4:39 New Order – Truth (1981)

Oh, it’s a strange day
In such a lonely way
I saw some children dance
I watched my life in a trance

On some days there are hardly any good songs to choose from on others like today the choice is extremely hard. I was torn in between Us3’s Cantaloop („it’s funky, funky“ and the great Cocteau Twins night time ditty Oils of Angels. In the end I went for another song from New Order’s debut Movement. Peter Hook who was one of the first bassists in the rock circus to use his instrument to play the lead starts the song with a cool bass line. The haunting synthesizer sounds, the tribal drum programming, the occasional guitar noise, Barney’s singing, everything is perfect in this song by a band which still sounds a lot like their first incarnation but is already on the way to new shores.
