Thank you number one commenter Brendan for inspiring a post.
This song is the business. Not surprisingly because, well, who doesn’t like New Order, right?
Certainly the Killers do, since they got the name for their band not from the movie based on the Hemingway story, but for the video to “Crystal” here.
But this whole album, Get Ready, their “come back” album from 2001, is just excellent. This is one of the first things you get from me when you make the mistake of coming into my world. It’s got attributes that you can probably ascribe to so many facets of my life: Slightly dark, slightly cheesy and weird, very European at times, full of regret yet incredibly danceable, and Billy Corgan cameos. Yeah, that’s me in a nutshell, I guess.
