Final goodbye message from A-haPosted on 04/12/12
Ooops, it seems an old message popped up again in our message box. Still, enjoy Magne's goodbye words anyhow which he posted on December 4th, 2010.
In a message posted on the official A-ha website, Magne Furuholmen (in the name of A-ha) has given a final goodbye to all A-ha fans. The text reads as one big 'thank you' and is unsurprisingly also titled "Thank you all". These words mean the official end of a band which has changed the way videos have been perceived and which put Norway once and for good on the music map. Thanks for 30 years of synthpop art!
Read along what got posted:
- "THANK YOU ALL
A message from a-ha:
where to begin...
i suppose 'thank you, all' for once sums it up perfectly.
thank you is really the only thing that makes any sense at this point. thank you fans and friends - for giving us your time, your minds, your passion, in some cases a good chunk of your respective lives, and no doubt considerable amounts of your money.
you have made it possible for us to do what we loved in the way we had hoped to do it.
this is the end for us, and we will not know what a future together could have brought.
but we do know what the past has held; it was pretty amazing to be a part of it.
from the start as childhood friends, to the peak of our career, and all the points inbetween, a-ha has coloured our lives in ways we don't even seem to comprehend ourselves.
this is as far as the road took us - but hey, we came a fair distance by any standard!
one thing is certain: we did it together. now a-ha will be a memory of a life we once shared.
so thank you all
we will not forget you and we hope that you do not forget us.
snipp snapp snute...
magne f (on behalf of a-ha)"
We added some of the band's best tracks after the jump. Enjoy!
