Talking Take On Me

I love this song! lol Sorry, just had to share that. So, what do you guys think of the song? At least for those of you who were around back in 1985 when it was hot stuff.

They are still around. They broke up, but then got back together I think. Here's the Wikipedia article. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-ha

Take on me is among my most favourite most embarassing songs.
The number one though remains Desireless: Voyage, Voyage.

Wow, thats funny. I now saw the video for the first time in my life. The space shuttle in the background. I love this song since my very early childhood. And to now see this space shuttle is kind of revealing.

I loved it too, and Family Guy did a good spoof on it a year or so ago.

Meh, unfortunetly that's how people nowadays recognize the song. I personally didn't find it all that funny, but oh, well.

I found it funny becuase Seth MacFarlane is a product of the 80's as well. He constantly puts references of the 80's in to his shows.

Funny you should say that... I was listening to 80s music on my ipod today... and that was one of the songs.... Makes me smile. I love Tears for Fears too! I like the musical interlude in Shout. Don't You Forget About Me!! ... Listened to George Micheal... Elton John... The Police... Boy George...
