    13.tried my imagination, but I was disturbed

    14.Making love to you was never second best

    15.I've got to, run away from the pain you drive into the heart of me

    16.So wild, so free, So far from me. You're all I want, my fantasy

    17.If you got the money honey we got your disease

    18.And mama always told me be careful what you do, don't go around breaking young girls' hearts

    19.My baby may not be rich, he's watchin every dime

    20.Take your-passion, and make it happen

    21.I think they got the alias, that you been livin under

    22.had a premonition that he shouldn't of gone alone

    25.Don't wanna be a girl like that, do you wanna see a grown man cry?

    26.Somebodies callin after somebody, somebody turns the corner out of sight. Lookin for somebody, somewhere in the night

    27.A week without you, but I forget, two weeks without you and I still haven't gotten over you yet

    28.Strange voices are saying, ah what did they say? Things. I can't understand

    29.Been workin, so hard. I'm punchin, my card

    30.I know just how to whisper, and I know Just how to cry

    31.I was a high school loser never made it with a lady 'til the boys told me somethin I missed

    32.I knew right from the beginning, that you would end up winnin', I knew right from the start, you'd put an arrow through my heart

    33.You got to roll with the punches to get to what's real

    34.Just a look at that girl with the lights comin up in her eyes

    35.It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, it's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

    36.And heart to heart you win, if ya survive

    37.Play the guitar on the MTV

    40.You're givin me the chills baby please baby don't

    41.I knew he must a been about seventeen

    42.With the touch of a velvet glove

    43.It's just another Sunday, in a tired old street

    44.Slight of hand and a twist of fate, on a bed of nails
    she makes me wait

    45.She's so fine, she's all mine, the girl is all right!

    46.And your friends don't dance and if they don't dance well they're no friends of mine

    47.Your feet are going to be on the ground, your head is
    there to move you around

    48.Oceans apart, day after day, and I slowly go insane

    49.Guess I should a known by the way you parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last

    50.You're all the things I've got to remember

    51.need some company, a guardian angel, to keep me warm when the cold winds blow

    52.Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

    53.So many times, it happens too fast, you trade your
    passion for glory

    54.Nations go to war over women like you, it's just a form of appreciation

    55.Before I put another notch in my lipstick case You better make sure you put me in my place!

    56.You tell me that you want me, you tell me that you need me, you tell me that you love me, and I know that
    I'm right cause I hear it in the night.

    57.I got a picture of you- ahh-ha-ahh-ha-ah-ah woh-oh-woh-oh

    58.I, I was standing, you were there

    59.Every claim you stake I'll be watching you

    60.Shoot me like a rocket into space!

    61.This is the world we live in, and these are the hands were given

    62.Don't wish it away, don't look at it like this forever

    63.And even though I wander, I'm keepin you in sight, you're a candle in the wind on a cold dark winters night

    64.If you say goodbye to me tonight, there will still be music left to write

    65.Oh yeah I, just wanna watch the girls go by

    66.I'll be alone, dancin, you know it baby

    67.And you may say to yourself, My god, what have I done?

    68.scratches his head and does his best James Dean

    69.Oh thinkin about all our younger years, it was only you and me, we were young and wild and free

    70.Like a knight in shining armor, from a long time ago

    71.Stop walking down my street. Who do you expect to meet?

    72.I've been meaning to tell you, I've got this feeling that won't subside

    73.Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

    74.I had a friend was a big baseball player, back in high

    75.See yourself, give your freewill a chance, you've got to work to succeed

    76.One likes to believe in the freedom of music

    77.Heirs of the cold war, tbat's what we've become.Inherited troubles, I'm mentally numb.

    78.Kid can't read at seventeen, the words he knows are all obscene but, it's all right

    79.Sailed away to China, in a little row boat to find ya, you said you had to get your laundry done

    80.I never believed in things that I couldn't see, I said if I can feel it, how could it be

    81.Don't take money, don't take fame, don't need no credit card to ride this train

    82.The school bell rings, you know it's my cue, I'm gonna meet the boys on floor number two

    83.I never meant to be so bad to you. One thing I said that I would never do

    84.Put me in coach, I'm ready to play, today

    85.Just like the white wing dove sings a song, sounds like she's singing

    86.So let's sink another drink, cause it'll give me time to think

    87.I need fifty dollars to make you holler

    88.I said mom this shirt is plaid with a butterfly collar

    89.Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down

    90.Can make it, I know I can. You broke the boy in me, but you won't break the man

    91.And the best thing you've ever done for me is to help me take my life less seriously, it's only life after all

    92.I've had the blues, the reds and the pinks

    93.At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet and a freight train running through the middle of my head

    94.I'm lying in the rain, but I never wave bye bye, but I try

    95.Don't want no Captain Crunch don't want no raisin bran

    96.I can See the sun in Win-ter-time

    97.Every time I think of you, I always catch my breath

    98.And then the conversation turned, until the sun went down

    99.Who's gonna block your ears, when you scream?

    100.Listen up everybody if you wanna take a chance

    101.I touch you once, I touch you twice

    102.All the cops in the donut Shop say way-o way-o

    103.You are so hard to read, you play hide n seek with your true intentions

    104.She stepped off the bus, out into the City street

    105.You do the boom boom into lay heart, You set my soul sky high when your lovin starts

    106.You want a Piece of my heart, you better start from the start. You wanna be in the show, come on baby lets go!

    107.I think of you and let it go

    108.I'll be back when I found my fears, and I'll see you again in a thousand years

    109.I can wait another day, until I call you

    110.When I'm lost at sea, I hear your voice and it carries me

    111.Another kiss, and you'll be mine, one track mind!

