SFF Music Video of the Week - #37

I fully expect that many some a couple at least one of my readers have been waiting for this iconic 80s video to make an appearance.

Featuring a blend of hand-drawn pencil animation and live-action footage, this video was an instant classic, and made the song a 1985 number one hit in the USA, and one of the best selling singles of all time.

But this is not the original - the original version (by the same band, from 1984) had a far less popular response, and a far more boring video. It was a flop outside of Norway.  Remixed and re-released a year later, it soared to remarkable heights, and has stayed there year after year, and is one of only five songs on YouTube to exceed one beeelion views.

So here you have it, Aha's 1985 release of "Take On Me", as remastered from the original 35mm film in 2019.
