So today is starting off on the wrong foot, which is all I need to say. Nevertheless, any personal anecdote is best amended with a tune, and I couldn’t think of anything better than “Blue Monday.” As a kid (and I’m dating myself) I remember Orgy’s cover of New Order’s version. The New Order version is mellowed in comparison to Orgy’s rev’d-rock version, so it’s hard to say which I prefer at this moment. Your thoughts?
New Order: “Blue Monday”
Orgy: “Blue Monday”
