Line(s) of the Day #Lovewilltearusapart

Love will tear us apart single cover

When routine bites hard and ambitions are low
And resentment rides high but emotions won’t grow
And we’re changing our ways, taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

The opening lyrics of the Joy Division song Love will tear us apart in 1981. Though never successful in the charts, decades later it continues to be regarded as a haunting classic.

    • He really was a poet of modern times. The music will live forever. After a lot of thought my top 5 are:
      1: Atmosphere
      2. Love will tear us apart
      3. Isolation
      4. Disorder
      5. Transmission

      • Hard to pick, really. If pushed for a ‘five’ I would probably go:
        1. The Eternal
        2. 24 Hours
        3. New Dawn Fades
        4. Decades
        5. Atmosphere
        6. Love Will Tear Us Apart ( OK, so I couldn’t stick to five, although even ten would be difficult)
        And, yes, a genuine modern day poet. Cheers.

      • It is tough to pick five let alone rank them. When I’m asked to do a top 50/100 films I always try and argue that Godfather 1 and 2 should count as 1 film seeing as they come in the same trilogy and arguably can’t be split haha.
