My Music Monday

I'm looking at songs that close out strong albums. Not all are debut disks, but the Pretenders one was, as is this week: a-ha.

I'd say a-ha is a guilty pleasure for me, except for the fact I feel no guilt.

While some of their catalogue is spotty, their debut disk is still solid. Every song.

They could easily passed off as fluff (well, kind of), but if you youtube them and look at some of their live stuff, their music translates well from studio to stage - and considering they're still going at it 35 years later, more power to them.

"Here I Stand and Face the Rain" ends their eponymous debut.

34+ years later, I still like it.
