"Cassandra" is a song by Swedish pop group ABBA. Recording commenced on August 2, 1982[1] and became song no. 12 as a bonus track in the 2001 re-release of the 1981 album The Visitors. The song did not reach first place on the charts but is one of the band's final songs. The album's next single is "The Day Before You Came", which became a bigger hit than "Cassandra".

The song, which had the working title of "El Paso", had the lead vocal sung by Frida. [2] The song is used with a keyboard to play one of the notes to the song and uses orchestral influences to the song and the song has also been used in More ABBA Gold and has been very famous so far.
