Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Electricity”

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark – Joni Mitchell

What a catchy little synth hook this song has! And I love the video, with its soon-to-be-cliché mixture of performance video and retro film of society marching to the future!


She don’t know the system Plus
She don’t understand
She’s got all the wrong fuses and splices
She’s not going to fix it up
Too easy

Oh, I get it – she’s not really talking about electricity.

From her follow-up to Blue, 1972’s For the Roses.
