New Order hit track featured in documentaryIn collaboration with Swedish National Television, legendary new wave group New Order has released a 30-minute documentary on the story behind the 1983 hit single “Blue Monday,” now available to stream through the Swedish National Television website. “Blue Monday” remains the biggest selling 12″ of all time, with total sales at 1.16 million in the United Kingdom alone and the song ranked 69th in the all time UK best selling singles chart published in November 2012. BBC Radio 2 describes the song as “a crucial link between seventies disco and the dance/house boom that took off at the end of the eighties.” New Order vocalist Bernard Sumner says of the song, “I don’t really regard it as a song. I kind of regard it as a machine to make people dance.”
