10 REASONS TO DIG JOY DIVISION/NEW ORDER COVERS

Posted: January 5, 2008 by dillion in Covers

JD and NO were never my favorites, but I can appreciate them. Here’s some covers.

1. Ceremony (Joy Division Cover)-Xiu Xiu

2. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You / Shadowplay (Joy Division Cover Live 2007)-The Killers. A studio version is available on the Killers’ last release, “Sawdust.”

3. Enjoy The Silence (new order)-Keane

4. Radiohead covers New Order! (Youtube link)

5. Love Vigilantes (New Order Cover)-Voxtrot

6. Love Will Tear Us Apart (JD)-Calexico

7. Hurts Like Teen Spirit-Johnny Cash. One of the greatest mashups ever made, with a twinge of New Order if you look for it.

8. Temptation (New Order cover)-Bobby Bare Jr.

9. Love Will Tear Us Apart (JD)-Albert Kuvezin & Yat-Kha

10. Lullaby (The Cure)-Editors. A band who owes its sound to Joy Division covering a band who owes its sound to New Order. Yeah, I’m kind of a wise ass.

    “A band who owes its sound to Joy Division covering a band who owes its sound to New Order.”
    The Cure actually formed the same year as Joy Division, so I would’nt really say they owe their sound to New Order…

  2. ekko says:

    Well then New Order owes its sound to the Cure.

    Seriously, though, they all sound alike to my ears.

    total dumb and unprofessional idiot-post.
    wasted time to read that bullshit.
    try reading wikipedia a bit or an encyclopedia.
    you ain´t a wise ass, you are only a dumb ass.

    THE CURE FORMER IN 1976 AND ITS FIRST RELEASE WAS IN 1978 KILLING AN ARAB – 10.15 SATURDAY NIGHT

    NEW ORDER FORMER IN 1981 AND ITS FIRST RELEASE WAS 1981 CEREMONY(JOY DIVISION COVER) – IN A LONELY PLACE ( JOY DIVISION COVER )

    JOY DIVISION FORMER IN 1977 AND FIRST RELEASE WAS 1979 TRANSMISSION

    AND EVERYONE SOUNDS DIFFERENT TO ME… SAME KIND OF MUSIC BUT REALLY REALLY DIFFERENT!

    She’s Lost Control. Girls Against Boys. Rocks.

  7. Keri says:

    I can’t believe that nobody else has pointed this out already but New Order IS Joy Division. They changed their name from Joy Division to New Order after their lead singer died. And NO the Cure, New Order & Depeche Mode do not sound the same, they all have very distinct sounds. Also, the reason why there are so many covers of New Order/Joy Division songs is because they ARE so incredibly talented. Everybody and his aunt lists them as one of their influences.
