“Joan of Arc (Maid of Orleans)” by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark

9 07 2013

Here’s a music video for OMD’s “Joan of Arc (Maid of Orleans)”, released in 1981.

I’m not exactly sure what story this video is telling, but it is kind of interesting (though they could have avoided the temptation to do flash cuts to match the drum rolls). And I can never watch a video from this era without thinking of how much all the participants have aged. But I loved this song when it first came out, and I still love it – I was lucky enough to get to see them perform it live in Waterloo in 1982.

OMD have apparently reformed with their original lineup, and are touring – in fact, they’re in Toronto twice this month.
