Take On Me – A-Ha

Straight from the woods of Norway (with thanks to Beatles and Murakami), one of the most recognizable videos of all time. A very innovative technique back then, called rotoscoping was used to draw over individual frames of video. It brought them 6 MTV Video Awards in 1986.

Lyrics:

Talking away
I don’t know what I’m to say
I’ll say it anyway
Today isn’t my day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, OK?

Take on me (take on me),
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

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

Take on me (take on me),
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

Oh, things that you say
Is it a life 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

Take on me (take on me),
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day

Take on me (take on me),
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day
