Does anyone NOT like ‘Take On ME’ by  A-ha?  Wait, you know what?  Don’t answer that question, because we can’t be friends if you happen to not.  Got that?  You can close this page and go back to your bummersville tunes.  Peace, haters.

 

Okay, now that we’re all in agreement here, I’ll continue.  So this song is great.  Danceable, sing-along-able, total karaoke-fodder…basically just starts impromptu dance parties whenever it comes on.  But did you know it gets EVEN BETTER?  Yeah, it does. And I only just discovered it:

 

THE MUSIC VIDEO IS FUCKING AWESOME.  See below:

Ummmm….it’s like I just watched a beloved  80’s movie I never knew existed.  Hi there, hot lead singer dude with the fantastic 80’s hair…Hi there crazily impressive special effects/animation that seems beyond advanced for being done in 1985. Hi there, romance, adventure, and magic all rolled into one 3 minute and 47 second song….I love you.

 

If there are other AMAZING old music videos out there that you know about, speak up!
