If you've watched Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again by now, then you'll know there is one particular ABBA song that leaves you more emotional than the rest.

Don't worry, we won't give anything too spoilery away, but the underrated ABBA track was sung by Meryl Streep (Donna), Amanda Seyfried (Sophie) and Lily James (Young Donna) in a beautiful way.

What songs are in Mamma Mia 2?

Listen to the new version - with slightly altered new lyrics by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus - below:

My Love, My Life

'My Love, My Life' - originally titled 'Monsieur, Monsieur' - is taken from the ABBA album Arrival in 1976.

Originally sung by Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn later said that the song was the finest example of Agnetha's vocal purity.

It has also been covered by the likes of Elaine Paige, Hazell Dean and John Grant among others.
