Following are the Abba charts for Mexico. They are courtesy of Gustavo Ruiz Moran, who was the President of the Abba fan club in Mexico. In Mexico, charts are divided into two portions - the Spanish, and the English (foreign music). It is exceptionally difficult for an overseas artist to make the Spanish chart, and Abba did it more than once - surprising since the Spanish portion is dominated by artists from Mexico, Argentina and Spain in that order. Apparently Abba hold a record for foreign artists in Mexico, with over 6 million singles sold. Gustavo blames some of the failures of Abba singles on RCA, due to releases being either too far apart, or too close together. One again, a big thank you to Gustavo! Thanks is also due to Marco for putting Gustavo in touch with me regarding the charts!
Key to Abbreviations:
Date: This is the month and year the single or album was released. Chart entry is usually within two to five weeks of this date.
Title: The title of the single or album. With singles, if there are two titles listed on one line, that single was considered a double A side.
HP(1): The highest position the item reached in the charts, and if it was a number one single, how many weeks spent at number 1.
