In 1984, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) released their new album Junk Culture. The first single of the album was this song, which combines an uptempo rhythm with some more ‘negative’ lyrics. It was recorded in the last week of recording, with a steel drum and the manager of the group playing bass and piano. In the Netherlands, in the Wisseloord Studio’s, the song was mixed. The song made it to number 5 in the UK and the Netherlands. Enjoy
