Legendary folk-rock duo David Crosby and Graham Nash played a concert at Oslo Konserthus on Sunday, October 23rd, where they dedicated the song “Just A Song Before I Go” to a-ha.
“I’d like to dedicate this song to a-ha. They’re friends of ours. This is for you, Morten”, Nash said as he introduced the classic tune, which first appeared on the album CSN in 1977. A live clip can be seen on YouTube.
Morten was in the audience at Oslo Konserthus last Sunday, just as he was when the duo last performed in Oslo six years ago.
Graham Nash’s friendship with the members of a-ha, and especially Morten, resulted in him doing backing vocals for two songs on a-ha’s Analogue album in 2005; “Cosy Prisons” and “Over The Treetops”.
In an interview that same year, Nash talked about his respect for the members of a-ha:
“I met a-ha for the first time in Barbados, and they made a very positive impression on me. They are different personalities that come together to make something creative. I really respect what they’re doing, and we made good contact. (…) a-ha is a great band, and the songs that I did backing vocals on are excellent”.
