OMD, “Decimal”


This tune from OMD’s 2013 album harks all the way back to 1981’s “Time Zones.” In 1981, the telephone time clock was ubiquitous in many countries. In 2013, voicemail is ubiquitous. Word of the day – “ubiquitous.”

Personally, I like the stark mechanicalness of “Time Zones,” versus the more human-sounding “Decimal.”
