On Blue Monday, 5 great performances of Blue Monday

The third monday in January has become known as Blue Monday, which should, of course, remind all readers of FAC 73. New Order’s peerlessly monolithic 1983 single, the best selling 12” of all time, has received many wonderful filmed performances in the 19 years since its release. Here are five of them.

  • Blue Monday – the official video [1983]
  • Blue Monday live on Channel 4’s Switch, in April 1983
  • New Order in the Radio 1 studios, 1984
  • Blue Monday live on Top Of The Pops
  • Blue Monday ’88 – official video
