A-ha on their wild pop lives: ‘Books and bickering – those were our excesses’

  • “Patience,” says A-ha frontman Morten Harket. “That’s what I’ve learnt from nearly 40 years in the music industry. It takes patience to wait for the songs to come, to wait in studios, in airports, backstage…” He waited, too, for the critics to see beyond his chiselled cheekbones and Viking physique to appreciate the hard graft and passion that the Norwegian New Wave trio put into the 1980s hits Take On Me, The Sun Always Shines on TV and Hunting High and Low.
