The Daily Cheese Fab 5 Countdown: #3

For those of you who are waiting for disco to pop up on this countdown of the greatest dance songs ever, don't hold your breath. Disco gave birth to modern cheeseball dance music, but I consider it a category all its own. I'll post the Blondie/ABBA/Donna stuff some other time.

Anyhoo, today's track is brought to us by a band that rose from the ashes of Joy Division, one of the most innovative and depressing hot messes ever sent to us by the Brits (so depressing in fact that the lead singer hung himself the night before their first American tour). How could something so ebullient come out of that? I have no idea, but this is their greatest track. A word of advice: turn the sound up, and go find something else to occupy yourself because the video itself is REALLY boring. Feel free to dance about the room for...

New Order, "Bizarre Love Triangle"

I didn't watch the YouTube thingy - and the video I remember just being so-so - except for the dialouge about reincarnation.

THAT I had on my answering machine (ok...late 80s) for a LONG time.
