Take on me Video
The third version of the song Take on me of
a-ha was released in 1985 together with the video and was very successful all
over the world.
After an successful music career and 6 albums (watch discography) - including the titeltrack of
the James Bond movie The living daylights and the best-of-album The
hits of a-ha - it begun in 1993 to be a little bit more quit about a-ha.
Pål Waaktaar Savoy was more involed in his band
Savoy at this time and also the vocalist
of a-ha Morten Harket recorded some soloalbums,
partly in norwegian, and did some collaborations with other artists. Magne
Furuholmen took the time to turn to his secound passion - the painting. But
finally he composed together with Kjetil Bjerkestrand under the name
Timersound some soundtracks.
In the year 2000 a-ha have a great comeback. Their 7th
album Minor earth, major sky was released and the first single Summer
moved on was really successful in the charts.

The concerts on their tour in november 2000 in Japan and
Germany were sold out and also the festivals in 2001 where a-ha played as
headliner around Europe were an amazing success for a-ha.

worked on the album together with a-ha, for example Clive Langer & Alan
Winstanley (who worked already with Madness, Morrissey) and Stephen Hague (New

Ian Caple and Tore Johanssonan (The Cardigans).
