Kygo remixes 80s band A-ha’s classic ‘Take On Me’
Continuing his slew of exclusive Apple music releases, tropical house wunderkind Kygo returns with another from the arsenal remixing a beloved 80s classic. Back in 1985, synthpop trio A-ha’s “Take On Me” topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, ruled MTV during the network’s music video prime and spread its wings into popular culture in TV shows and films like Family Guy, South Park, This Is 40 and multiple car commercials. The 23-year-old Norwegian star’s newly released rework of his fellow countrymen’s pop rock record preserves the same feel-good rhythm and falsetto vocals while jungle drums and a piano-tinged melody give it his signature chill tropical flare.
