    Hunting Hugh And Low. A great ballad and a cool video as well. I always liked Living A Boy's Adventure Tale as well. Those two songs alone makes the Hunting High And Low album fantastic.

    Harkett,

    I went to an a-ha concert back in 1985. It was kind of a funny scene, we were the only guys in site as the whole audience was filled with girls between the age of 10-13. Probably like a Backstreet Boys concert would be. Scoundrel Days was a good album. I liked all the songs except 'Manthattan Skyline' which eventually grew on me. I don't understand how a-ha didn't continue to have success in the USA.

    Depeche Moderator,

    I liked 'Living A Boy's Adventure Tale' also, that whole first album was great.

    Greenway88,

    I went and saw them in Norway March 2001, and I think the percentage was around 40/60, still in the girls favour though, but better than could have been "feared"

    As I understand it, they are actually planning to re-enter the US market with the new album. If you wanna check it out, go to http://www.a-ha.com/ - there you'll find all the info you need.

    Cheers

    Went with "Take on Me". It is the only song I am familiar with. The video for the song is cool as well. Can't imagine what it would be like shifting back-and-forth from real-life character to comic-book character

    Lightbulb Cry Wolf

    Cry Wolf because it's so powerful and rock felt.
    Unavailable choice would be Train Of Thought though I have not heard the original.
    Wait, I'll sample it right now.

    That poll ist one of the best! I was the biggest a-ha fan when i was a teenager and "The sun always shines on TV" was the song that made me fall for them. There are still shivers running down my spine when i hear the first tones played unexpactedly on the radio or in a club.

    If only they'd play this song on the radio and clubs here! The usual "Take On Me" plays but my #1 choice is "The Sun Always Shines On TV". It's just so majestic. Another song I play loud in my car. My only complaint is the song's extended version has and added out-of-place percussion.

    Question who knew?

    Aha had more than one song? Had I heard more than "Take On Me" I would probably like them more. I never need to hear that song again (1,000 a year is enough).

    My favorite song from a-ha was the Living Daylights from the James Bond movie. I voted for other then. I have heard that the new cd is really good too. I have not seen it for sale here in the USA yet.

    You know, I am going to have to vote for the song, "Take on Me." That is the only song that I know from that band.
