“Take On Me” hits n1 in the UK
In further news, “Take On Me” has hit the number 1 spot in the UK Physical Singles Chart via the re-release as an exclusive, limited edition coloured 7” vinyl.
Although “Take On Me” went to number 1 in many countries back in 1985, it did not reach the top of the chart in the UK – until now. The blue 7” vinyl includes “Take On Me” as produced by Alan Tarney and “Take On Me” in the 1984 version in an alternate mix, produced by Tony Mansfield.
