What song transports you back in time?
The Norwegian band A Ha with their U.S hit Take Me On brings me back instantly to my teenage years. Not quite back to my memories of high school; I didn’t particularly enjoy high school. I loved the learning part of school, just didn’t care for the social hierarchy and the silly games of fitting in and which group deemed you acceptable and which didn’t. It took me three years before I fit in anywhere, but this song made me forget all that; it’s catchy, upbeat and his voice strums the strings of your heart just right; where it puts a smile on your face, a hum in your throat and a spring in your step.
The video is also quite clever and back then it was a rare treat to actually see music video’s so this one really stood out.
