Aha- Take On Me


Take On Me is an awesome 80s song that is best known for its innovative video rather than for the song itself. The video uses a technique known as rotoscoping, where each frame is hand traced with pen or pencil to give it its comic book effect. The video has several parodies, including one on Family Guy as well as a literal version. I'll post all of them below

  3. This song is a classic, sadly, its pretty much the only song a-ha is known for. Family Guy's parody of it is fantastic though.
