I have never heared of this song.


it's indeed a lil' rarity , because it was only the b-side of their - imho , of course ! - worst single ever called "heart of the world" from 1990 - iirc ...
not many people - not even all bc fans !   - know this wonderful , but also very sad song , which is indeed a shame , as it's one of the best rock ballads ever written - also imho , of course !

Quoted from TheAviator

New Order - Ceremony


yeah ... that's a really good choice , as it also marks the end of joy division ( because this songs was actually still written together with ian curtis ) & the beginning of ( the ) new order ( because it was their very 1st single ) !

in my all time favorite list of great 80s songs there's one song i currently like to listen to a lot again ... & it's "sleepwalk" by ultravox , which was their very 1st single with midge ure as the new lead singer & guitarist then !  

but i simply could pick jus' one song - no matter from which band , sorry !

If I absolutely have to make a choice for one song, it would probably be a straight choice between:

We Take Mystery (To Bed) - Gary Numan

Temptation - Heaven 17

Way, way too many class tracks to choose from though...

I always had a preference for Heaven 17's Penthouse & Pavement above their other singles
