Another great chart from Very Small Array. This time, it's Billboard Magazine's “Hot 100 Hits of 2008.” Pop music is still an unstoppable juggernaut. See the complete chart here.
The song “Take on Me” by Norwegian band a-ha, reached the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1985.
The success of the single could be attributed to the facts that the song was extremely radio-friendly, and also that it had an innovative, quintessentially ‘80s music video. The video blended rotoscope animation and live action sequences.
Dustin Mclean (aka Dustball), award-winning animator and musician, has now remixed the music video by adding his own voice and lyrics to it.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I just loved this version more.
