Fandango’s One Word Challenge (25 August 2020)

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 24 August, 2020, somewhere.

Repeating Myself?

Before I start, I presented this song a few months ago, then pulled the post. I do not habitually pull posts once they are live, in fact this was the only one I ever pulled. The result is that you might have heard this song, in which case, don’t waste your time, move on to your next post.


I presented this song for an SLS entry, but somebody complained to me that they thought the post was off-topic. As the post (any posts of this type) was just sharing a link to a bit of music, designed simply to entertain people for a few minutes, hopefully bring back a memory and raise a smile, it wasn’t the end of the world for me if I skipped it altogether. I decided it was best just to pull the post rather than risk anybody else getting upset.

At the time I pulled it, my post had a couple dozen views so the upshot is that some of you might have already seen me post this tune. If so, I’m sorry to bug you with this song again. Just skip the rest of this post.

Anyway, back on track, I do like this version of the song, so decided to repost it, independent of any prompt. I’m sure we all know the tune itself – it went #1 most everywhere in 1985 (although not the UK).

What I didn’t realise was that A-ha released an “unplugged” album, and this song is the last track. I thought it was lovely.
