Notes

  • A^ "Ring Ring" was originally credited to "Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Frida" in the Netherlands. The UK, Australian and New Zealand chart entry was the 1974 remix (released following "Waterloo"'s Eurovision success), not the 1973 original.
  • B^ "Eagle" (edited version) was released as a double A-side in most regions coupled with "Thank You for the Music" in 1977.
  • C^ "Voulez-Vous" was released as a double A-side in the UK and Ireland with "Angeleyes". In Canada and the United States, "Voulez-Vous" and "Angeleyes" were released on the same single but charted separately.
