100 Records That Shook The World, #14

Blue Monday

New Order

The record. The one that said "We are no longer Joy Division". The one that showed that 12" singles actually had a purpose beyond pointless extended versions of three-minute songs. The one that plundered from Moroder, Klein+MBO and Kraftwerk and influenced the geniuses of Detroit Techno. The one that still sounds like the future even though it's thirty years old. That record. This record. Crank up the speakers on your machine and enjoy.
