068/100 - "Hunting High and Low" by A-HA
My album for today is dedicated to my dear wife, Olwyn, on her birthday. Her first album (mine too) was "Hunting High and Low" by Norwegian heart throbs, A-HA. It is a remarkable synth pop recording that stands the test of time insofar as it is, in my opinion, beyond dating - it has a timeless quality that ensures it never sounds old.
Yes, it is 30 years old ... and it is a product of its time and place ... but it is what is for me: an extravagant, vivacious slice of pure joy.
I guess you never forget your first.
