Music video by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark performing Telegraph. (P) 1983 The copyright in this audiovisual recording is owned by Virgin Records Ltd

"Telegraph" is a song by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released as the second single from their studio album Dazzle Ships. "Telegraph" had originally been considered as the first release, but not being happy with the mix and, with pressure from Virgin, the band opted for "Genetic Engineering" instead.

The song was first recorded in 1981 at The Manor studios and had been under consideration for the Architecture & Morality album. The lyrics on the original 1981 version and the 1983 version are different in places, reflecting the harder edge the original version presented. The 1981 version was released on the 2008 re-released Dazzle Ships album as an extra track.

The original inspiration for "Telegraph" came from Andy McCluskey's strong feelings against politics and religion at the time. These motifs were weakened for the version on Dazzle Ships.
