Update March 29
‘Feel this Moment’ is up to #8 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #1 in the Billboard Electronic/Dance chart. Last Saturday, Pitbull and Christina Aguilera opened the Nickelodeon Kids Choice awards with ‘Feel this Moment’.
Magne says about the song, ‘I find it quite amusing that the ‘Take on me’ riff is touring the world in 2013 without us, although I am of course very attached to the original and hardly objective.’
Almost 30 years after its initial release, the keyboard riff from ‘Take on Me’ enters the Billboard US Top 20 at #13 – with a bullet! The song is also at #3 in the iTunes chart.
As the more observant among you have no doubt already noticed, the song titled ‘Feel this Moment’ by Pitbull / aka Mr. Worldwide and featuring Christina Aguilera is based pretty much entirely on Magne’s iconinc riff for ‘Take on Me’.
This song is now riding high in the US charts, and creating massive excitement in stadiums around the world. As such this introduces ‘Take on Me’ and hopefully a-ha to a whole new generation of music fans worldwide.
Here is the video for the song, which premiered yesterday:
