T humbing through the spotty collection at CUA yielded this souvenir, which has always been one of my favorites. OMD, IMO, peaked with this and “Joan of Arc.” Apres ces, le deletere. The 7-inch single included two tracks on the back: Motion & Heart in its Amazon version, which reminds me of The Residents, and the ethereal, familiar “Sacred Heart,” which seems to suggest someone had a madonna (not the singer) complex. “Sacred Heart” later appeared on Navigation: The OMD B-Sides.