    112.If you want to taste my kisses in the night then,

    113.I was born to love you, but I will never be free, you'll always be a part of me

    114.There doesn't seem to be anyone around

    115.Speed so fast, felt like I was drunk

    116.They see your every move

    117.No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away

    118.An invisible man sleepin' in your bed...

    119.The moon. Beautiful. The sun. Even more beautiful

    120.It's poetry in motion when she turned her eyes to me

    121.Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dream

    122.The phone rings in the middle of the night, my father yells, 'what you gonna do with your life?'

    123.Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to get used by you.

    124.By order of the prophet, we ban that boogie sound.

    125.I know a guy who's tough but sweet. He's so fine, he can't be beat.

  • A-Ha's gotten hold of my Heart!

    20 avr. 2007, 9h54m

    And yet another free space to talk about my favorite band..now how could I possibly NOT?

    My favorite tracks starting from their 2005 album Analogue because that is when I first rediscovered Morten, Magne & Paul & fell in love with a-ha!

    Analogue
    1. A FINE BLUE LINE~nostalgic, thoughtful, heartbreakingly gorgeous..loved it at first listen :)
    2. ANALOGUE~a-ha at their rockiest..sweeeet!
    3. THE SUMMERS OF OUR YOUTH~M&M's virgin duet...Magne takes me back to my childhood & Morten's soaring chorus takes my breath away!
    Of the 8 studio albums this was my No.1 until overtaken by Lifelines quite recently...hang on...that doesnt sound quite right...maybe they are tied...but Lifelines has a slight edge I think due to the fact that it contains Time & Again and Did Anyone Approach You which happen to be right up there on my to die for list....but then again I really do love these 3 up there too hmmmmm...but but but the video for DAAY OMG it just blows me away!!! That beat! That Song! Argggh! :/ Suffice to say I just adore both! :o)

    Singles 1984-2004
    SHAPES THAT GO TOGETHER~ "I walked 25 miles to hold ya..just to find you've moved away!" upbeat, catchy, cute!


    Lifelines
    1. TIME & AGAIN~just close your eyes & imagine...a moonlit walk on the beach with the wind in your hair...absolute perfection!
    2. LIFELINES~fully deserving to be the title track... lush, dreamy, introspective & dramatic!
    3. DID ANYONE APPROACH YOU~when I first saw this video & heard Morten speaksing those first few fabulous lines & Paul's opening guitar OMG that was IT! I was hooked & i knew i was gonna be an a-ha fan for life! *ABSOLUTE MOST FAVORITE VIDEO OF ALL* luv luv luv!

    4. SOLACE~ tied with Time & Again actually...a-ha weaves their magic again..running out of platitudes soon...just listen & weep & ache at the beauty that is a-ha!Now that I think about it..Keane's She Has No Time must have taken a leaf out of this...
    5. CANNOT HIDE~One of a-ha's sexiest tunes!I must confess.. on this tune it is not Morten's voice that captivates me as usual but rather the last few secs of Magne muttering away when Morten orders him to "speak french to me, baby!" OoohLaLa!

    Minor Earth Major Sky
    1. I WISH I CARED~another lovely atmospheric piece... right from the get go this song just draws me in ...utter blisssss!
    2. SUMMER MOVED ON~ Take a deep breath with Morten as he dives into that wonderful record holding long note on "just one thing, left to assssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssk..."
    3. VELVET~ smoooooooth! Whats NOT to like? 'nuff said! Just watch the video as a-ha explores their urmm...darker side...a prelude to Celice I suppose? :o


    Memorial Beach
    I just started listening to the lesser known tracks on MB & so far the album has surprised me... and in a good way too! as to its consistency...something a-ha is not famed for as there are usually a few stand-out tunes on all their albums & some HUH?? ones rather than A-HA! Certainly the "rockiest" album by far & according to a write-up by Jan Omdahl.."The songs on the album might be good enough.The problem seemed to be that the band's heart wasnt in it. That and the fact that a-ha just wasnt a rock band." Having read this & a few other reviews i was prepared Not to like this album...but its really growing on me now!:o a-ha may not have wanted to travel down this road but MB certainly is a different AND credible effort from the guys & I for one am beginning to appreciate it on its own merit. Outright fave tracks:-
    1. DARK IS THE NIGHT
    2. ANGEL IN THE SNOW
    Other tracks worth a mention are LOCUST, COLD AS STONE, LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER, MEMORIAL BEACH..in fact the whole album is pretty darn good!;) I get that a-ha is not a rock group but boy can they rock your socks off and then some! Its too bad that this album will never see the light of day again otherwise it might just win over some unbelievers!

    HEY YOU!!Yes I am talking to you reading this.. of course I am not talking to myself...I'm not daft..You there! If you arent an a-ha fan yet...what are you waiting for??? Quit listening to all that rap hiphop trash..well if you're a fan of that...what the h*ll are you doing here??

    Now if you're looking for some seriously good music you've come to the right place...have a listen to a-ha..one of the most talented under the radar feel good bands to grace this century evahhh! I dont care if you love Take On Me cos I dont! Well at least you've heard of it.. I think the overzeolous popularity of that song does this great band a severe injustice! Kinda like when I say James Blunt? I get You're Beautiful! argh!

    Anyway back to a-ha...their new album is slated to be out later this year... so get into the swing of things with their Singles album or Analogue...go on then! *nudge* poke* wink* You can thank me later!

    Stay on this road with me as I continue my ahaventure another day....I need to look for 300 more different ways to say beautiful, captivating, breathtaking, majestic, soothing, awesome...well you get the general idea here dontcha?

    Cheers & Have an A-HA Day!
