Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - "New Stone Age"

Yeah, I know the politics of this song are hopelessly naïve leftist nuclear-freeze drivel of the sort that could have lost us the Cold War, but it's only rock and roll. My favorite song in the extensive Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark catalog is the lead-off track from their landmark Architecture & Morality record, "New Stone Age."

Maybe it's the staccato electronics, or the nervous energy of Andy McCluskey's singing, or the the urgency of the synth lead, this is an arresting song that compels the listener to pay attention. It is the most dissonant song in the OMD catalog. Not only that, it is probably the most dissonant song in my entire CD collection that nonethless remains pure hook-ridden pop. It is the most dissonant song o' the day so far.
