Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

I spent a conversation in the weekend defending the music of the 1980s. A little l’esprit de l’escalier now follows. Starting in 1980, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark had already gained fame earlier in the year with their synth pop standard ‘Enola Gay’. Then came ‘Messages’ with its killer opening line, “It worries me, this kind of thing\How you hope to live alone and occupy your waking hours.” It featured on their eponymous debut. Have a great week. 1981 tomorrow.
