How do I feel?

Tell me now how do I feel?

Blue Monday originally released by New Order in 1983. It was re-released several times. Here is the video for the 1988 version.  I liked the song then and I  like many of the cover versions that have cropped up over the years.

Knowing I was going to talk about this iconic music, I thought I would look around and see if there were other interesting versions. I was not disappointed when I came across a slow ethereal version by Flunk.

The Klutae remix I found is so creepy dance goth so of course that makes the list.

For years though I have liked Orgy’s version the best until I saw the video of  Orkestra Obsolete  playing it using instruments only available in the 1930’s. Wow!


It finally happened.

It would have been more likely to happen around high school or college because I listened to them so much in those days. My favourite band finally planted an ear worm. I woke up with the song “Winning Side” by Oingo Boingo going through my head. It was Danny Elfman’s solo video of “Gratitude” quickly followed by the album “Dead Man’s Party” that got me wildly into this group which I have followed since then until now, where Danny Elfman still creates music for the movies, even though he has retired from the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo.
