Number Ones is a compilation album of recordings by Swedish pop group ABBA, released by the Universal Music Group in 2006.

Whereas ABBA Gold had pulled together 19 of ABBA's biggest hits and most familiar songs, Number Ones was a variation on this concept, collecting 18 tracks that were #1 hits in many of the countries where ABBA were successful. In the end, only three tracks from ABBA Gold did not make the cut: "Does Your Mother Know", "Lay All Your Love On Me" & "Thank You For The Music".

In the UK, the track list included the full length version of "Summer Night City" (originally released on the Thank You For The Music box set) and an additional track "Ring Ring", oddly never a big hit in that territory.

A limited edition, also released in the UK, included a bonus disc with 12 tracks from ABBA's #1 albums.

In Taiwan, a hidden track follows I Have A Dream. This hidden track, titled ABBA Remix and running for 3.31, is a medley of the choruses of the 18 songs on the CD.
