Morten Harket (born 14 September 1959) is best known as the lead singer of the Norwegian synthpop / rock band A-ha, which released nine studio albums and topped the charts in several countries after their breakthrough hit “Take on Me” in 1985. A-ha disbanded in 2010. Harket has also released four solo albums. Before joining A-ha in 1982, Harket appeared on the Oslo club scene as the singer for blues outfit Souldier Blue.
A-Ha was one of the bands I obsessed over in my youth which probably says a little too much about my age, although I was still in school of course!
