Artiestinformatie


New Order ontstaat in 1980 uit de groep Joy Division. Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook en Stephen Morris, die alle drie in Joy Division speelden, krijgen versterking van Gillian Gilbert. De groep kenmerkt zich, met name in de beginperiode, door sombere nummers.

In 1983 staat de groep met Blue Monday/The Beach (#3) voor het eerst in de Top 40. Daarna verschijnen ook Thieves Like Us en The Perfect Kiss/The Kiss Of Death in de tipparade. In 1988 verschijnt een remix van Blue Monday (#5) opnieuw in de Top 40. Het nummer wordt zelfs de bestverkochte maxi-single ooit uitgebracht. In 1993 verschijnt ook Regret nog in de tipparade, waarna de heren besluiten het rustig aan te gaan doen.

In die periode gaan sterke geruchten dat de groep niet meer bestaat en ook Peter Hook bevestigt dat in 2007. Vier jaar later, in 2011, blijkt Hook te zijn vervangen door bassist Tom Chaphan en staat New Order weer op het podium.


Songtekst

I've watched your face for a long time
It's always the same
I've studied the cracks and the wrinkles
You were always so vain
Well, now you live your life like a shadow
In the pouring rain

Oh, it's called love
Yes, it's called love
Oh, it's called love
And it belongs to us

Oh, it dies so quickly
It grows so slowly
But when it dies, it dies for good
It's called love
And it belongs to everyone but us

I've lived my life in the valleys
I've lived my life on the hills
I've lived my life on alcohol
I've lived my life on pills

But it's called love
And it belongs to us
It's called love
And it's the only thing that's worth living for

It's called love
And it belongs to us
It's called love
Yes it's called love

Oh, love is found in the east and west
But when love is at home, it's the best
Love is the cure for every evil
Love is the air that supports the eagle

It's called love
And it's so un-cool
It's called love
And somehow it's become unmentionable

It's called love
And it belongs to every one of us
It's called love
And it cuts your life like a broken knife

Oh, love, love, love love love
It's called love
And it belongs to us
It's called love, love, love love love

It's called love
And it belongs to everyone but us
