[ # ] Weezer takes on Take On Me
February 12th, 2019 under Weezer

I don’t think there is any debate that a-ha’s Take On Me is one of the greatest music videos ever made. Right up there with Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about Weezer. The band recently released the Teal (you know they have released too many color albums when they are up to ugly sounding colors) Album which is a CD full of covers. One of them is that song and they shot a music video of it. Now, no one can recreate the original brilliance. Family Guy came close, but there was still not an a-ha moment. A-hahahahahah!

Sorry, got distracted. Anyways, Weezer wanted to capture part of that spirit but they had to make it their own. For Buddy Holly, they took it back to Happy Days, and for this one they went back to the year 1985. That was the year when everyone was singing the song and hoping that their comic books would come alive. For Rivers Cuomo, it meant jamming with his friends and belting out the song all the teens were singing.

While some of the frames were animated, most were just retro and what it looked like when music was at its prime. Yeah, the ’80s were like totally awesome. Although as the band reminded us, the hair was so not like cool. What was Flock of Seagulls thinking?

Forgetting about all of that, this video is like a totally tubular video that is like one Weezer’s best!
