Dance Club Staple: New Order's "Blue Monday"

Hosted Video

Whether you first listened to the track in 1983 or for the very first time just last week, "Blue Monday" has always sounded like the future. With its drilling drum bass that immediately jolts one awake, the single holds the title of being the top-selling 12" single in the United Kingdom. Reminiscent of the funk goodness in Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" while combining the electro-angst of Klein & M.B.O.'s "Dirty Talk," the dance hit has influenced decades of rock and dance music, still reigning as a staple of dance clubs today.
