A-HA – You Are The One.

descărcare (1)Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released nine studio albums and topped the charts in several countries after their breakthrough hit “Take on Me” in 1985.A-ha disbanded in 2010. Harket has also released five solo albums. Before joining A-ha in 1982, Harket had appeared on the Oslo club scene as the singer for blues outfit Soldier Blue. The trio, composed of lead vocalist Harket, guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (Pål Waaktaar until his marriage in 1991), and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, formed in 1982, and left Norway for London in order to make a career in the music business. They chose the studio of musician, producer, and soon-to-be-manager, John Ratcliff, because it had a Space Invaders machine. John Ratcliff introduced the boys to his manager, Terry Slater, and, after a few meetings, A-ha had two managers. Terry Slater and John Ratcliff together formed T.J. Management. Ratcliff dealt with all the technical and musical aspects; Slater was the international business manager and liaison to Warner Brothers’ head office.The band says the name A-ha comes from a title Paul contemplated giving to a song; he was dithering between the title “A-ha” and “A-hem”. Morten was looking through Paul’s notebook, and came across the name, which he liked, and immediately decided that was the right name.
