Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Enola gay

"Enola Gay" is a song by British synthpop band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. It was written by frontman Andy McCluskey, and appears on the band's second album, Organisation (DinDisc/Virgin, 1980). It was released as a 7" single on 26 September 1980, and reached number 8 in the UK chart, also topping the charts in several European countries.

The song has been covered several times in 2007. Swedish artist Sommarkillen made a cover of the song called Sommartjej with new Swedish lyrics; the Danish electro-pop trio, Oliver North Boy Choir (formerly called Pierre)also recorded it. This track was posted on many MP3 blogs. In June 2007, José Galisteo released his cover of it on his debut album, Remember.

The song is named for the USAAF B-29 Superfortress which dropped the "Little Boy" atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945, ostensibly to bring an end to the Second World War.
