OMD 80s

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – (Forever) Live And Die

A great song from OMD, unusual in a few ways – Paul Humphreys sings the lead, it has a brass instrumental section, and the title starts with a bracket ((Bang Zoom) Baby Let’s Go Go is the only other one to be on the blog so far).

It reached UK#11 and was in the chart for the last time on this day in the 80s, at #60. It was their ninth of eleven top 20 hits they had in their ’80-’93 chart career.

In the US, this was a #19 hit, their 4th of 5 hits.

 

I never wanted another
