Anyway, as I was installing the door knobs on my newly painted doors this morning, an old Joy Division song I haven't heard or thought of for well over a decade seeped into my mind. I took a break to YouTube the song. Once I found it, I ended up listening to it three times in a row, then spent the rest of the day humming tune as I continued working on the minor interior renovations in my house.
Most popular music dates terribly. This applies even to the good stuff. Nevertheless, some pop/rock songs are like fine wines - they grow deeper and richer with age. In my opinion, Love Will Tear Us Apart is one of those songs.
