BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
“Blue Monday” is a single released in 1983 by British band New Order, later remixed in 1988 and 1995. The song has been widely remixed and covered since its original release, and became a popular anthem in the dance club scene. It is the biggest-selling 12″ single of all time.
“Blue Monday” has been a hit several times in the UK. In 1983, it charted twice, initially reaching number 12, then re-entering the chart later in the year and climbing to number 9, helped by the fact that neither side of the single (the B-side “The Beach” was an instrumental re-working of “Blue Monday”) was featured on the UK version of the group’s subsequent album, Power, Corruption & Lies.
In the United States “Blue Monday” debuted on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart on March 26, 1983 peaking at #5 after spending twenty weeks on the survey.
