I saw this thread the other day, but it was empty, couldn't post on it
Unfortunately there was an database error right at the moment when I wanted to send the post. I don't know why just the name of the title appeared. I asked Peta to delete the thread so that I could start a new one.
I'm a fan of A-Ha too, that group means a lot for me.
You are quite young, right? How did you discover the band?
It's been a few years since they were really popular.

I am excited for any new material from a-ha in 2009.
My favourite album is also "Scoundreal Days"
I got the cassette on my 12th birthday and since then I was really a fan of the band.
Are you from the States?
On 12 September 2005 a-ha played a quickly sold out show at Irving Plaza in New York City, the band's first concert in North America since 1986. The band has not returned to North America since, nor have they released anything there since 1993.
Regarding "Take on me": It happens in every part of the world that people associate a-ha with that song. Beside this the band really still suffer for their former image as a boyband. It's just the last years that the musicjournalist seem to take them seriously and even appreciate their early work.
