Q: How long have you been an a-ha fan & what makes them such a good band?
A: I have been a fan since the beginning. When I first heard Take On Me I fell in love with the song, and at that point I had no idea what a-ha looked like!
I then saw them on TV - and that was it!!
I was 11 yrs old & found myself madly in love (as only an 11 yr old can!).
I cannot pinpoint exactly what makes a-ha suh a great band it's a wonderful mixture of originality, creativity, amazing lyrics performed beautifully, good looks and just everything!
Perhaps they are so good because through different songs they have the ability to 'touch' you, to take you away from whatever hassles you have.
To me personally they have always been there for me - whatever mood I have been in or whatever life has thrown at me. Their music has soothed me, inspired me, relaxed me.
Q: What other musical influences do you have?
A: I do not listen to that much music - but when I do, I 'really' listen to it.
I have also listened to a-ha, of course, but I also like things like - U2, Bryan Adams, Savage Garden, & Sting.
I do not listen to much chart stuff, it seems to lack something.
But by far a-ha have been the biggest influence on me.
Q: If you could be a fly on the wall for any of the a-ha guys, who would you choose & why?
A: Can I only choose one?? Can't I have all three?
No seriously - I would not want to be a fly on the wall for any one of them when they are having time to themselves (what they do in their private lives is up to them and should remain private!).
What I would like is to be a fly on the wall when all three get together & become a-ha.
I would love to witness a day in the recording studio or something like that. To be there & see the creativity, to see the songs come together as the finished product.
