Manhattan Skyline" is a song by the Norwegian pop band A-ha. It was the third single from their Scoundrel Days album, and reached in the UK Singles Chart. The song was co-written by keyboardist Magne Furuholmen and guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy. The song starts with Furuholmen playing a Roland Juno-60 with Preset Number " 16 ", The Harpsichord - in F major, before kicking into a hard rock-style chorus with a guitar riff in D minor
Album: Scoundrel Days, 1986. The subject of the video is newsprint, and features a connect-the-dot of the band, a crossword puzzle, a printing press, and articles from newspapers from around the globe. Some of the clips of the band were printed in the style of black-and-white newspapers, but are in a moving format. Magne: " 'Manhattan Skyline' was perhaps one of the most inspired cut and paste projects that Paul and I did. I wrote the quiet part. Paul wrote the rock part.
