#4 [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]a-ha[/lastfm]-“Take On Me” (1985)


Norway’s favorite sons brought us this comic-strip inspired video in 1985. The animation sequence used in this video was from a technique called retroscoping, basically when people who can draw really well trace over a live-action film. You put that animation and live-action together and you get a video that won Video of the Year at the 1986 MTV Music Video Awards. And yes, Jack CAN still hit the high notes.
