Overview

Released not long after A-Ha's twentieth anniversary, Singles 1984-2004 rounds up 19 of the group's A-sides, beginning with 1985's international number one hit single "Take on Me" and concluding with 2002's "Lifelines." In the U.S., A-Ha are often seen as the quintessential MTV-driven new wave one-hit wonder -- the pen-and-ink animation of "Take on Me" defining an era -- but the group had a long, fruitful career as hitmakers in Europe, and this collection presents an excellent overview of that career, containing such continental smashes as "The Sun Always Shines on TV," "Hunting High and Low," "I've Been Losing You," "Cry Wolf," "The Living Daylights," "Stay on These Roads," "Crying in the Rain," "Summer Moved On," and "Forever Not Yours." It may not be enough to win over skeptics but it's more than enough to prove that A-Ha were not one-hit wonders, and it will surely satisfy anybody who is wanting a solid collection of their biggest hit singles.
