So this week I didn't expect to blog, even though a-ha is playing some gigs in South America. Imagine my surprise when I got online this morning to find out that the one new(er) a-ha song is based on a theme from "Ti Kniver I Hjertet," a soundtrack composed, arranged and produced by Magne back in 1994.
I don't have this soundtrack, but the lovely Sue created some song samples for me to use on magnef.us. Take a listen to the first sample from the album, Ti Kniver I Hjertet (Ottos Tema), and then watch this:
For those of you following along, I apologize for the shock - yes, it took this song by Magne to get me to finally actually embed a Youtube link in one of my blogs. Gawd I hate Youtube and all it stands for (::shaking fist at the sky::), but at times like this I cannot resist it's lure.
Must. Withstand. Timesucking. Vacuum.
Anyway, good song, and I'm looking forward to hearing the album version. I guess it's possible I'll post more about Magne's a-ha contributions when I get the album in my hands, I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do that with 'Analogue' but I guess I was pretty busy almost constantly from August 2005-May 2007...I don't expect to be that busy this fall when the album comes out, at any rate ;-)
