Orchestral Manouevers In The Dark - Walking On The Milky Way

"Walking On The Milky Way" was Orchestral Manouevers In The Dark's last UK Top 40 hit when it was released in 1996, and simultaneously their biggest hit and first Top 20 entry in more than five years. Only a few months later, Andy McCluskey who had run the outfit alone since his original partner Paul Humphreys left in 1989, dissolved OMD entirely, but the pair reunited in 2006 and have released two albums since, both of them pretty good. More a synth-pop band than anything else, OMD surprised people with "Walking On The Milky Way" which is more chamber-pop in the vein of mid-period Beatles and quite possibly also the reason for the single's success. It still sounds fresh, 18 years on.
