"Enola Gay (Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark cover)" as written by and Andrew Mc Cluskey....
Enola Gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday
Ah-ha, words can't describe the feeling and the way you lied

These games you play
They're going to end in more than tears some day
Ah-ha, Enola Gay, it shouldn't ever have to end this way

It's 8:15 and that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio
Conditions normal and you're coming home

Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today?
Ah-ha, this kiss you give, it's never going to fade away

Enola Gay, it shouldn't ever have to end this way
Ah-ha, Enola Gay, it shouldn't fade in our dreams away

It's 8:15 and that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio
Conditions normal and you're coming home

Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today?
Ah-ha, this kiss you give, it's never ever going to fade away

    General Commenti've waited for a cover by the faint of this stature...the simple pop quality of omd's original version is still in this cover...new wave will never die

    General CommentThis song was originally performed by the British duo Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark. Great song, great band, great cover.

    General Commentthis song is most likely just a straightforward song about the plane enola gay and the bombing of hiroshima. i like both versions of the song, but i prefer OMD's version.
