Kids put to bed, kitchen tidied, laundry sorted, I sat down on the sofa with a nice cuppa to watch Bake Off, and thought to myself "Ooh, I know what I fancy, a little bit of Morten". Maybe it was someone talking about macaroons, I don't know. Anyway it was too easy to fire up YouTube and do a quick search, and there was the Stay on These Roads video.

Oh my eyes, he was lovely.

I've not so much as thought about Mr Harket for years. I'm pushing 40, with two kids, and dh will be home any minute. It is not reasonable behaviour, is it?

not sure that they actually sung anything all you could hear was hysterical screaming

AnaisHellWitch Tue 22-Oct-13 20:40:41

I can still remember watching them on Saturday Superstore with their corded landlines grin

He was always too neat. I preferred Mags.

don't know anyone that like Pal though

I managed to hold back the tears at their final London concert.

It's 100% perfectly normal to have a Morten moment.

Or a Mags moment.

Or a Morten-and-Mags-stuck-in-a-lift-moment.

Not that I give it much thought...

Check out the 'I call Your Name' video. My personal fave!

BurlyShassey Tue 22-Oct-13 20:44:29

I loved Mags. everyone else liked Morten. thought I could nab Mags then but noooooooo.

and imo morten has NOT age well! knew that even in the 80's hew wouldn't.

aahhhhh the living daylights.......the blood that moves the body.....hunting high and low...

Scoundrel Days is one of my all time fave albums.

and sawthem in concert in the 80s. Mags on the skateboard......

yy I used to wear the leather bracelets all up my arms too!grin

BurlyShassey Tue 22-Oct-13 20:46:18

ah yes Saturday superstore when Mags dressed up in Bernie Cliftons ostrich costume! grin.

hands up, I liked Pal too!

WireCat Tue 22-Oct-13 20:46:20

Think I've uploaded pic of me & Magne from Feb this year on my profile.

SpottyDottie Tue 22-Oct-13 20:47:19

I think you'll find I'm Mrs Harket grin

StanleyLambchop Tue 22-Oct-13 20:48:08

I quite liked Pal actually. All three of them in a lift?? What do they look like now, anyone know?

MymbleHasRisenFromTheGrave Tue 22-Oct-13 20:48:38

Oh, he's always been so beautiful. That bit in the Take On Me video where he beckons her into the picture...I wished that was me very badly!

WireCat Tue 22-Oct-13 20:48:39

I'm @mrs_harket on twitter! grin

SpottyDottie Tue 22-Oct-13 20:52:06

Blast! WireCat grin

noviceoftheday Tue 22-Oct-13 20:52:19

Yanbu at all. Not one little bit. Oh I sooo would!

DontMentionThePrunes Tue 22-Oct-13 20:54:37

Here's a bit of Morten (promise, keep watching!)

FlatsInDagenham Tue 22-Oct-13 20:55:24

You know, I don't do celebrity crushes. Never really have.

But Morten.... <swoon>

AnaisHellWitch Tue 22-Oct-13 20:55:38

Wirecat, that's great!

Our Mort went out with the girl in the Take On Me video. I was so jealous!

Balloonist Tue 22-Oct-13 20:57:28

That voice!! Incredible. Never heard anything like it.

He's in his fifties now and still looking good. There was a thread a while back with photos and he looked good!

I love that Dont. grin Morten doesn't do it for me though. John Taylor stole my heart and that was that.....

AnaisHellWitch Tue 22-Oct-13 21:00:39

DontMentionThePrunes that video is hilarious!

"Sold to the gentleman in the mustard cords" grin

Good on Morty to appear in it. Like when Johnny Depp went on The Fast Show.

gussiegrips Tue 22-Oct-13 21:01:41

Now,Prunes I'm not really very keen on mustard. But, I'd swallow that.

Lashings and lashings of the stuff.

Recent footage on BBC Breakfast

DontMentionThePrunes Tue 22-Oct-13 21:06:01

It's great, isn't it? "I know where you can get some tomatoes at three times the price!" "Really?! Where?!" grin

(To return to the subject) I think I was about 13 when Take On Me was released...obviously MH looked like a big girl's blouse, but he was still formative... Sigh.

FreudiansSlipper Tue 22-Oct-13 21:09:07

i have gone off him a little after seeing that bbc breakfast clip sad
