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.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas weekend and enjoys some quality time with friends and family. Rest, rest and more rest. That’s my plan for the next week. Of course, a little running will be woven in here and there!
Here’s a wee video I recorded over six years ago now! How time flies! Enjoy!
