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.

Bossa Nova, ewig fließende Strömung

Seit seiner Entstehung in den späten 1950er Jahren ist der Bossa Nova zu einem unverzichtbaren Bestandteil der breitgefächerten brasilianischen Musikpalette geworden. Diese Musik mit ihrer wachrufenden Kraft hat Künstler aus aller Welt überzeugt und erstklassige Musiker hervorgebracht, deren Kompositionen zu Klassikern geworden sind.

Herbie Hancock, die Jagd nach Funk

Der Pianist Herbie Hancock und sein ehemaliger Arbeitgeber Miles Davis sind die Gründungsväter des Fusion Jazz. Mit seinem Album „Head Hunters“ schafft er 1973 die Bibel der gelungensten Union zwischen Jazzimprovisation und psychedelischem Transfunk. Afro-Mix und Bühnenerfolg für alle!

Nirvana, Ende des Rock…

34 Jahre ist es nun her, dass Nirvana Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts das Licht der Welt erblickte. Als komplett unerwarteter Schlenker der Punkbewegung ereilte sie eine Blitzkarriere, internationale Hits, Fans in rauen Mengen und leider auch tragisches Nachspiel für einen in aller Welt bekannten Sonderling. Die Band von Kurt Cobain war vielleicht ganz einfach die letzte richtige Rockgruppe der Geschichte. Ein derartiges Phänomen einer ganzen Generation, wenn nicht sogar ihr letzter Mythos.
