IAN CURTIS b. JULY 15th 1956

another rock & roll casualty, ian curtis would have been 53yo today but checked out early in 1980 at 23yo. i don't have a lot of joy division on my ipod but i do have a few songs. this version of "love will tear us apart" is by a norwegian band & they slow things down quite a bit to focus on the singer's voice & curtis' lyrics. the song is really quite lovely.

When the routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And the resentment rides high
But emotions wont grow
And we're changing our ways,
Taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again
