After witnessing a Radio DJ introduce his 2019 release "Blinding Lights", live on Radio, as "A-ha, oops, The Weeknd", we felt this just needed to be added here.

The Weeknd

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye (born February 16, 1990), better known by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, actor and record producer. In 2010, he anonymously uploaded several songs to YouTube under the name "The Weeknd" and released the mixtapes House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence in 2011 which quickly gained him a following and recognition from several mainstream publications due to his dark wave-style of R&B and the mystique surrounding his identity.


A-ha (usually stylised as a-ha; Norwegian pronunciation: [ɑˈhɑː]) are a Norwegian band formed in Oslo in 1982. Founded by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (guitars), Magne Furuholmen (keyboards, guitars) and Morten Harket (vocals), the band rose to fame during the mid-1980s and continued its global success in the 1990s and the 21st century.

The Songs

We leave this here, purely for you to make up your own minds.

Just hang on for the a drum line, then compare that to the A-ha video.

The Result

None that we can find at this point, but there does seem to be many people that can gear the similarities here.
