YouTube FEATURE of The Day

a-ha is a band from Norway. They are the best selling Norwegian band around the world with a total of 75 million albums and singles sold. They rose to fame during the 1980s, but continued to be globally successful in the 1990s and 2000s. The trio, composed of lead vocalist Morten Harket, guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (Pål Waaktaar until his marriage in 1994) and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, formed in 1982.

The origin of the name "a-ha" comes from the lyrics of an early song ("Nothing To It"). After checking dictionaries in several languages, they found out that "a-ha" was an international way of expressing recognition, with positive connotations. It was short, easy to say and unusual.Back in the 80s when I first discovered a-ha they were the ultimate band lah. This YouTube feature is a collection of their greatest hit.
