Eeeek! One of my favorite songs/videos of the 1980s has hit over ONE BILLION views on YouTube! Take On Me was released in 1985 by Norwegian pop-trio A-ha (Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen, and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy). In 1986, the video won six MTV Music Awards. It was added to YouTube in 2010 and this year has been averaging 480,000 views a day.
