Weekend Music: A-ha Edition

When people (of a certain age) tell you that they “wore that tape out”, it’s almost always metaphorical. A-ha’s Hunting High and Low? I wore it out.  Everyone knows Take On Me. And, like everyone else, I love it.  How can you not?

That is pure 80s West Germany for me.  Nothing but good.

    Oh and anyone who stopped at Hunting High and Low missed out on the really good tape to wear out: Scoundrel Days.

  3. Take On Me never made any sense to me, but the tune is catchy and I always loved that imaginative video.
