A-ha - Take On Me (1984 Single).jpg

The 1984 single cover of Take On Me.

Status: Partially Lost

A-ha is a famous Norwegian Synth-pop trio that is best remembered as the creators of their 1985 hit song Take On Me. Some of their other hits include The Sun Always Shines On T.V., Cry Wolf, and The Living Daylights The band was formed in 1982 and is still around. The band has 10 albums and is one of the most successful Norwegian bands.

Lost Instrumental

Their most famous song, Take On Me was originally known to have four different versions before the song we all know today, all of the earlier versions have been released on either a single or box set excluding one (which remains partially found). However, there is a Norwegian documentary from 2005, which has a clip in it with this lost instrumental.

Availability

The only possibilities of this being found is either if the NRK station has the full demo in its archives, or if Viggo Bondi, the man responsible for their 2004 album, "The Demo Tapes" has a copy.[1]

On October 7th, 2019, Lost Media Wiki User YoshiKiller2S used a website called PhonicMind.com (a website that can professionally isolate vocals and instrumentals from any song) to remove the vocals from a different officially released take with vocals, leaving the full instrumental. With the take used in YoshiKiller's instrumental being different to the one in the documentary, it has some differences, but so far, this is the closest the public has to the full original instrumental.
