i had never heard of Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark until this normal song vs chiptune came out regarding one of their songs versus a song from the Japanese 1988 Famicom American presidential race game.
joke? probably, consider it is a song based on a plane that nuked the country that the game was made in. but it opened my mind to a genre that i never knew existed; or at least, never new existed so early and so catchy in recent musical history. to be clear, the song used came out in 1980.
[please ignore stupid video i had to use because the official one wouldn't embed]
as i listen to more and more of OMD, i get increasingly obsessed. i'd post more in this thread if i could post more than 2 Youtube videos, but alas, i cannot.
i'm sure they were not entirely unique in their sound or style. but what other musical acts were/are similar that you enjoy?

Not necessarily the exact same template as OMD, but super bad ass and crazy catchy Synthpop all the same. I'd kind of say it's more like Michael Jackson with less funk, and more jazz, played with some great synths.

I've posted this before, but it really should have been in this thread all a long. Stand up drummers should make a big come back, starting now.
Don't let the rainbows fade to gray. My sensuality has taken hold on me, and love is the answer.
