Top Ten Best A-ha Songs

The Top Ten

Take On Me

The undisputed number one song from a-ha. Absolutely mesmerizing. The symbol of eighties music.

I think that aha is a Brilliant pop group. Also take on me is a magical song. It rocks my world. Always and forever. Worth listening to because the 1980's is a Brilliant era for music. Chris mcbride.

Synthpop of the highest quality with soaring vocals by morton harkel. That falsetto just glorifies the song.

The only song worth listening to by this band. The best is great, and it really gives you the 80s feel.

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.

A ha popular in world wide

Best b side ever.

The Sun Always Shines On T.V. The Sun Always Shines On T.V. Cover Art

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

A great song! Never get tired of hearing it!

Stay on These Roads Stay on These Roads Cover Art

Sees the boys at their moody best with lyrics that tell a sad, hopeful story.

Aha rocks my world forever Darkstorm!

I will listen to aha 4-Evs and always

A ha forever

Hunting High and Low

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...

This is "the" song. Best of all time.

I've Been Losing You

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

Morten Harket has the best voice

My favourite. Still sounds as fresh as the day it was released.

Love the edgy lyrics and atmosphere. I can see why they got to do a Bond theme.

The Living Daylights The Living Daylights Cover Art

Amazing The Theme To James Bond The Living Daylights

One of the most definitive bond songs and a-ha at their very best, it should at least be at the top 5... Period

Love This Song I think it should be number 3 great bond song should be higher great tune amazing song best of all them bigger than the rest

More souvenirS with My friends...

Crying in the Rain Crying in the Rain Cover Art

I love you all from Mongolia

I love this beautiful song

Ich liebe diesen Song

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.

Scoundrel Days Scoundrel Days Cover Art

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.

This, in my opinion, this a timeless classic. Love all the a-ha songs listed but this just pips the rest to the post for me. Awesome

This and The Swing of Things are my favorites

Cry Wolf Cry Wolf Cover Art

Catchiest song of all time! I just had to vote for it, it's way too low!

Love so much the instrumentals and Morten's speech

Cry wolf should be in top 5. I don't know who voted for this top 5, girls?

This my favorite a-ha song from the 80s

The Contenders

When I sing this song it makes me cry. This is my third favorite a-ha song from the 80s

A wonderful sad song

Such a beautiful song. My favorite.

Summer Moved On

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 it

Just a fantastic song from a great album.

Dark Is the Night For All

The most moving of songs.So beautiful and sad.

Just a beautiful song. Love Morten in this video.

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.

Angel in the Snow Angel in the Snow Cover Art

Beautiful song with the video

My moms favorite.

Makes me feel crying, specially with the video I love the ice cubes falling on the guitarre

Lifelines Lifelines Cover Art

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!

Just wonderful. Unfortunately, almost completely unknown in North America...

My dad would listen to this song until he'd die.

Should be in the top 3. Absolutely beautiful

Manhattan Skyline Manhattan Skyline Cover Art

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

One of the best...out of so many best! This one is beautiful and then goes into a rock sound and then slow again! Who does this any better than a-ha?!

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!

East of the Sun East of the Sun Cover Art

A special great song

Great song, love the dark and deel Side of iT.

The NRK studio version is absolutely wonderful!

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


Amazing song! Should be top 10 ;P

In my opinion must be a 3 or 2

Like it too much

Love this song!

Foot of the Mountain Foot of the Mountain Cover Art

Wonderful song really has energy to it. I always dream when I hear it I could live at the foot of the Mountain with Morten.

Love this song gorgeous chorus and wouldn't we all genuinely love to go there with aha

It sounds very nice! Just didn't know that a-ha is still releasing beautiful music until now!

Very beautiful song

The Swing of Things The Swing of Things Cover Art

Definitely their best overall song. Way more sophisticated musically than 'Take on Me,' and much better lyrically as well.

My absolute one and only! I love this song. One of the most intensive songs they had ever made. This is the song I will ever keep in mind when I think of a-ha! Who needs 'Take on me'?

An absolute Masterpiece, vastly under-rated. Genius lyrics and the live versions are a genius symphony. My all time favourite song ever.

I love the lyrics and the music of this song! It's so intense and emotional... I can listen to it over and over again...

Forever Not Yours Forever Not Yours Cover Art

Best song from 2000's.

Crest of a wave very catchy

Written by Morten but sounds like a Pål Waaktar original

Touchy! Touchy! Cover Art

This song is one of the best aha songs I've ever heard. It has everything Take On Me has and more. It's upbeat and happy. This song should be #2 (under lifelines).

People seem to make fun of this one, but it really is so good and Morten helped to write it! It's so catchy!

So special song with the voice and instrumental riffs

Minor Earth, Major Sky Minor Earth, Major Sky Cover Art

Best song of A Ha

The whole album is exceptional and this track is mindblowing I have to say this band is so underrated and people have not appreciated them for the phenomenal songwriting

Early Morning Early Morning Cover Art

Retro-techno music universal, my a-ha favorite song, and I bought all their records once on sell. Early morning yeah!

Train of Thought

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.

27! Your having a laugh this is a brilliant song
