This Kiss You Give Is Never Going to Fade Away.

On a day like today in 1945, the first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima.
Let us take a moment of silence while thinking about the repercussions this asinine act of violence had in the world.
If the silent treatment is too much for you, take a listen to OMD's brilliant synthpop masterpiece which deals with those events under the light of a completely different approach, in this case music.
It's not a coincidence that this tune was prominently featured in the brilliant Waltz With Bashir.
Isn't it amazing how art made in reaction to historical regret usually affects other art forms?
