Take On Me

ha @ARTISTdirect

The 1980’s (and 1880’s, too!) remains my favorite decade for music and is known for a lot of great songs and music, especially by one-hit-wonder singers and bands.  My favorite one-hit-wonder song for the ’80’s still remains the Grammy-winning No. 1 hit “Take On Me” by the Norwegian pop band A-Ha.  However, the 1980’s is also known for ushering in music videos and producing some if not most of the best music videos ever.  But for all of them, the music video for Take On Me is my absolute favorite.  It’s one of a kind, except for maybe a few copycats that don’t size up.  So if the song doesn’t grab you, the video certainly should.  It’s a pop music video that tells a story with a beginning, middle and end…and a happy ending.  It’s still absolutely awesome!
