Additional information

A för Agnetha = A for Agnetha

This programme was made to promote Agnetha's Eyes Of A Woman album and ended up also being a great advert for Stockholm in winter due to the amount of snow and beauty on show.

In between the various film clips made to promote six songs from the album, Agnetha could be seen wandering around familiar parts of Stockholm.  

There is a version of A för Agnetha where she speaks Swedish throughout (exactly the same text as the English version).

Running order:

  1. Trying not to be recognised
    Agnetha was walking outside the Grand Hotel and then chased by children through the streets on Gamla Stan
  2. One Way Love
    Agnetha wore a bright pink and green combination of clothing rather reminiscent of Frida's Shine PROMO from the previous year.
  3. Folk parks
  4. Just One Heart
    Agnetha was mainly walking down the street opposite the Polar offices at the time in Hamngatan.
  5. Make-up - done by Agnetha's good friend Lollo Murray.
  6. We Should Be Together
  7. Romping in the snow with her dog Hampus
