Morten Harket 1959-2009

…and beyond, I hope. But at least I got your attention.

Yes, Morten Harket, lead singer of Norwegian synth-pop supergroup a-ha turns 50 today. And what better way to mark the occasion on 6000 miles… that the ground-breakingly brilliant video for their 1985 hit, Take on Me:

Amazing to think that this was 24 years ago and that a-ha are still going strong, having just released their ninth studio album.  I don’t mind admitting that I’ve been a huge fan from those early days and still love their music today.

Happy Birthday, Morten.

  1. Dee > That’s quite cool. It has been mine in the past, but I’ve recently headed for Royksopp’s “Only This Moment” (thus at least maintaining the Scandinavian theme).

  2. I saw him on telly recently, along with the recent of the band, and did think “oh, he’s not aged as well as I had expected”, completely forgetting he was hitting 50 this year!

    I’m a big fan of Royksopp too… it’s “so easy” 😀

  3. Unbelievable! Morten is ageless. He just gets better and better and better in time….. more beautiful than ever. 🙂
