A-ha's stripped down version of ‘Take On Me’ is hauntingly beautiful

“Take On Me” by A-ha is one of the 1980s’ most remembered songs, not only for its fast-paced beat but also because of that iconic video, which featured a pencil-sketch animation theme (called rotoscoping) and live action featuring lead singer Morten Harket and his then-girlfriend, actress Bunty Bailey.

It reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in October 1985 and won six awards at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards.

But take away the fast tempo and the synthesizers and that catchy riff and what do you get? A stripped-down, acoustic version of the hit that the Norwegian-based group played earlier this month on an “MTV Unplugged” show at Giske Harbour Hall in Norway.

On “MTV Unplugged,” the song is slow and performed in a style vaguely reminiscent of the 1960s rock ’n’ roll band Vanilla Fudge, which took fast-paced songs and sang them at an excruciatingly slow tempo. The Ah-ha acoustic version is less psychedelic and is sung quietly -- almost reverently.

Many purists will prefer the version that bubbled through the radio and television during the 1980s, but the new arrangement is certainly haunting.

Oh, JibJab, you’re not fine: Toni Basil sues over use of “Mickey” 

Toni Basil thinks that JibJab’s use of her No. 1 hit “Mickey” is not so fine.

The singer-choreographer, whose one-hit wonder “Mickey” has been a staple on music video channels since it debuted in 1982, is suing the digital entertainment studio, TMZ reported.

According to the lawsuit, Basil, whose real name is Antonia Christina Basilotta, charges that JibJab used her voice, image and likeness when it released a “Mickey” video promo in February for its musical e-cardss, TMZ reported. She also charged that JibJab did not verify who owned the musical rights to “Mickey,” and that the company used the e-card it designed as a promotional ad to entice customers to subscribe to its other products and services.

Basil, 73, said in the lawsuit that she has become "despondent and physically ill" over JibJab’s actions and now suffers from sleep deprivation, nightmares and anxiety. She is suing for damages, lost profits and emotional stress, TMZ reported.

JibJab claims it did obtain a license for the video, but honored her request to take it down once it learned she was in a separate dispute over the rights, TMZ reported.

“Mickey” was released as a single in September 1982 and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 two months later. It was certified gold and in early 1983 hit platinum for sales of more than two million copies in the United States, according to Billboard. The music video for the song was an early favorite on MTV.

The 10-episode, half-hour series, tentatively called “Cobra Kai,” reunites original “Karate Kid” stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. The series is set 30 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Zabka, reprising his role as Johnny Lawrence, seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, Variety reported. That rekindles his rivalry with the now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to manage life without Miyagi (Pat Morita). Morita passed away in 2005. 

"The humor comes from two guys, who at 50 years old, still have an ax to grind," Macchio (now 55) said at the Television Critics Association on Friday. Johnny "just can't let go; he's still a teenager at heart."

“The minute I heard about this project, I knew we had to have it. ‘The Karate Kid’ became an instant classic in the 1980s, and still resonates with audiences around the world and on YouTube today,” Susanne Daniels, global head of original content for YouTube, told Variety.

Last month, the video won the title as the most-streamed song of all time, with more than 4.6 billion streams on combined platforms, Time reported. On Friday, "Despacito" beat out Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's “Fast and Furious” anthem "See You Again" for the top spot with nearly 3 billion views. "See You Again" had taken over from the longtime favorite "Gangnam Style" last month.

In a video message sent to Time from Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee honored the record-breaking success of the song.

"Thank you, YouTube for 'Despacito's success. I recognize the influence that the platform has," he said. "The music industry has changed. The rules of music have changed. And YouTube has a big responsibility, and I recognize it. Breaking a record is overwhelming, and I'm happy to keep inspiring others to do the same," he said.

The song debuted on YouTube in January 2017. It is currently in its 12th straight week atop Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart.

Video shows cute pug found napping in baby seat

Sometimes new babies and pets don't mix, but one pug is defying the odds in his family.

A video uploaded by David Freiheit, who goes by Viva Frei on YouTube and across social media, shows his pug Baboo, who is blind, snoozing a way in a baby seat.

The pup was comfy and cozy in the seat.

"It's, like, perfect. It's the perfect size," Freiheit's wife said.

"You're the cutest thing," Freiheit tells the pup.

The video captures little shots of the dog napping away and the end shows him making a few attempts to get out.

Eventually, Babbo is successful.

"Given the proximity of his butt to the pillow, we will have to wash this before putting the baby back into it," Freiheit said in the video description.
