A-ha - Take On Me Video Wiki

"Take On Me" is a song by Norwegian synthpop band A-ha, first released in 1984. The self-composed original version was produced by Tony Mansfield, and remixed by John Ratcliff. The second version was produced by Alan Tarney for the group's debut studio album Hunting High and Low (1985). The song combines synthpop with a varied instrumentation that includes acoustic guitars, keyboards and drums. The original "Take On Me" was recorded in 1984 and it took two versions and three releases to finally chart in the United Kingdom, reaching number two on the UK Singles Chart in October 1985. In the United States in October 1985, the song became the only A-ha song to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100, due in no small part to the wide exposure on MTV of its innovative music video, directed by Steve Barron. The video features the band in a live-action pencil-sketch sequence. The video won six awards and was nominated for two others at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards..

  • The Greatest Music Video of All Time

    This was my favorite music video when it was released and it has remained my favorite ever since. It is the most original video of all time, IMHO. I don't know all of the differences between this release and the earlier iTunes release of the Take On Me video; the only obvious one is the file size. The technical quality is high but it is a standard definition video.
  • So creative

    I had never seen a video like this - one of the very best of my decade, the 80's!
