Mastering ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!”

Today, we’re diving into the iconic song “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” by the legendary band, ABBA. This tune highlights a special aspect of vocal technique, the use of the mixed vocal register, a blend of chest and head voice that results in a fuller, more powerful sound without strain. In addition to “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!”, the mixed vocal register is also prominent in popular songs like Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” or Bruno Mars’ “Grenade”.

To achieve this powerful sound, consult this Voice Registers article and apply the insights to boost your performance. Here’s a Mixed Voice video tutorial to give you a practical demonstration.

Before jumping straight into the song, determine your vocal range by using our Vocal Range Test. This will help you further understand your vocal capabilities and tailor the song to your voice using the correct key.

Next, use the Vocal Pitch Monitor tool as you sing along to ABBA’s song. It’ll show you in ‘live’ mode which notes you’re hitting and can provide useful real-time feedback on your accuracy.

Focus on proper breath support and maintaining an open mouth & throat to avoid any constriction during singing. The correct posture is also a key component to successful performance.

Last but not least, be authentic and connect emotionally with the song. The combination of technique and emotion is what truly brings music to life.
