"Take On Me" as written by Magne (mags) Furuholmen, Pal Waaktaar and Morten Harket....
Talking away
I don't know what
what to say - I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away I'll be coming for your love
Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone In a day
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
And you see me stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry
Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone in a day
Oh the things that you say
Is it life or Just to play my worries away
All the things I've got to remember
Shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway
Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone in a day

    General CommentMxPx did in fact cover this song, along with 7 other cover songs on their album "On the Cover"

    I thought they did a good job with this one, it's one of the better covers on that CD, so take that how you want to.

    General CommentUm, guys. This is an A-ha cover. I'm listening to the song right now and this is the exacty song, so yes this is a cover. and A-ha origionally had this song plus they were around before MXPX.

    Don't believe me? Look up "Take on me" for titles (do a search) and some people write (aha cover) which it is, but this guy didn't give credit tothe guys. obviously because he didnt remember them.

    Think back to the 80s early 90s. im not sure when this video came out. it took place in a diner, and some womans reading a comic and theres a good looking guy in it an d he starts moving and she gets sucked into the comic and its this whole big thing. Too bad they dont play it any more. it was good.
