ABBA songs are back on charts

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The stage appears to be set for at least a modest ABBA resurgence with the arrival of the film version of the musical "Mamma Mia!" opening Friday. The soundtrack album has jumped into the Top 10 of the national sales chart even without a movie audience primed to lap it up: It sold 48,000 copies and enters at No. 7.

Beck, meanwhile, lands at No. 4 with "Modern Guilt," the top new arrival during a week in which Lil Wayne, Coldplay and the "Camp Rock" soundtrack all held steady in the top three slots. Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III" is at No. 1 for a third week with sales of 125,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
