"Take on Me" is a 1985 synthpop song by the Norwegian pop band a-ha.

It was first released in 1984, and was mixed by Tony Mansfield, but did not sell well in the United Kingdom. The song was re-recorded and re-released in 1985. A music video was made, which was shown on television a lot. This helped the song to become very popular.
