New piece up on a-ha’s “Scoundrel Days”

Done for the What Was It Anyway? blog, a kind of Stylus successor on a more low key level, but enjoyable. Full piece here. To quote a bit from it:

Somewhere, somehow, there’s a part of me that wishes I was Morten Harket, former Lutheran priest in training, now worldwide pop icon, even if only for a little while, standing above a landscape not dissimilar to the wider-than-widescreen landscape of green fields, distant hills, and blue but cloudy skies on the cover of the album, a fjord behind me or something, filming a video for the soaring title track quoted above and therefore getting the chance every so often to let fly with a huge, pure, perfectly sung, “And SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”

You laugh, but you’re not me.

Great album, still.
