One of my favorite Joy Division songs is "Disorder", track 1, side 1 on Unknown Pleasures. The opening lyric says, "I've been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand." Whenever I sing it at work everybody looks at me inquisitively. I think they look at me inquisitively because they mistake me for saying, "I've been waiting for a guy to come and take me by the hand." I am not saying that at all, but maybe they don't mistake me for saying that and they are looking at me inquisitively for an entirely different reason all together.

For a brief dark period I worked at Brooks Brothers and the dress code was 3 items out of dress shirt, tie, jacket, pocket square and sweater. I wanted to go in wearing a jacket, tie, pocket square and no shirt.

Potentially unpopular opinion: One of the worst Joy Division songs is "Love Will Tear Us Apart," even though that is the one everyone knows.
A second potentially unpopular opinion: Interpol doesn't sound much like Joy Division at all, even though everyone and their uncle insists that they do. Yes, they both have baritone singers, but come on now.

I would not say "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is their worst song, but it certainly isn't their best.

Also, it is very true that he seems to be singing "waiting for a guy..."

EDIT: I also like to sing "Disorder" at work, but I like to belt out the very last line: "fee-ling, fee-ling, fee-ling, fee-ling, fee-ling, fee-ling, FEEEEE-ling."

Do you air drum at the same time?

I love singing the "Until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know" part. Then there is that awesome little bass riff right before the "I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling," parts. So good.

"Love Will Tear Us Apart" is the best Joy Division song that has been covered a million times and is frequently used on movie soundtracks.

That's is really insensitive. You know he was just having epileptic seizures, right?

There is something special about the first few bars/15 seconds of "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

But maybe that's just because I always listen to Sound Opinions and they frequently use it as a part of their title music.

I prefer the original version.
