Most often remakes are done by newer bands reinventing a classic song such as Disturbed’s rendition of The Sound of Silence. Sometimes, they’re mind-blowingly awesome and become new favourites. Other times, they catch on for a couple of weeks and then fade away.
It’s a little unusual for a band to take one of their own nearly 40-year-old songs and reinvent it, but that’s just what a-ha has done with this version of Take on Me.
It’s less of an upbeat catchy tune now and more of a deep and loving, soulful experience to see and hear.
I’m digging it.
Not only is it an old favourite for many out there, but it can draw new fans. I’m now wondering if a new album is in the works.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Guid cheerio the nou,
