Blue Monday: 30 Years Ago!

Today 30 years ago New Order released the most brilliant and amazing dance song ever from their transformative LP Power, Corruption and Lies in 1983.  The song wasn't originally included on the LP until later. "Blue Monday" symbolized a turn of a new leaf for them as Joy Division became New Order after the suicide of legendary front man Ian Curtis.  Bernard Sumner's mourning vocals along with the pulsating synthesizers became seminal and the way for a new electronic dance movement that fused post punk with house.  "Blue Monday" has also become the biggest independent 12" dance single of all time. This timeless song can transport you physically and emotionally, still sounds  fresh and it never fails to fill any dance floor.  Pure Brilliance!  Enjoy
