Walking on the Milky Way

Arguably the most accomplished single of solo-Andy McCluskey era Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark, the widescreen "Walking on the Milky Way" was a respectable hit for the veteran synth-pop outfit back in 1996. It also signalled a slight shift in the OMD sound: instead of relying on those trusty analogue synths of yore, McCluskey opted to adopt a more organic sound, incorporating a orchestra strings, emotive backing vocals and earthy Hammond organ grooves. Check out the highly cinematic and slightly surreal promo here.
