       Pal Waaktaar and Magne Furuholmen, formerly of Bridges formed a-ha in the early '80s. Morten Harket joined the duo, and they left for the now 'legendary London flat' (so called because of its state of disrepair) to make it. By late 1983 they had achieved part of that goal by signing to WEA. "Take on Me" took three times to become a hit in the UK, eventually hitting #2 in November 1985. Going one better in the U.S. mainly due to the wide exposure of its stunning video on MTV, which fused animation with real-life action, their only further hit there was "The Sun Always Shines on T.V." which became a UK number one in early '86 helping take the album Hunting High and Low to the Top Ten.

       Mostly an album of synth-pop, the press were quick to dismiss them as a teeny bop sensation; however, there was more to a-ha than met the ear in Waaktaar's writing and a matured effort Scoundrel Days, which was released in October, 1986.

       More focused, it had a stronger band feel thanks to live drumming displayed to great lengths on "The Swing of Things and lead single "I've Been Losing You" -- a shock to critics at the time. Further striking imagery accompanied "Cry Wolf." After a world tour, a-ha supplied the soundtrack to the James Bond flick The Living Daylights. A remix appeared on their third album, Stay on These Roads, in 1988. Considered lackluster, Stay on These Roads did feature some interesting lyrics in "Blood That Moves the Body," regarding the over-intense affection the Japanese had for popular icons in their kamikaze-like suicides. On a lighter note, one of the famous quotes of this period came from Waaktaar: commenting on Def Leppard's success with Hysteria, he scoffed that a-ha were more rock & roll! In 1990, a-ha were commended by the Everly Brothers for their rendition of "Crying in the Rain" from their fourth album, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, which was largely ignored in the U.K. due to a shift in interests towards dance and Manchester scene. 1993 heralded some much needed new blood in the U2 terrain of "Dark Is the Night" from the Memorial Beach album. Following the unfortunate lack of success following Memorial Beach, Furuholmen retreated into the art world while Waaktaar released the album Mary Is Coming with his new band Savoy. Seven years after the release of Memorial Beach, a-ha issued Minor Earth Major Sky in summer 2000. Lifelines from 2002 sold well in Europe and was followed by a lengthy tour, documented on the live album How Can I Sleep With Your Voice in My Head, which was released in 2003. A year later the band celebrated their 20th anniversary by releasing Singles 1984-2004, a collection that would put them back on the U.K. Top 20 Albums chart. In July of 2005 the band performed in Berlin as part of the massive worldwide event Live8. In November they released the new album Analogue. It was supported by a worldwide tour that included gigs in Russia and a festival in Chile.
review from allmusic.com

      a-ha, to grupa muzyczna wykonująca pop będący wypadkową stylów rock, synth pop oraz new wave. Powstała w Norwegii 1982 roku z inicjatywy wokalisty Mortena Harketa, znanego jako Pål Waaktaar gitarzysty Paula Waaktaar-Savoya oraz instrumentalisty klawiszowca Magne Furuholmena.

       Niedługo po powstaniu grupy muzycy przeprowadzili się do Londynu co umożliwiło im rozwój muzyczny oraz zaowocowało w krótkim czasie znaczną popularnością w USA i Wielkiej Brytanii. Zespół po pasmie sukcesów w latach 80. XX wieku, głównie za sprawą pochodzącego z albumu Hunting High and Low singla pt. Take on Me (1984), w wyniku jej spadku pod koniec lat 90. zakończył działalność (1994 rok). Reaktywowana w 1998 roku w niezmienionym składzie funkcjonuje do dziś. źródło:pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-ha
