Repeating Myself?

Image showing musical notes on a stave.

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.

  2. This is weird. Β I had not heard this song in years and then last week my granddaughter was blasting it in her car as we drove to the cleaners. Β Naturally we sang along full blast!

  3. First time I’ve heard this unplugged and slowed down, though I hear the song on the radio all the time. I used to watch the unplugged show, and really liked a lot of the songs. πŸ™‚

    1. there was a show? I don’t think we ever got that. I did get 3 or 4 “unplugged” CDs and of course now we have global things like Spotify. I found a sew unplugged playlists on there.


  4. Love EVERY version of this song. Love movies so I especially love the this slower β€˜Deadpool 2’ version but equally love the faster β€˜Ready player one version’ … agree with blindzanygirl. Thank you for posting

    1. Yes I think someone else said that, too, so you’re probably right. I never saw that film. I think there might have been an old Clint Eastwood Dirty Harry film subtitled Dead Pool but that’s as close as I get! Showing my age…

      1. You’re not old, besides, age is just a number πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I am not that young by the way… I just have tons of pop culture references πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        It’s a nice film… not the typical superhero movie… you ‘should’ try it!

    1. Thanks very much. I’ll have to check it out properly later. I do what’s called a “telephone befriending” thing for a charity – so am looking forward to spending this afternoon on the phone. Let’s see how much energy I have left afterwards.
