OMD – Enola Gay (Leaping Ahead #163)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #163: 160611

[Favourite 80’s song (6)]

The only single from their 1980 album, “Organisation”, ‘Enola Gay’ was written by Andy McCluskey and addresses the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945, during the final stages of World War II. Enola Gay was the name of the Boeing B-29 flying fortress which dropped the nuclear weapon ‘Little Boy’ on Hiroshima at 08:15 that morning.
