Song of the Week: "Take On Me"

This was everywhere when I was 9 and 10 (you remember), but unlike a lot of things you couldn't escape, I never got sick of this. I've never had it up--too obvious a choice, I guess--but this week I heard some new rap song that samples that great keyboard riff only to key you up for the most unexciting garbage, and I just need to hear the real song again because, shit, you don't get to do that, okay.

The bluegrass version of this song is amazing.

Oh dear sweet A-HA. I loved the comic book nature of the video combined with soaring vocals, great editing and the cutest girl any one of us have ever seen in our entire lives.
