    This poem was set to music by Per Gessle and recorded by Frida of Abba on her 1982 solo album 'Something's Going On'. A beautiful setting of a heart-rending poem. (Report)Reply

    It was the B-side of FRIDA's 1982 single I Know There's Something Going On - and correct that it was a beautiful recording, and one of her best English recordings.
