Take me on




I have been singing this song all week. Someone please get it out of my head. Maybe if I suggest it to you my A-ha earworms will move on? The video is worth a watch – Morten Harket stretches his hand out of a comic book and pulls the reader, a lovely young woman, inside. The drawing is amazing, but apparently it’s done with a technique called rotoscoping – drawing over live-action footage, frame by frame.

Do I have any readers in Raglan? If so, come and see me not this Saturday but next, at the Word Café, talking about Mansfield and Me.

    Curses Sarah – now I’ve got an A-Ha earworm too! I’m very much looking forward to seeing you at Word Cafe next weekend as well. (I’m speaking about judging award winning books, with Maria Gill.) Can I get my copy of ‘Mansfield and me’ signed?

    That song always get stuck in my head. Only thing worse, is when I get, You Can Call Me Al stuck in my head.

    I’m 24 (born 1992) so I think I was born close enough to the 80s to appreciate it but people always wonder how I know a song “before my time”
    My brother and sister were born in 77 and 79 so I inherited their tastes in alot of things.
    I’d much rather have 80s ear worms than listen to today’s radio most of the time anyway!
