Music video by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark performing Locomotion. (P) 1984 The copyright in this audiovisual recording is owned by Virgin Records Ltd

"Locomotion" is a hit single recorded and released by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, and is also the first single taken from their 1984 album, Junk Culture. It is one of their most successful releases, reaching the top 10 in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.

The song was recorded in the last week during the sessions at Montserrat before overdubbing the drums at ICP Studios in Brussels. The original song was combined with a steel drum rhythm that Paul Humphreys had written the previous week and a bass line and piano that Gordian Troeller (the band's manager) contributed. The track was mixed and the brass added at Wisseloord Studios in the Netherlands. The brass arrangements were made by Tony Visconti.

The song is actually about locomotives and should not be confused with "The Loco-Motion" by Little Eva. OMD's single cover hints at the dance, whereas Little Eva's single cover showed a real locomotive.
