Just A Notion, by ABBA
The third song to be released as an advance single of the upcoming ABBA album, this song is an upbeat and cheerful song that fits clearly within ABBA’s body of work as a whole. The song itself reflects the desire for intimacy between the narrator and her romantic interest as “just a notion” that comes from feelings that may be mistaken, for all of the faith of the narrator. The tension between the honest admission that such warmth is a notion and is not necessarily reality and the confidence that the singer has in her feelings fits the sort of tension that we often find in our lives, and those looking for classic ABBA here will find much to enjoy and appreciate in this upbeat but pleasingly emotionally complex tune.
