The song “Keep an Eye on Dan” by ABBA is a breakup song. It was written by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, sung by Agnetha Faltskog and Frida Lyngstad. It was released on 5 November 2021, from their album Voyage.
ABBA’s breakup song is a dime a dozen, but this song offers a slightly different take. While most breakup songs focus on the pain of being separated from a loved one, this song instead offers an insight into the other side of the equation. The narrator is worried about the fact that her ex-husband is with her son, Dan. She thinks that he is so happy with his dad that he has forgotten the importance of their relationship.
Her husband may be a drug addict, and she is concerned that he will get high on drugs and harm their child. She is also worried about the fact that her ex-husband might be lying about her and her son.
She is also a single mother and worries that she will not be able to provide the care her son needs when she is gone. She is trying to encourage her ex-husband to be responsible for their son and make sure he is safe when he is away.
The song is a sad song. It reminds me of a friend of mine who had cancer and was only told about her death by her friends. She was so frightened about it that she committed suicide.
