Take On Me (a cappella cover)

May 18, 2008 6:19 PM

My entry for the as-yet-unannounced Do An A Cappella Cover Of A-Ha's 'Take On Me' On A Dare From Your Wife challenge.

So I consider myself ahead of the game.

Why this happened is kind of a long story that involves moderate amounts of drinking. I did it in the least amount of time possible, which pretty much explains why it sounds like it does.

Hahahaaaaa, oh my god. The high note at the end is almost as good as the music video.

And I see you've added the norwegians tag.

But I'm not sure if a Norwegian would.

See, I can't hear this song without hearing the lyrics 'as gaeilge' (in Irish) since a friend of mine back home covered it. Here is that version...sort of

I was about to call this silly, but really, it might be the least-silly cover of this song I've heard.

Whoa. It sounds like being crazy, in the best way possible.

This is great.

as a side note, the best blackmail is always the kind people give to you freely.

Great. I love the sloppy, kind of mushmouth language you've invented here.
