It is so sad that hundreds of people, when hearing a-ha, think of Take On Me. They made so many better songs...

This one is from the 80s:

There are only 3 Men at Work tracks that were never put on CD, and this is one of them:

Pic mildly related.
I get what you mean, but Take on Me really is a good song.

But yeah, so many tracks stand out from that one album!
Sun Always Shines On TV, Blue Sky, Here I Stand and Face The Rain, they're all good and to anyone who's heard the whole record, they share equal ground with Take on me.

Why were the 80s the highpoint of humanity?
Mister Twister
They weren't, free yourself from nostalgia.
I like Take On Me.

I neglected the thread, and so will do something about it. Radio hits can go away, non-mainstream is where it's at:

Why can't Tesla or whoever just license the Pontiac Firebird Trans-am car design, cram all their self-driving car tech inside, and put it on the market like that as a KITT replica? It would be nothing less but the dream car for hundreds of thousands.
