OMD - Forever Live And Die (12 Inch Extended Mix)
In fact, their musical career was a bit of a rollercoaster ride during the eighties. Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark achieved success with twelve British Top 40 singles overall during the 80s, their highest-charting single being Souvenir in 1981 - not a bad achievement!
However, they did make a comeback in 1991 with the release of their Sugar Tax album (I bought an official T-shirt at a concert in Milton Keynes!) with two Top Ten singles. The album was packed with catchy pop tunes and also a wonderful cover version of Kraftwerk's Neon Lights.
