Hottest 100 - New Order, Blue Monday

Ranked #32 hottest song of all time. Released in 1983. A song from my youth! As a wee lad I'd stay up watching Rage all night, and this song would always be on. Though that was probably the 1988 remix that I can remember.

This is the band that used to be Joy Division, which was previously covered here. And you can hear the inexorable slide from punk into electronic dance crap, this one being more of the latter.

The title "Blue Monday" doesn't have much to do with the song, and was in fact some kind of coding for the single release that doubled as the song's name, or something equally dull. I don't know, just listen to the song, it's all right.
