"Take on Me" is a song by the Norwegian pop band a-ha. Written by the band members, the song was produced by Alan Tarney for the group's first studio album Hunting High and Low, released in 1985. The song combines synthpop with a varied instrumentation, which includes acoustic guitars, keyboards, drums and synthesizers.
In August 2000, British boy band a1 released a cover of "Take on Me" for their second studio album The A list. Despite being panned by music critics, who called it a "lame cover version", and a "note for note copy" that seems like "a re-release of the original"; it was commercially successful, topping the charts in Norway and the United Kingdom.
