One Hit Wonders: a-ha — Take on me from Hunting High and Low

For the next four podcast episodes we will be reviewing what are considered to be one-hit wonders. Member Darren Scott started off by choosing a-ha. a-ha is often considered a one-hit wonder, largely due to the immense success of their debut single “Take on Me.” The song reached number one in the United States and several other countries in 1985, and its innovative music video became an iconic part of 80s pop culture. While a-ha did have other hits in Europe, including “The Sun Always Shines on T.V.” and “Hunting High and Low,” they were unable to replicate the massive success of “Take on Me” in the US. However, the band’s overall discography is quite extensive and they have continued to release albums and tour throughout the years.

Listen along and join us for the full review and hear if this band deserves the title, or is worth an exploration of their discography.
