Orchestral Maneuvres In The Dark – Enola Gay

British new wavers, synth poppers OMD struck a darker chord on their second album in 1980, with this song. The title is the name of the airplane that dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945. We know that this was the first time an atomic bomb was used in a war, and that in this case, 100,000 were killed. The lyrics ask if such an action was necessary.
