Ever the consistent blogger, for about 8 minutes between 2006 and 2022 I ran a “Music Mondays” feature.
New Order played in Leeds last night, which was pretty cool.
The lyrics to one of their classic tracks, Blue Monday, are listed below. In case you’re wondering what they are.
New Order “Blue Monday” Lyrics
Lyrics: [Instrumental Intro] [Verse 1] How does it feel To treat me like you do? When you've laid your hands upon me And told me who you are? I thought I was mistaken I thought I heard your words Tell me how do I feel? Tell me now, how do I feel? Those who came before me Lived through their vocations From the past until completion They'll turn away no more And still, I find it so hard To say what I need to say But, I'm quite sure that you'll tell me Just how I should feel today [Instrumental Break] [Verse 2] I see a ship in the harbour I can and shall obey But, if it wasn't for your misfortune I'd be a heavenly person today And I thought I was mistaken And I thought I heard you speak Tell me, how do I feel? Tell me now, how should I feel? Now I stand here waiting [Verse 3] I thought I told you to leave me When I walked down to the beach Tell me how does it feel When your heart grows cold (Grows cold, grows cold, grows cold, grows cold) [Instrumental Outro]
Posted on a Sunday ahead of another happy Monday. You’re going to have a great week, world!
