Inarguable Pop Classics #4: New Order – True Faith

It’s an oft-repeated fact that New Orders’s ‘Blue Monday’ was the biggest selling 12 inch vinyl record of all time, and one that lost a penny for every copy sold, due to the chaotic financial acumen of Tony Wilson and his situationalist cohorts at Factory Records. But this was the first New Order song I ever got into, a huge hit for the band, and a defining video of the 80s MTV era. Whether it’s about the disillusionment of growing up, or coming down off Ecstasy, a brilliant record.
