A-ha: Famous pop video from Norway 25 years old today

Back in the 80's, this was my favourite pop video. My husband and I were into music videos, and we would just stare at the TV, immersed in the song and the visuals.

The band was called A-ha and the video was called "Take On Me". The lead singer had quite the voice, and was able to reach a really high note in the song, and this helped to make the video kind of special. What I didn't know was that A-ha has been touring in Europe all along and is just now hanging up their instruments and microphones.

Here's the video, enjoy:


First Basenji's

25 years! My goodness!

I do remember seeing this on this craaaazy station from back in the day called MTV. πŸ˜‰ Because of the time, I strongly associate this song with memories of when I first immigrated to the US with my family.

Like you Fran, i was realy into music videos in the 80's, actualy still love them now.
This has got to be one of my favourites.
The lead singer is just gorgeous, i love his voice, the comic book graphics, the story.
Guess i got a little carried away there πŸ˜‰
Thanks for reminding me of it

25 years….wow....that makes me feel old πŸ™‚ COOL song and video though πŸ™‚
