Man, I can’t believe we slept on a-ha throughout the 80’s. I was listening to some select songs from them and I can see why Europe and especially their home country loves these guys, their music is seriously legit. Their other songs that didn’t become hits are really great synthpop with well constructed melodies and great singing and while the writing and lyrics are clumsy, they do hold some weight. I vastly prefer songs like The Sun Always Shine On TV, Cry Wolf, their cover of Crying In The Rain and Summer Moved On more than their biggest hit Take On Me. I mea, if we made bands like Duran Duran and Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark into superstars in the US, then it should’ve happen to these guys.
