Does Your Mother Know" which has no questionmark was written by the team of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. Running to 3 minutes 16 seconds, with Björn doing the singing and backed by "Kisses Of Fire," it was released in April 1979; overtly commercial even for ABBA, this had hit single written all over it, and it was hardly surprising it made in the Belgian chart and the Top 10 in several other countries . The only ABBA albums that didn't have at least one song containing male lead vocals were "ABBA-The Album" and "Super Trouper", and oddly enough these were among ABBA's best selling albums.

Does Your Mother Know was released in April 1979 as the second single from ABBA’s sixth studio album titled Voulez-Vous. Björn Ulvaeus sang lead vocals on this track. Contrary to popular belief, this song isn’t the only ABBA single to not feature the lead vocals of the two female members of the group (Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog)
Unlike many other ABBA songs, ‘Does Your Mother Know’ has not been widely covered since, but its appearance on the Voulez-Vous album and its release during one of the band’s most prolific years make it one of their best-loved songs. The 40th anniversary of Voulez-Vous is being celebrated with a 2LP half-speed mastered reissue, a 7 singles box set and a collection of standalone picture discs. Does Your Mother Know’ was not a N. Hit in Germany. it was ABBA’s smallest German Hit in a long time. It got no higher than N. 0 there. As Good As New’ would have been a far bigger Global Hit off the ‘Voulez Vous’ Album. A certain UK & German N.Reply.
