Song of the Day: Blue Monday

Today’s song is Blue Monday by Orgy.

If you want the synth-heavy ’83 original by New Order, here ya go.
Instead, I’m focusing on the one that wanted to chew bubble gum and kick ass.
You know, the one with the industrial/ nu-metal elements that is somehow both dated and classic.

Those who came before me live through their vocations.

The ‘static’ sound really adds a lot and focuses on the darker tone of the lyrics.

This may be the best song that took something so distinctly ’80s and made it a perfect fit to encapsulate the ’90.

Disregard it. Enjoy it. Love it. Hate it.
I don’t care.
Just tell me, how does it feel?
