One of the most enthusiastic songs and videos of the late 20th century was a-ha’s “Take On Me.”

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 YouTube® –

“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.”

Whoopi Goldberg, Peter Bergman & Mick Jagger – “I was born in a crossfire hurricane.”

What is it like to be born in a “crossfire hurricane?

To me, this is a song for the baby boomer set – people born before John Fitzgerald Kennedy was president.

Then again, as you’ll see with the next post, those in New Jersey of the Bewitched Generation also think if the opening track to Bruck Springsteen’sbest album imho, Darkness On The Edge Of Town.

I asked the world’s go-to fact site, Google and asked that question, and this came up

How fast is the Rolling Stones version? Jonson and I measured these tempo charts:

Sheryl Crow best bass-line groove? “My Favorite Mistake” | modern tempo probability charts copyrighted yet unclassified

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The best co-writer I ever worked with was Norman Dozier. Real name.

Norm was inside the inside the business. He had a word of wisdom in regard to *any* good piece of music, especially popular songs:

“The song has *got* to have a different, new bass-line.”

Who am I to ever question Norman? I cannot say enough about the positive influence he had on me and New York City in general. I especially thank the organist Mollie Nichols for introducing me to and arranging the playing of new music written mostly by me.

So said: the orchestration was all Norm, and the orchestration of our version of Psalm 113 squeaked in the morning service with Bach, Vaughn Williams and others I have no right to name drop. Norm helped fit our hymn in the genre of modern classical. I have total respect for the rock n roll night services and the amplifiers and drums and keyboard samples – anything that flies your plane – but not at a Sunday morning 10:30 Episcopal service – for my taste.

What do you think of this song?

 

Thanks!
