Welcome to Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark Week or OMD Week for short! OMD is my all-time favorite band from the 80s. I absolutely love all aspects of their songwriting and artistry. They mix acoustic and electric instruments brilliantly. They mix uplifting and melancholic themes perfectly. They embody everything about the decade so well. From fashion to musicality to culture, OMD really captured what it was like to live in the 80s.
While their megahit "If You Leave" is definitely my favorite from them (you can see my cover of that song here), they have so many other great hits as well as amazing B-Sides, and I will try to cover some of my favorites this week.
Up first is the hit song, "Secret" which was featured in the Arthur 2 Soundtrack (not a particularly memorable movie IMO). Definitely one of my favorite songs of theirs and I hope you enjoy my singing and drumming on it!
Tune in tomorrow for Part 2!
