Norway has produced Henrik Ibsen, Edvards Grieg & Munch, and a whole lot of guys named Thor, but none of them has had more lasting impact than a-ha's "Take On Me". Who were a-ha? What the høëk was going on in that video? How did one Norwegian change your Japanese dining experience forever? Host Joe Dator and returning guest Paul Castiglia brave the fjords and possible moose bites to take on this 80s pop classic.

In the 80s, while Pac Men roamed the Earth and Valley Girls were busy gagging on spoons, the serendipitously named Billy Idol gave the decade one of its most iconic hits, "White Wedding". Ostensibly a song about Billy's sister's wedding, but definitely not about Billy's sister's wedding, the song has baffled archaeologists for three decades. Now, Joe Dator tries to decide if he should throw guest Paul Castiglia the Idol, or if it belongs in a museum.
