Morten Harket

Perfil:
Norwegian singer and musician, born 14 September 1959 in in Kongsberg, Norway. Father of Tomine Harket.

As the vocalist for a-ha, Morten Harket was considered as just another '80s MTV pretty boy. Born in Kongsberg, Norway, on September 14, 1959, Harket learned how to play piano at the age of four; raised on classical music, Harket was oblivious to rock and pop artists until he was 16.

Harket originally wanted to become a priest; however, when he joined the rock group Bridges, he had to quit his theological studies to find time for his band. In 1983, Harket formed a-ha with Magne Furuholmen (keyboards, harmonica, vocals) and Paal Waaktaar (bass, guitar, piano, vocals).

When a-ha released the video for "Take On Me" in America in 1985, critics tossed darts at Harket's pin-up looks, dismissing him as a Simon Le Bon clone. However, a-ha's debut album Hunting High and Low was much more diverse than "Take On Me" suggested, and Harket spilled his pain with a high-pitched falsetto over a bed of acoustic guitars and electronics long before Thom Yorke of Radiohead reaped awards and platinum albums for doing it.

Harket's stunning vocals finally acquired critical acclaim with a-ha's second album, Scoundrel Days, in 1986. In 1987, Harket's voice could be heard in the James Bond adventure The Living Daylights; a-ha peformed the film's theme song.

In addition to his work with a-ha, Harket has recorded three solo albums, Poetenes Evangelium, Wild Seed, and Vogts Villa. In 2000, Harket's haunting vocal work on a-ha's Minor Earth Major Sky mesmerized critics, drawing comparisons to Neil Young, the Verve, and R.E.M.

Simply one of the best and greatest singers in “pop rock” history of all time. Unfortunately he doesn’t always get the credits that he really deserve. A wonderful and great person in which all people should cherish
