D80sV #84: A-ha - Take On Me

Daily 80's Video: Arguably A-Ha's "Take On Me" remains as one of the best videos of the 80's and probably all time. The video depicts a simple story, but in a style that was groundbreaking at the time, and yet stands the test of time. I refuse to call A-ha a one hit wonder, even if, technically, they are. As an A-ha fan, let me assure you, they were a talented band, especially lead singer Morten Harket who is one of my favorite singers of all time, and had several successful albums and a formidable worldwide following. America might have quit them after one song, but thankfully, America isn't the end-all and be-all of taste. Enjoy the great effects, simple yet well told storyline, Morten Harket's voice, and Magne Furuholmen's now iconic keyboard playing. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
