The blood that moves the body - A-ha

'The blood that moves the body' was released as the second single from A-ha's third album 'Stay on these roads' in June 1988. The enigmatic lyrics of this song have been attributed to many things, including teen suicides in Japan and literary references to 'eyes of a blue dog'. World sales reportedly amounted to 400,000 copies.

Personally I thought this was one of the weaker tracks on the album. It was re-released in March 1992 as a remixed version.

My collection: 7" single no. 648
Found: Free Record Shop, Leiden, August 19, 1988
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'The blood that moves the body' / 'There's never a forever thing'


  1. Lol, IMHO it's the strongest song on the album ;-) such great melody and synthesiser hook....

  2. I think its a great song, but love the B side even more, should have been released as a single in its own right.
