Astrophysics celebrates Valentine’s Day with a music video and cover of the overplayed but still catchy A-Ha track Take on Me. Taking on lead vocal duties is synthetic singer Hatsune Miku, one of the few musical artists capable of hitting the same high notes as A-ha’s Morten Harket.
Vocalist Jared Halley is an expert at creating multi-track recordings of his own voice, demonstrating his excellent vocal range and harmonic abilities. Sure, we’ve heard dozens of covers of A-Ha’s 1985 hit Take on Me, but we’re still not sick of it, so here you go.
San Antonio, Texas performers Mariachi Entertainment System take on A-ha’s classic with a bit of Latino flavor. Not only is their instrumentation wonderful, but their vocalist even nails the tricky falsetto bits. Bonus points for playing Flight of the Bumblebee while holding a toddler.
We love the way that Lake Street Dive incorporates the trumpet and swinging rhythms into their cover version of the 1985 A-ha classic, which we’re so used to hearing played on synthesizers. We’re also impressed with vocalist Rachael Price’s ability to hit that high note.
