One good thing about these days you can watch Peter Hook demo the bass line for this on YouTube. That first album, wow. Rick, 87 or 88 isn't too bad. I think for me maybe 1984?

Love this song, and Temptation, and so many... I get retrospectiv e and happy about it. Wow, old timers like David and I, though David heard this earlier than I. I've listened since maybe '88, perhaps '87. Syd and Jake played this band and I had to have it all. And I do... Never stopped buying! LOVE New Order!

This is such a beautiful song! But did ya know that New Order had to figure out the lyrics themselves after Ian passed away? So what if what Ian was trying to say has been lost forever? And what if what was lost was even more beautiful than this song, if that's even possible? Something to ponder.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life, tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 mins. When your done press f6 an your lovers name appear on the screen in big letters, this is so scary because it actually works.

This to me transcends emotion, its happy and sad, alive and buried, this is the place I am the most happy. This will forever be the most beautiful song ever played.

The most gorgeous song there ever was. What I like even more about the studio New Order version is that they didn't change it all that much compared to the live Joy Division kind. No different lyrics , music , and even the vocals sound similar to Ian's. Beautiful.

Amazing and always will be.

I didn't know New Order or Joy Division in high school either but this somehow takes me back to that time too. I watched that documentary on JD and was really quite moved. Ian C was so far ahead of his time...true passion for his music.
