• Just to say, I really liked this puzzle! As soon as I realised what was going on (76 was my aha moment) I had to stop midway through brushing my teeth and pick up a laptop to put it all down! A proper buzz - thank you :) – Stiv Aug 5 '20 at 8:09
• PS Think there's one tiny typo in the last line (the 'n' should be a 't') – Stiv Aug 5 '20 at 8:09
• @Stiv Nice job solving this one! I was worried it would be too difficult. Thanks for the kudos, and good catch on the tiny typo (I'll leave it there for posterity). – FlanMan Aug 5 '20 at 15:31

SWEDEN

Because each line represents:

The first letters of words (plus the punctuation) in the opening line of a song by Swedish pop superstars, ABBA. The number is the year the song was released.

75 Wathd,tsshtf

Where are those happy days, they seem so hard to find = SOS (1975)

74 M,m,aWNds

My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender = WATERLOO (1974)

77 Tcfffa,nIuts

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell = EAGLE (1977)

76 O,ycd,ycj

Oh, you can dance, you can jive = DANCING QUEEN (1976)

80 Yh,ys,ys

You hate, you scream, you swear = ELAINE (1980)

73 Edinmohwtto

Every day in [the] morning on her way to the office = NINA, PRETTY BALLERINA (1973)

One final step:

Take the initial letters of the song titles, and sure enough they spell SWEDEN!

• Really?! Somebody chose to downvote a correct and perfectly explained answer, with no explanation?! That just seems spiteful... What a waste. – Stiv Aug 5 '20 at 16:54
