T: Take On Me

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

Another HUGE hit of the ’80s, due in part to the totally amazing video. A lot of videos don’t stand the test of time, but this one still to this day looks so awesome!

This is totally New Wave. Don’t you just love the synthesizer? And how did he hit that high note? From what I understand, he can still hit that high note in concert. Crazy!

Take On Me reached the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and remained on the charts for twenty-three weeks. And how about this wild stat: According to Wikipedia, “As of June 2014, the song has sold 1,463,000 digital copies in the US after it became available for download in the digital era.” Wow!
