"The Day Before You Came" is a song recorded and released by Swedish pop group ABBA, their second longest (after "Eagle") at almost six minutes in length. It was originally released in 1982 as both a single and a track on the compilation album The Singles: The First Ten Years. Although it was the final ABBA recording until 2018 (over 35 years later), the song released as their final widely released single was "Under Attack", which also featured on the singles compilation album.
The bridge seen in the video clip is the Årstabron bridge, located in the southern part of Stockholm. Within the context of the music video, the train on the bridge actually goes in the wrong direction. In the clip, Agnetha waits at Tumba station for the train and ends up in the city. However, in reality the train seen on the bridge goes from the city to Tumba. The parts of the video featuring all the members of ABBA were filmed at the China Theatre in Stockholm, nearby the Polar Music offices located in Berzelii Park. There were several photo sessions done during filming at the theatre. One of them, known as "the green session", was taken in the theatre's foyer.
