Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Genetic Engineering / Telegraph (Canada 12″)

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

“Genetic Engineering” is a song by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, released as the first single from their fourth studio album Dazzle Ships. Frontman Andy McCluskey has noted that the song is not an attack on genetic engineering, as many assumed at the time, including veteran radio presenter Dave Lee Travis upon playing the song on BBC Radio 1. McCluskey stated: “I was very positive about the subject. People didn’t listen to the lyrics…I think they automatically assumed it would be anti.”

Charting at number 20 on the UK Singles Chart, “Genetic Engineering” ended the band’s run of four consecutive Top 10 hits in the UK. It was also a Top 20 hit in several European territories, and peaked at number 5 in Spain. It missed the United States Billboard Hot 100 but made number 32 on the Mainstream Rock chart. US critic Ned Raggett lauded the “soaring”, “enjoyable” single in a positive review of Dazzle Ships for AllMusic, asserting: “Why it wasn’t a hit remains a mystery.”

Critics in prominent music publications have suggested that the first 45 seconds of the song were a direct influence on Radiohead’s “Fitter Happier”, which appears on that band’s 1997 album OK Computer. Theon Weber in Stylus argued that the Radiohead track is “deeply indebted” to “Genetic Engineering”.

Eurythmics – Right By Your Side (Canada 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st August 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

“Right by Your Side” is a song by the British pop duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, and produced by Stewart. The track was released as the second single in the UK from Eurythmics’ third album Touch.

“Right by Your Side” was something of a departure from previous Eurythmics songs, and is an uptempo love song which features a calypso music instrumental backdrop, complete with synthesized steel drum and marimba sounds and a horn section.

“Right by Your Side” became the fourth consecutive Eurythmics single to hit the Top 10 of the UK singles chart during 1983. It also climbed to number 29 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

“Plus Someting Else” is an instrumental/dub mix of the song “Regrets”; this version was included as a bonust track on the 2005 CD remaster of the album Touch. Shemefully the CD version does not include the full outro and is faded out nearly ten seconds early.
