    Question Favorite A-ha song?

    Hey Y'all,

    Who could forget this super group from the 80's? I know their success here in the US was limited, but they had some great songs that never got played here. Which song was your favorite?

    I had to vote for "The Sun Always Shines On TV"... one of those great songs that never gets played on the radio anywhere. I was listening to my cassette of "Hunting High and Low" a few months back, and I think I played "The Sun Always Shines On TV" about four times in a row...

    "The sun always shine on TV" I'm so sick of "Take on me". I can always tell when I have a new listener to the 80's Rewind because "Take on me" is the song they always request.

    you're dispicable!

    Take on me

    Great song, even better video!

    My all time favourite A-ha song was off their 1990 album "Crying in the rain".

    I voted for "The Sun Always Shines On T.V.", I like this song so much, "Take On Me" came in a close second!

    I am a major a-ha fan. Their greatest hits album, 'Headlines and Deadlines' is awesome. My favorite is Crying In The Rain, followed by Move to Memphis and Train Of Thought. Of the one's listed, Hunting High And Low is the best.

    "Living a Boy's Adventure Tale" is by far my favorite song of A-Ha's. "Blue Sky" is my second favorite followed by "Cry Wolf"

    I went with Hunting High & Low. Always a favorite of mine. Love the vocals on that song.

    Tough one, Trixter...since Ive never heard a bad song from A-ha, at least not during the 80s.

    "Ive Been Losing You" is my absolute favourite, like the whole "Scoundrel Days"-album.

    For all others who only know "Take On Me"...leech your favourite P2P-program until the harddrive is bursting, or better, get the albums!

    Soo many great songs from A-ha through the years - it's hard to pick, if not impossible Did manage to vote for Hunting High & Low, though, but it really could have been any of those up there.

    One of the greatest albums, though, is Scoundrel Days. The title track is really awesome and powerful. And btw. I'm going to a concert with them i June - gonna be great

    Take On Me is the only A-Ha song I guess I've ever heard.

    I voted for "The Sun Always Shines On TV". As good as "Take On Me" was a bit simple and I felt that "The Sun Always Shines On TV" was better musically and lyrically.
