Here's the 1985 classic debut single from Norwegian pop trio a-ha. Almost the entire nation burst with pride when this single amazingly reached number 1on the Billboard Hot 100 in October of that year. After three tries it also gained the number 2 spot on the UK singles chart, and the first true Norwegian pop success was a fact. Steve Barron's groundbreaking music video definitely had a lot to do with its success, but the song itself is super catchy, and it sounds almost as fresh today as it did then.
