Anyone who dismissed a-ha as a one-hit wonder must have missed out on the band's fine debut, Hunting High and Low. Though the band spawned many further hits across the rest of the world, "Take on Me" exploded in the States and the group never cracked the top of the charts again. It's a shame, because the album contains a handful of songs that nearly match the manic energy and emotional crack of its big hit. Further, it's a cohesive album with smart pace changeups, and it rarely fails to delight or satisfy a listener's need for a synth pop fix. The opening kick is a huge one: "Take on Me" is a new wave classic laced with rushing keyboards, made emotionally resonant thanks to Morten Harket's touching vocal delicacy. It didn't hurt in the era of MTV that the song's video was a hyperkinetic blend of mind-warping animation and filmed footage with a romantic thriller's heart. Harket's hunky physique and cheekbones also didn't hurt the video's chances at heavy rotation. Getting past that video, "The Sun Always Shines on T.V." is just as thrilling. Starting as a sad ballad, it explodes into something much more, as chugging guitars and operatic synths keep pace with Harket's evocative vocal stylings. If ever a 1980s song qualified as Wall of Sound, "The Sun Always Shines on T.V." would be it. The remainder of the album sees a-ha switching deftly back and forth between dramatic overtures and classic new wave keyboard motifs. "Train of Thought" and "Love Is Reason" are reminiscent of early Depeche Mode or Camouflage, but Harket's rich voice and flair make them purely a-ha. The band explores decidedly European terrain in the theatrical "Hunting High and Low" and dances a pop waltz with the sweet "Living a Boy's Adventure Tale," coming across like a marriage between the Blue Nile and Alphaville. Delightful song snippets "The Blue Sky" and "And You Tell Me" act as frosting on the cake or as glue between the theater and the dancefloor. One can't escape the feeling that Hunting High and Low is a product of the 1980s, but with highs like "Take on Me" and "The Sun Always Shines on T.V.," and no lows in sight, a-ha's debut is a treat worth relishing.

Metallica, der Weg zum Mainstream

Mit 125 Millionen verkauften Alben weltweit, darunter ca. 30 Millionen Exemplare des "Black Album", ist Metallica eines der überraschendsten Phänomene der Popmusik in den letzten 50 Jahren. Wie hat es eine Metal-Band mit ihren komplizierten Songs geschafft, sich auf die Höhe von Madonna oder Michael Jackson hinaufzuschwingen? Durch Intuition und Entschlossenheit. Ein Blick zurück auf die Anfänge der wichtigsten Metal-Band der Geschichte.

Brigitte Bardot, Chanson unter der Sonne Frankreichs

Wir blicken einmal auf die Karriere der französischen Ikone als Sängerin zurück. Bardot bietet vielseitigen, französischen Pop, sowohl sanftes Dolcefarniente in La Madrague als auch wilde Freiheit auf der Harley Davidson. Anlässlich des soeben in Frankreich erschienenen Buchs von François Bagnaud und Dominique Choulant, „Moi je joue“, beleuchten wir diese Künstlerin einmal aus einem anderen Blickwinkel

Die Pioniere des Rock'n'Roll der 50s

Der Rock'n'Roll ist nicht tot. Aber seine Pioniere, die heute noch leben, kann man an zwei Fingern einer Hand abzählen: Jerry Lee Lewis und Wanda Jackson. 84 und 82 Jahre alt. Er, ein ungestümer Hitzkopf aus dem Hause Sun Records, der Geschichte schrieb, indem er sein Instrument in Brand setzte und Gospel, Country und Boogie-Woogie in einen höllischen Rock'n'Roll verwandelte. Sie, eine Country-Sängerin, die an der Seite von Elvis ihr großes Rock'n'Roll-Abenteuer erlebte. Von Little Richard bis Chuck Berry, über Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly und Hank Williams – Qobuz würdigt die Wegbereiter des Rock.
