This song is pure nostalgia for me. Growing up in the eighties, this is one song that never seems to grow old on me. Morten Harket’s vocal range is just phenomenal, and there’s not many who can hit those notes in the chorus of the original song.
This particular version of the song is one I first heard used in the movie, Deadpool 2. I later found out it was recorded as part of an MTV unplugged concert. If you’re an A-HA fan and haven’t checked out that album, go find it on any of the streaming platforms. Amazing.
This is one of my favorite Jon Foreman songs, and it’s based on words spoken by Amos, an old testament prophet. They are so applicable to today in many ways. You only have to skim over some “discussions” on social media platforms to see how distracted we have become with ourselves while ignoring the world’s injustices.
You may or may not have noticed, the tag-line for my blog is “I like running and singing, but not at the same time…”. It’s been a while since I posted any music videos, but I’ve started to make an effort recently to get back to playing and recording more frequently.
Here is a cover of a U2 song, called “One”.
I’ll have a couple more songs coming soon, including some collaboration projects I’m really excited about. Stay tuned…
