A-Ha - Take On Me -Electric Mandolin Cover

2년 전

Saludo amigos!, en esta oprtunidad recordemos uno de los temas más conocidos en la década de los 80s, "Take On Me", perteneciente al album “Hunting High And Low”, de la banda Noruega "A-Ha"; una cosa que pasa con esta banda y que me llamo poderosamente la atencion es que es considerada como una"One Hit Wonder", lo que quiere decir que se hicieron mundialmente famosos por una sola cancion, y el resto de su discografia paso lastimosamente "desapercibida", por supuesto todas estas bandas y "A-Ha" en particular tendran sun miles de fans que escuchan todos sus discos, pero a nivel mundial solo son conocidos por esa cancion en especifico, es como una especie de maldicion o bendicion, segun quieras verlo, claro!.

Take on me fue compuesta por Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, Morten Harket y Magne Furuholmen, con una instrumentación bastante variada que incluía sintetizadores, guitarras, teclado y batería, fue publicada en el año 1984, pero sin exito aparente, posterior a ello tuvo otra versión en abril del año 1985, con un poco más de éxito. Pero el éxito total no llegaría hasta que fue lanzada la tercera versión en el mes de septiembre del mismo año, el cual fue acompañado de un vídeo, lo que hizo que la popularidad del tema y de la banda se disparase, llegando al primer puesto en las listas de ventas de Estados Unidos, Noruega y doce países más así como número dos en Reino Unido, Irlanda y Japón.

Espero les guste, un abrazo!!!

English Version

Greetings friends !, in this opportunity remember one of the best known songs in the decade of the 80s, "Take On Me", belonging to the album "Hunting High And Low", the Norwegian band "A-Ha"; one thing that happens with this band and that my attention is so powerful is that it is considered a "One Hit Wonder", which means that they became world famous for a single song, and the rest of their discography happened pitifully "unnoticed" ", of course all these bands and" A-Ha "in particular will have sun thousands of fans who listen to all their albums, but worldwide they are only known for that specific song, it's like a kind of curse or blessing, according to your wishes see it, of course!.

Take on me was composed by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, Morten Harket and Magne Furuholmen, with a quite varied instrumentation that included synthesizers, guitars, keyboard and drums, was published in 1984, but without apparent success, after that it had another version in April of the year 1985, with a little more success. But the total success would not come until the third version was released in September of the same year, which was accompanied by a video, which made the popularity of the song and the band soar, reaching the first place in the sales lists of the United States, Norway and twelve more countries as well as number two in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Japan.

I hope you like it, a hug!!!
