Song of the Day: 'Take On Me' by A-Ha


Of the quintessential songs of the '80s, I must confess this was never high on my list of favorites. (I was more "Poison Arrow," "Come On Eileen" and "I Melt With You" than "Safety Dance," "Who Can It Be Now?" and A-Ha.) But this poster sure is!

It was not the song so much as the video. I do like the use of it as 'the hook' in the Pitbull/Christina Aguilera song "Feel this Moment."

My boys! I caught that video when it premiered... by chance... and was immediately hooked. Their first album, HUNTING HIGH AND LOW is flawless. Their second and third are fantastic. Like most bands, their later albums are fine, and I buy them, but rarely go back to them.
Read their Wikipedia entry... you might be surprised.
