Go On Go On Your Choice Is Made...
Swiss Adam has just finished a week of excellent posts on Joy Division and New Order, which got me to thinking of my fave New Order covers. That is other people covering New Order tunes, not New Order covering other band's songs. Anyway, the 15th of July 1985 saw the release of a great cover of New Order's Dreams Never End. Retitled Inbetween Days it saw The Cure's first foray into the US Billboard chart, reaching the dizzy heights of Number 99. The best New Order song ever recorded by a band that wasn't New Order, it is one of the great pop songs of the 80's and was the track that started me on a lifelong love of The Cure.
