National One Hit Wonder Day was Yesterday, A-ha with Take on Me

Yesterday was National One-hit Wonder Day.  A-ha's Take on Me topped the list this year.  And guess what?  I have their record without there One Hit.  This one is called Scoundrel Days.  Have never played it - likely never will, unless someone comes over and asks to hear it.  But the song you know is called Take on Me.  That one-hit was on their debut album called Hunting High and Low.


  1. Good post! Vinyls are an all time favorite :)

  2. Wow, I forgot all about that song. It came from simpler times, didn't it?

  3. They were actually a *2*-hit wonder in the US ;) And went on to become one of the biggest bands in the world in almost every other country except here. Believe it or not they're in the Guinness Book Of World Records for having the highest paid attendance at a single show, I believe 196,000 people. Scoundrel Days is probably their best moment, though it has some flaws, you should listen to it :)
