mvod #925 A-ha – Take on Me

Heard this at my work place today in headphones, and with headphones, I realised, the beat is pretty cool! And as Wikipedia states: “there is a temporary change of markings in the drum pattern in the chorus, where for two bars the drums play in half time, returning to the same rhythm as before for the climax of the vocal line”. Of course it is a pretty cool old tune, and no doubt the Norwegian band’s most well-known tune.

Take a listen (headphones recommended):

Quite a tough song to sing too (SingStar or Rock Band DLC anyone?), as the vocal range is A3 – E6 according to the sheet music over at musicnotes.com (to hear guys going falsetto, always entertaining!)

Oh yeah, and the video is not bad either.
