New Order – Blue Monday (1983)


Bernard Sumner

‘Blue Monday’ is widely regarded as a key bridge between synthesized disco and house music scene that would take the dance floors by storm by the end of the decade. According to Bernard Sumner, the track is a derivative of Klein + M.B.O.’s ‘Dirty Talk’, Sylvester’s ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real), ‘Donna Summer’ ‘Our Love’ and Kraftwerk’s ‘Uranium’. Whatever the source of inspiration, this was alternative dance 101. Bernard Sumner’s machine-like vocals were the icing on the cake.
