so we found this CDR between two disused shelves in a room of this house that we're just getting around to setting up

so far, in the first 8 of 16 tracks, there are at least three covers of a-ha's "take on me", one reminiscent of kate bush, one styled like idk kinda mid 2000s high school movie pop idk?, and one that's oddly wistful a cappella with ukulele accompaniment

update: track 9, too

sort of like super chill billie eilish?

someone who lived here in the past was super into "take on me" apparently

Show thread

why are there this many covers of "take on me", is the real question here

Show thread

@pagrus tbh all of these are best Take On Me

track 5 identifies as cheery smooth demipunk and is out here living their best life as hard as they can

track 6 identifies as hard af headbang punk and absolutely could not give less of a fuck what anyone thinks

they're themfriends

@alexis I mean I like ska as much as or possibly more than the next person but the best cover I ever heard was by a (possibly christian?) (possibly italian?) speed metal band in 1999. I don't know a lot about music but I know I like arpeggiation and they had a bunch of that

@alexis I am not christian and ordinarily have no use for christian metal or any other kind of music btw, but these dudes shredded s o h a r d
