BEST COVERS OF JOY DIVISION'S "LOVE WILL TEAR US APART"
A list pulled from my 2015 drafts because the timing just felt right. Everything must measure up to this: http://youtu.be/zuuObGsB0No
- 1.Fall Out Boyhttp://youtu.be/kzCJkm711rk [I was prepared to be unimpressed because of the American accent, but those drums though! 🇺🇸🙋🏻]
- 2.David Gahan (from Depeche Mode)http://youtu.be/5Ne1usQOVE8 [So sassy! Rock that Vest-No-Shirt look 💖 To the guy who exclaims, "No way!"--I feel you.]
- 3.Bushhttp://youtu.be/Ts5S24Q5zHI [The recording is good, but I'm still #TeamGwen.]
- 4.Nouvelle Vaguehttp://youtu.be/8oWO7Om17v0 [I'll be on my yacht off a European coast sipping champagne.]
- 5.The Curehttp://youtu.be/Kc1TZ-VSjj4 [If I didn't know it was a Joy Division song, I'd wonder if it was a new Cure song.]
- 6.? David Bowie
- 7.Thom Yorkehttp://youtu.be/0JgZVgeA1Mw [It's grainy and grungy and just how I'd have liked it circa 1995]
- 8.Iggy Pop and Bernard Sumner (from New Order)http://youtu.be/Vf2l9fujhco [An okay cover]
- 9.Susanna and the Magical Orchestrahttp://youtu.be/sHhVydgvuAc [Pretty voice, but I prefer a more real sound. Also, I don't think this song was meant to be played that slow.]
- 10.Psst... "and then he kissed me"
