Confirmed -- it was the flipside of the Blue Monday 12, with the cover that looked like an old-school floppy disc. Wish I could figure out where my copy is.

This track as the cd sleeve states came out on 3/83. Same time as blue monday. Together on vinyl as stated by posts. Such a great band,they always stated they lost so many great tunes that they crafted in sessions because the digital recorder did not replay (lost) great demos created? Such a shame.....

Oh yeah i used to mix New Order real good my parties were jamming they always get the dance floor hot

This song, not really remix because is was crafted ground up, not only from recorded material samples, is a root of all EBM. Sure, Cab. VOLTAIRE, Yello, are older but New Order, MODE, got it out from raves and clubs to the general population.

It's not an instrumental version but rather a follow up. While they both sound quite similar. there are some noticeable differences between them.

Guys...The Beach is what the b-side of Blue Monday is called.

Sick. Why am I listening to this ....it intensifies nausea.

Oh well, I should continue with my journey into complete oblivion.

I believe I see the bigger - the actual big picture. In your shoes I see a 360° that looks like free imprisonment . You have a lot of proving to the world to do... whether the inner world Reqs proof or not, idk & idc...

The world has Reqs for all..... Underground is where I live. It's where I plan to stay.

Put on the suit. Wear it well. Say & all the right things.

Late 90's leaving the NYC club at 5:30 in the morning, cold Manhattan air hits my lungs and it's time to hit the dinner in Jersey... Wish I has it back for one more weekend!

Ah the 80s. An age where we realized, off the bat, we were listening to a remix of a song, rather than complain mightily that someone got the title wrong.

Glad I survived the 80's by the way.

By far my favorite 80s techno hit...pure and simple

People, it's very simple. This is a remix of Blue Monday. The remix is called The Beach. End of story. Any questions? Too bad. Move along.

Sounds like Blue Monday.

I like the original, this is a dance mix! ARRRRGH! but I would probably dance to it anyway. thumbs up but gets forewarded about half way through..Syn t h was cool back in 80's but kind of overdone by now. Kill me with the drum machine will you!?

I heard lyrics. They are heavily synthesized.
Report as inappropriate
Why would they have this instrumental version of the song labled as having 'abstract lyrics'?
Report as inappropriate
It's interesting how some songs that have a "B-side" are sometimes titled differently than the "A-sides." I guess it's sort of like how "The Horse" is the B-side to "Love Is All Right" from Cliff Nobles.

Regardless of the title - GREAT SONG!

actually 'The Beach' is correctly titled - it's an instrumental remix of Blue Monday that was a b-side.

yes - I think they have the titles messed up - the song Beach is definitely Blue Monday! hello Pandora????
