North Korean Children Cover A-Ha's "Take On Me" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It is hard to learn about what daily life in North Korea is like. Every once in a while we stumble upon a curious video of children marching in perfect unison during the "mass games" or huge crowds weeping over Kim Jong Il's death. But this video reassures us that all the distance, dictators and propaganda in the world can't stop anyone from loving 80s pop hits.

These North Korean accordionists cover the classic feel-good hit "Take On Me" and needless to say, it is amazing. It really shows off the complexity of the song's architecture... We certainly didn't know that a-ha could be so deep!

We may even like this better than our old favorite "Take On Me" YouTube sensation, the literal translation music video.

Anyway, check it out if you believe loving a-ha is a human right.
