3. If at first you don't win Eurovision, simply try again
In 1972, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson were asked to write a song for Sweden's submission into the upcoming 1973 Eurovision song contest. They chose to enter a song called Ring, Ring,’ which did not win. However, ABBA were again chosen to submit a song to Eurovision in 1974. Their entry this time was ‘Waterloo,’ which won the contest and reached number one across Europe.
