For Ian And His Next Two Hitchhikers

Aah Joy Division. Right before their big American break-through (fueled by the hitsingle Love Will Tear Us Apart) lead-singer Ian Curtis had to go and commit suicide, thus laying the foundations for New Order whose Blue Monday is forever etched in my mind thanks to my older sister’s New Wave obsession at the time.

In commemoration: 30+ versions of Love Will Tear Us Apart.

(With thanks to Bernard, who seriously needs to set up his own weblog ASAP)

    I don’t know, but if you want an example of a parody of the song “Love Will Keep Us Together” why not check out the live cover of that song by The Tubes from T*R*A*S*H ?

    Just one play, no : listen list I discovered, iconolast:
