According to Upworthy, we’re in the midst of an 80s music revival – not something we at Gold104.3 ever deemed in need of reviving!
A-ha’s ‘Take On Me’ is that one iconic tune making the rounds amongst fans old and new. It’s a synth-laden masterpiece that makes you yearn for the days when neon was the colour of choice and mullets were a legit hairstyle.
In this resurfaced clip from 2018, A-ha decided to take a stroll down memory lane with an acoustic rendition of their smash hit and it’s pure, unplugged magic.
The comments say it all. Fans adore this acoustic version with some even claiming it’s better than the original.
One thing’s for sure: good music never goes out of style.
