A-Ha - So...maybe you have heard of this group by means of Take On Me....well...i will not make an essay here you have wikipedia, but heres what Adam Clayton of U2 said..."A-ha was always kind of a misunderstood band in my ears. They were perceived as a teenage group for girls, but in reality a very creative band."...

They went from synthpop to Rock style in the 90s...the style they have explored in smaller scale in their earlier record (Scoundrel Days) and i think there are few songs the Cure Fans might like by them anyway im posting 3 of these...i would also like to add that The Doors were big inspiration for A-Ha
