All" - - my favorite song by them!! And I like this version you've shared!

    How fun!

    I like when artists give a new "take" on the songs they cover.

    Thanks for being the only person to have answered my very astute-and-accurate-to-me question. Ha! :)

    I saw earlier this morning in another site that this Ava  song is just like a Bon Jovi and Bonnie Tyler song. I couldn’t hear it until I found this video.

    That was fun!

    That video also includes Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven is a Place on Earth," ha!

    (The main thing that sounds like ABBA to me is the vocal harmony on that chorus)

    She was definitely influenced by a lot of artists.I thought the mashup was fun too. We need to fine one with Abba.:)
