Back in the mid-eighties, a music video came out that perfectly captured what my young mind thought romance ought to be: dramatic, urgent, star-crossed…semi-animated. Partially set in a diner, partially set inside a comic book. Dripping with synth. Do take a couple minutes to travel back to 1984 for A-ha’s Take On Me, the most romantic music video ever. So worth the short ad, considering my best friend and I used to wait hours for this to come on MTV.
P.S. Did anyone else think he was hotter as a cartoon?
