Chess is a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, formerly of ABBA. Chess is the story of a love triangle between two grandmasters – one American, one Russian – and a woman serves as a manager to one of the players but falls in love with the other. The musical was inspired by some of the political machinations surrounding the 1972 Fischer-Spassky World Championship match.
A single from the album, “One Night In Bangkok”, performed by Murray Head with Anders Glenmark became a worldwide smash and reached No.3 on Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US. Other songs that gained significant popularity included I Know Him So Well (a #1 hit in the UK), Nobody’s Side, The Arbiter, and Pity the Child.
