hen morten harket, paul waaktaar and magne furuholmen
formed a-ha in the early 1980's, they probably never suspected they would become the biggest musical act ever to hit the blue-box charts in pop history! a-ha have the distinction of having the most no.1 songs in history - a staggering 24 no.1 hit singles! this norwegian trio has also had 16 no.1 albums! they have spent a total of 122 weeks at #1 on the singles chart, and a total of 128 weeks at #1 on the albums chart – the most weeks for any artist at #1 ever! after their initial split in 1994, their comeback in 2000 was considered one of the most important musical events in recent music history. following a very successful decade in the 00's, a-ha once more announced calling it quits at the end of 2010, certainly ending on a high note.  life sometimes just keeps on giving though, and they again reunited in 2015, continuing their reign as one of the greatest pop bands ever! (hail the kings of the universe! ; )
