What a beautiful video! Thanks so much for posting it - I've sent it to others I know who will appreciate it. The music is also very nice - must admit I worried a bit toward the end, when the total weight of the seal went over her - good for her ignoring the fishy breath to let the obviously smitten seal love her.
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:

25 years! My goodness!
I do remember seeing this on this craaaazy station from back in the day called MTV. 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
Thanks for reminding me of it
