An essential buy.
Mr. R. L. Prior
It has a great selection of their songs (although "hits" is subjective) and the sound and quality of the cd is good.

a-ha has been my favorite since 1985. I was 15 and in the front row of their concert of the old Met Center in Minneapolis, MN before it was torn down. These men truly know who to create weak knees! Their voices and instrumentation abilities make my skin tingle. The Sun Always Shines on TV has been my favorite song since the first moment I heard it. It's fun to be nearly 29 and still in love with them. I used to have $350.00 of posters and merchandise as a kid.
My nine-year-old daughter listens to them with me now and maybe some day when we make it to Norway, well, maybe we'll get to meet them. I would love for them to sing at my wedding in Alaska this spring...
Thanks for the skin-tingling, mesmerizing ballads!
Your fan,
Cammilla

A-Ha were undoubtably one of the top bands of the 80's worldwide and to achieve this feat while coming from Norway makes it all the better as Norway isn't exactly renowned for producing world class bands.
Headlines And Deadlines contains all of A-Ha's hits in the UK from 1985 through to the release of this compilation in 1991 and some of the songs here higlight how good they could be when they got it right but some of the newer material just doesn't live up to past expectations and this is probably the major factor in the downfall although they have refound their form on the new album Minor Earth Major Sky.
Starting the CD with their most memorable hit and one of the most memorable videos of all time Take On Me still retains that irresistable charm and ending with their only other major hit, the UK No 1 The Sun Always Shines On TV. This is by far the best song on the CD. What may surprise people is how good the other songs on this collection are as they weren't as memorable or big at the time. I've Been Losing You has one of the catchiest chorus' around, The Living Daylights has everything a Bond theme could wish for with that great tune and Stay On These Roads is a top ballad which captures the heart with its tune even if the lyrics don't really stick in your head.
Despite all these classics and numerous others their newer material like Move To Memphis and Early Morning let the CD down greatly and you can't help but skip some tracks.
A-Ha's more edgy and almost spooky rock/pop music is some of the 80's best and this is highlights them at the top of their game and is an essential purchase for a fan of 80's music.

I remember when I bought this album a long time ago. It was way back when I was a junior in high school. I hadn't really heard much by A-Ha other than their classic hit "Take On Me" at the time. But when I got this album it totally blew me away. I listened to it over and over again until I realized that every single song on here kicks. It's a shame that so many people have written off A-Ha as one-hit wonders because they are really so much more than that. In addition to this awesome collection they have four great albums that are not to be missed by any music fans. On this collection, songs like "Cry Wolf", "Train of Thought", and "Touchy" are upbeat songs that are a lot of fun to listen to while songs like "Hunting High and Low", "Stay On These Roads", and "Manhattan Skyline" are more poignant, passionate, and let the listener in on A-Ha's sensitive side. Overall a truly awesome collection. "Take On Me" is NOT the best song on here. In my humble opinion, it's not even the best. I highly recommend this compilation, because all the songs on here range from good to great!

I was 14 when a-ha stepped onto the scene in 1985.
Definitely the idea for the TAKE ON ME video was stuning, all that cartoons/live mixing was fresh stuff.
Plus the song was catchy and fast became a # 1 hit on both sides of the atlantic.
THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON TV did just great here in Europe but failed to repeat success in the US - although the mannequins storyboard for its video was just as good.
And the musical bridge boasts a great violin section.
A-ha proved to be polyedric artists: HUNTING HIGH AND LOW, TRAIN OF THOUGHTS are just nuggets, THE BLOOD THAT MOVES THE BODY and THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS (from the 1987 James Bond original soundtrack) border closely to high-class pop.
MANHATTAN SKYLINE and I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU are possibly the best tracks off their second album, while STAY ON THESE ROADS is a simple, well-crafted, radio-friendly tune.
The unreleased track MOVE TO MEMPHIS is stunningly poly-rhythmical, sensual and sung by a dark-voiced Morten Harkett.
The guys are long gone from the top of the charts but they're definitely not from my heart!

Wow. I looked at the track listing, and thought
I maybe recognised four or five of the songs.
Putting the CD on, I found I knew maybe four or
five by heart, knew the first verse of four others,
and liked the rest.
My favourite has to be "The Blood that Moves the
Body" -- is there another song about the Japanese
tradition of seppuku? All these songs bring back
memories, especially "Stay on these Roads" which
came out around the time my family emigrated
from Ireland. A-ha did very well in Ireland, and
I seem to recall several #1s. Even now the songs
stand up to comparison with modern song writing,
lyrically and melodically. "The Living Daylights"
is the only rival to Goldfinger for best Bond
theme, and "Hunting High and Low" has the creepy
subtext of the best ballads (think "Every Breath
You Take").
A concentrated hit of 80's nostalgia that won't be
taken out of my CD player for a while.
