Description

The theme of this video is a robbery gone wrong.

This is actually the second version of this video, the first version did not feature any of the scenes of Morten singing alone.

The video was filmed entirely with a specific technique of mobile cameras.

This is the only commercially available song that a-ha has remade unless you include "Velvet," first released with Savoy, or Magne's "Dragonfly."

Following the success of this song, a-ha became closer to the Everly Brothers, who had originally written the song. They were each presented with a set of guitars by the Everly Brothers that a-ha continue to use.

Morten's solo career spawned from his ability to learn to play and write music from that guitar.

The video was filmed in Big Timber, Montana.

Crying In The Rain

-

"Crying in the Rain" is a song written by Howard Greenfield and Carole King and originally recorded by The Everly Brothers. The single peaked at #6 on the U.S. pop charts in 1962.

The song was the only collaboration between successful songwriters Greenfield (lyrics) and King (music), both of whom worked for Aldon Music at the time of the song's composition. On a whim, two Aldon songwriting partnerships decided to switch partners for a day -- Gerry Goffin (who normally worked with King) partnered with Greenfield's frequent writing partner Jack Keller, leaving King and Greenfield to pair up for the day. Despite the commercial success of their collaboration, King and Greenfield never wrote another song together.

In 1990, the Norwegian pop band a-ha covered the song. Following its success, a-ha became closer to the Everly Brothers, who had originally recorded the song. The band members were presented a set of guitars by the Everly Brothers that a-ha continues to use.

This is one of the few commercially available songs which a-ha have covered, the only others being "Velvet", first released by Savoy, and "Dragonfly", first released by Magne Furuholmen.

The video was directed by Steve Barron. The theme of the video is a robbery gone wrong. It is actually the second version of this video, the first version did not feature any of the scenes of Morten Harket singing alone. The video was filmed entirely with a specific technique of mobile cameras and was filmed in Big Timber, Montana.
