SONG OF THE WEEK + LEGEND SONG +

Song : Take on Me
Band: A - Ha

About The Band
A-ha is a Grammy Award-nominated band from Norway. They are the best selling Norwegian band around the world with a total of 40 million records sold. They rose to fame during the 1980s, but continued to be globally successful in the 1990s and 2000s. The trio, composed of lead vocalist Morten Harket, guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy,(Pål Waaktaar until his marriage in 1994) and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, formed in 1982 and left Norway for London in order to make a career in the music business. They chose the studios of musician, producer and soon-to-be-manager John Ratcliff, because it had a Space Invaders machine. The origin of the name "a-ha" comes from the lyrics of an early song ("Nothing To It"). After checking dictionaries in several languages, they found out that "a-ha" was an international way of expressing recognition, with positive connotations. It was short, easy to say and unusual.

About the Song and Video
"Take on Me" is a song by the Norwegian band a-ha. The song is a track from a-ha's first album, Hunting High and Low, released in 1985 . The music video for the song first aired in 1985 on local Boston music video station V66, and then subsequently on MTV. The innovative video was an amalgamation of rotoscope-style animation and live-action. The video was inspired by the animated film "Commuter" created by Michael Patterson, and the movie Altered States.

We're talking away
I don't know what
I'm to say I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, OK?

CHORUS:
Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But that's me stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry

CHORUS

Oh the things that you say
Is it live or
Just to play my worries away
You're all the things
I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway

CHORUS
