The black-and-white footage and animation in this video was actually the inspiration for the animation of "Take On Me." It originated as an art project for college, and went on to influence the generation of MTV.

The lyrics for this song were based on the existentialist authors and poets Hofmo, Hamsun and Dostoevski - Paul's favorites at the time.

"Train of Thought" was released as the third single from the debut album "Hunting High and Low" on 24 March 1986.

The video concept was designed by the same producers who brought "Take On Me" into the video mainstream.

Most of the video was old footage with animation. The live parts with the band were filmed during a break in the band's tour.
