Blue Monday by New Order, Released 25 Years Ago

The original version of the New Order song “Blue Monday” was released 25 years ago. Man, that makes me feel old. Regardless, it still holds up well after all of these years.

Here’s the original 1983 “Blue Monday” music video (look for Zaxxon cameo) and the video for “Blue Monday ’88” (the version remixed by Quincy Jones) from the Substance video collection.

Here are a live version of “Blue Monday” from 1984 from the Estoc de Pop in Barcelona. YouTube is still such a great place to dig up great videos like this.
