I’m joining in with the Weekend Music Share feature onHugh’s Views and News again this week with a song and video from the 80s.
Although the 80’s wasn’t my favourite decade, there were several songs that I really enjoyed, especially this novel video for Take On Me by a-ha. Books and reading are two of my favourite things and the idea of a falling for a fictional character, and being taken into his world, really appealed to me.
The fact that Morten Harket was easy on the eye didn’t hurt either! The video won in several categories at the MTV Music Video awards and was nominated for two more.
The first version of the song had different lyrics and was re-written in 1984 and, with the reworked video and instumentals, was released in 1985. It peaked at No 1 in the US and No2 in the UK.
Thanks for reading. Feel free to share...just click a button...or two ;o)
