Music Video of the Day: Fernando by ABBA (1976, dir. Lasse Hallström) + Spanish Version


After yesterday’s long post on Money, Money, Money; here’s a nice and easy one. There are only two noteworthy things I can find.

One is that it was popular enough to warrant both a Swedish and Spanish version in addition to this English one. However, I can’t find a Spanish specific version of the music video like you can with some of their later songs. The best I could find is the video below that says it was recorded for the Lina Morgan Show and dubbed. Seeing as I can’t find any record of this being a music video rather than a live performance with some effects put in, I’m just including it here.

The other is that the song was originally released by Frida for her solo album Frida ensam, and then was done by ABBA. Apparently, the Swedish lyrics differ quite a bit from the English one. Here is the song sung in Swedish with English subtitles.

Enjoy!
