Top Ten Best A-ha Songsro-s
The Top TenXW
The undisputed number one song from a-ha. Absolutely mesmerizing. The symbol of eighties music.
I think that aha is one of the top Band's of the 1980's Take on me is a magical song. Filled with joy and happiness this song is a Brilliant song that is worth listening to for many years to come! Chris mcbride.
Synthpop of the highest quality with soaring vocals by morton harkel. That falsetto just glorifies the song.
It's a good song but certainly not their best.V19 Comments

I love this song with the amazing instrumental
I can't stop listening to this song
I never get tired of listening to this song, one of best songs ever.V5 Comments
This is best a-ha's song. Wonderful & Beautiful.
I love this song because it is the most romantic ballad song ever in the whole world also I have the most big crush on morten harket but the song feels like he actually likes bunty bailey.
Why is this No3 its not as good as a lot of their songsV4 Comments
Best song of A-ha for me. The Video Music is very cool too. But actually I love almost all of A-ha Songs. I am A-ha big Fans :-)
I am amazed that this song sounds just as good today in 2015 as it did in 1995. It's truly timeless. The pop synth blended with strings is beautiful, surprising and stunning. Layered into this is a choir and Morten's vocals care the icing and cherry on top. The song is quite complex but harmoniously perfect. The Sun Always Shine On T.V. is not only my favourite a-ha song, but one of my favourite songs of all time.
It is there best song it sounds fresh today and it will stand the test of time, I don't no if I am over emotional but when that song starts it blows you away unbelievable stuff man and I have lead a life
Perfect song. My favourite ever song.V19 Comments
Definitely better than the commercially successful 80's-pop-song "Take On Me" that put everyone to dance and that sadly has become, as almost always happens, the representative pennant of the group as everyone likes it (easy to listen).
"Hunting High and Low" achieves a more exquisite performance of the instruments, vocals and melody changes that indicate an early stage of maturity.
Another song that I would like to suggest is "Cold as Stone", from the album Memorial Beach (1993), that also achieves a higher level of complexity due to the maturity of the group. Obviously, not a commercial hit as it was not composed for dancing... but to listen and be penetrated by its strong melody.
Great song. Really is the best hit of A-ha! But I also like a lot "Take on me"; "Stay on these roads"; "There's never a forever thing" and "The Living Daylights".
This is the best aha song in my opinion...
Best ballad of all time ever.V10 Comments
Love This Song so so so so so so much one of thebest should be number 6 amazing love it vote this song please please love it
Love the edgy lyrics and atmosphere. I can see why they got to do a Bond theme.
My favourite. Still sounds as fresh as the day it was released.
Edgy and sexyV7 Comments
A-ha shows that they are more than just synth-pop.
The intro! The build-up! The chorus! I will never get tired of this song.
Actually, my favourite A-ha song is The Swing of Things, but its not listed here. The whole album is excellent though.
Deep tension followed by heavenly vocals!
Brilliant - an all time classic, some incredible lyrics tooV9 Comments
In my opinion Crying In The Rain is their best song for many reasons, but for me most of them are very personal and connected to my relationship with my dad, so this may sound a bit bias.
This is an ABSOLUTELY GREAT rendition of the Everly Brothers' original! Morten sang it perfectly!
Another fantastic song, love the lyrics..
Wonderful Everly Brother coverV1 Comment
Amazing The Theme To James Bond The Living Daylights - mneilan

One of the most definitive bond songs and a-ha at their very best, it should at least be at the top 5... Period
One of the best Bond songs I ever heardV4 Comments
Simple and beautiful song, should be in top 10. Catching piano part too, and the message the music brings.
This is the most beautiful song ever according to another vote on this same site
When I sing this song it makes me cry. This is my third favorite a-ha song from the 80s
A wonderful sad songV3 Comments
Catchiest song of all time! I just had to vote for it, it's way too low!
Cry wolf should be in top 5. I don't know who voted for this top 5, girls?
Love so much the instrumentals and Morten's speech
This my favorite a-ha song from the 80sV1 Comment
A very deep feeling soul touching song
Very intense and deep song. A bit underrated, but certainly among the best they have ever wrote. Synth and guitars are at its best.V1 Comment
Every their song is wonderful, but at the moment I'm just fell in love with this one...
Again)) I love to sing it! And I can say, that it is definitely good for non-professional singer)))) Someday everybody will listen to me, that's for sure! ))) Take care, friends and good luck to all of you!
It is so sad that a-ha are almost at the end of their career, but we'll always love them! )
Their second come back and one of the best songs of their career
The guitar in the beginning.I LOVE itV4 Comments
Makes me feel crying, specially with the video I love the ice cubes falling on the guitarreV2 Comments
Why this song is here you don't have brain...
Or you don't know anything about music...
Come on please vote this song this could be at no 2 at least - navinsingh22
This must be in the top 10. Morten's voice gets better in time. One of the best real music in the 21st century.
One of the best later songs and their last big hit.
In my opinion must be a 3 or 2V5 Comments
Very incredible song! Without any hesitation, everyone who listens to it will say this is one of the most beautiful songs this world has and will ever hear! It's truly unique. I think it's the only song which starts slow and breaks out into a rock chorus? (Or maybe I have not heard of much songs yet? ) Regardless that, upon first listening, that one thing surprised me about this song and it's so nice - so this song will forever be stored in my mind as long as I live!
Why is this song remarkably wonderful? We can find it in the exquisite melody/music, the deeply heart-wrenching lyrics, and Morten's ethereally expressive voice! All melded together - BAM - resulted into this musical masterpiece we've been listening to since 1986! This is real musical art in all sense!
Best song by a country mile rocking which is the real aha seriously do not let Take On Me be number 1 though I'm sure its all the Americans know
I love everything about this song! The way it starts off slow and quiet and then builds into a powerful rock chorus... Its just great!
A mix of emotional sadness and thought-provoking Rock. A mix of genres, a revolutionary product of perfectionV4 Comments
Purely evocotive and beautiful song. A song that takes me back to Norway and helps me reflect on what was a truly wonderful and moving experience. This group were without a doubt one of the best ever in the world. With a voice like Morten's how could they go wrong? Answer, they didn't!
My dad would listen to this song until he'd die.
Great song with the video of Norway landscapeV2 Comments
So special song with the voice and instrumental riffs
You just can't stop dancing with this. Simple.
One of the BEST a-ha songs ever - it's catchy, captivating and Morten's voice has this wonderfully longing sound in the chorus. every time I hear the refrain, I feel like getting up and dancing!
The top of the pops performance.
An amazing album that probably was ignored back in the day. This is the title track and is haunting and beautiful sung exquisitely by Morten
HIs voice is much deeper than his earlier albums but still incredible. I do not remember seeing much of this album.V1 Comment
