FABTV: A-ha "Take On Me"

Obviously I've got a thing for highly stylized old school music videos. But this video stands apart from the rest. Not only is the song super catchy — definitely one for a road trip — but the video was way ahead of its time. It was released in 1985 and took the world by storm. Yes, it is uber-80s, but it's this style of the '80s that made the decade one of excess and electricity. The penciled comic book style along with the coolness, and cuteness, of the Norwegian band, was a winning combination — it won in six categories at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards. You've heard it a hundred times, so why not once more?
