Listen to Brand-New a-ha Single "Foot Of The Mountain"

Arjanwrites_aha

The fraiche new tunes just keep on coming today.

Check out the fantastic, Keane-like new single by Norwegian pop trio a-ha. To most people stateside a-ha is just that one-hit wonder band that had an '80s smash with "Take On Me" (arguably one of the biggest songs of the '80s in fact). The reality is that a-ha never went away. The tree have continued to make great pop albums. This new single, titled "Foot Of The Mountain," is the title track of their tenth studio album. I'm glad to conclude that after all those years a-ha still delivers the goodness (and great album art).

Tom Chaplin??? lol, you must be off your rocker?? Morten is in a different class..Tom Chaplin cant hold a note for anywhere near what Morten can..you have truly suprised me with that comment..but everyone to there own opinion..lol that has made me chuckle though : )

Vocally there's NO comparing Tom Chaplin with Morten Harket. As much as I like Keane you cannot put them in the same category and Morten held a note for 20.2 seconds in a-ha's 2000 song "Summer Moved On", believed to be the longest note in UK chart history. Morten's vocal range is known to span five octaves, which is unusually high for a Male singer.

Tom Chaplin rocks. I love Keane and Tom's voice, but in my opinion Morten is the best. Morten almost certainly has a wider vocal range, but range isn't everything. An exceptional tenor like Tom Chaplin outclasses other singers with freakish ranges but less quality.
