3. "No more carefree laughter..."

Answer: Knowing Me Knowing You

The song was released in 1977 as their third single from the album "Arrival". Much like "The Winner Takes It All", the song is about a break-up. It was written when both relationships in the group were strained, although it is not specifically about either couple.
