This Blue Monday Cover Is Rad

Blue Monday. Arguably one of the best synthpop tracks ever. Originally released in 1983 by Factory Records, it is recognized as the best selling UK 12" ever.  And for good reason.  Above is the original 12" sleeve, and as you can see they were already getting digital.  Btw if you've never heard of Factory Records, Malcom McLaren, or (god forbid) New Order, you need to watch 24 hour party people.

Meterhead featuring Emma Lucia have taken this classic and made a version that will make all the people in the club dance as if they are hearing the original, but they will give that little spark of joy in hearing a version they feel like they know but is actually totally new. Kudos.
