No, not the Norwegian group A-ha, we're in the wrong section for that
Knowing Me Knowing You may have given Alan Partridge his catchphrase, but this ejaculatory expression served ABBA well lyrically on a number of occasions. How many can we think of? One per poster please, for the sake of group participation - unless the responses fizzle out early.
Ah-ha ha keep thinkin 'bout his angel eyes
Just a bit of fun, plus I'm intrigued to find out if anyone can dig out an obscure one when the well known examples dry up
OK so I have now listened to every 'ah' on Arrival (the track) and I can't hear a single 'ha'. I'm going to put my hunt for a sixth 'ah ha' on the backburner for a while and start a new search instead.
Björn told Chris Evans that he sometimes cheats a little by using an English rhyming dictionary when he is writing lyrics. I reckon that the dictionary is so well-thumbed that it occasionally falls open at the same place. In Honey Honey, the girls sing of the love machine that is nearly killing them: 'Let me feel it, don't conceal it'. But the feel/conceal couplet crops up in another couple of songs at least, and maybe more. How many can we come up with?
2) Is there an ABBA connection with the origin of the band name 'A-ha!'? (Well, Take On Me does thematically resonate with Take A Chance On Me!)
From Wikipedia: They were trying to think of what to call themselves, focusing on Norwegian words people could say in English. They jettisoned that idea when Morten spotted a song called "A-ha" in Waaktaar's songbook. "It was a terrible song but a great name," says Morten.
Thank you, Roxanne. Interesting about A-ha too, Shoshin and Take on Me/Take a Chance on Me. Who knows what goes through a songwriter's mind, be it other writer's lyrics or groups or whatever, that inspires a new song (well, songwriters do, I suppose :))).
Can you come up with another feel/conceal rhyme? There's at least one more for sure
I am not quite understanding what you are asking here? Could you give me an example? Thanks

Roxanne got IDx5 "I can't conceal it, don't you see, can't you feel it". She knows another one but is keeping it to herself in the interests of wider participation
