Taking pictures of birds while listening to a Jonathan Franzen essay about birds. I’m the worst.
If you were a pill, I’d take a handful at my will,
And I’d knock you back with something sweet and strong

A couple of weeks ago, two of y’all were discussing a-Ha (Morten Harket in particular), and how you were only familiar with their one hit.
I was a little bit “c’mon, there was a second US-charting singleº on that first album”‚ and a little bit “I mean, they had a Bond-movie title songˇ that was, if not great, at least as good as ‘A View To A Kill.’”
I was also a little bit “maybe I’m over-reacting because I’m an a-Ha completionist. At least I think I am. Do I have all their albums?”
I checked the discography… and they did the Crowded House thing! A big Farewell To The World tour in 2010 (which I knew about), then a new album five years later (which I did not).

these should not be forgotten years
