a-ha, Take On Me

It is known as one of the “truly great pop songs” of the era. This video is the great story of the song –

No comment I read in public said it better than this on YouTubeĀ® –

“The interesting thing here is that the song was composed before they even met Morten, and still it appears to be written exactly for his vocal range There are very few singers who have volume and expression across more than two octaves. The riff and the refrain were created independently from each other but still it all fits together so nicely and organically.”

A song of maudlin melancholy that every forgets was on the most popular album in American History – Randy Meisner’s TRY AND LOVE AGAIN, eagle, ‘hotel California’_unclassified tempo map

TRY AND LOVE AGAIN, the eagles

To me this song has a feeling of deep bittersweetness – an America hiraeth.

What do you think the Eagles are trying to express?
