Endgame by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson Lyrics. 18. Epilogue: You and I/The Story of Chess by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson (Ft. Elaine Paige & Tommy Körberg) Lyrics. One Night In Bangkok by Murray Head Lyrics. Originally released as a concept album by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus with lyrics by Tim Rice, and later famously adapted into a stage musical, Chess tells the story of two chess champions from both sides of the Cold War fighting over the manager of one who has fallen in love with the other.

He co-produced the film Mamma Mia! with fellow ABBA member and close friend Benny Andersson. Björn Kristian Ulvaeus was born in Gothenburg on 25 April 1945. In 1951, he moved with his family to Västervik, Kalmar County.

Chess is a musical with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, lyrics by Tim Rice, and a book by Richard Nelson based on an idea by Rice. The story involves a politically driven, Cold War–era chess tournament between two grandmasters from America and the USSR and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

Billed as Chess in Concert, this Swedish album presents the third major recording of the musical Chess, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and lyrics by Tim Rice, which began life as a concept album in 1984 and also had an original Broadway cast recording in 1988. Those two versions were quite different, particularly because the work was altered extensively for its unsuccessful Broadway run (which followed a successful London production not commemorated with a cast album). As Rice notes in his annotations here, Chess has been produced since in both theatrical and concert versions.
