The Top Ten
The best hit New Order, wonderful, unique and definitely stands out hit this team.
12" is so much better than the 7"
SHOULD BE THE NUMERO UNO
By far their best song.
This should at least have 30%! Please vote higher!
The ultimate song to dance to and it's long. That intro just makes you want to dance from the kick drum pounding. Great drums. Synths are hard at work, like most New Order songs. It just adds to the drama of the vocals. - CoatsyV 4 Comments
1985 love this song
This should be the number one song! I fell in love with this song and it's the best!
It sounds so ethereal, especially the vocals during the chorus. It also has a heaviness with the drums and bass thumping along. I imagine a flower blooming whenever I hear this song. Just love it! - Coatsy

Their first and only number 1 in the UK - mneilan
"Just wait 'til tomorrow. I guess that's what they want to say, just before they fall apart. "
Truer words were never spoken. This song is fantastic.
If I was to rank every band ever, and if I was to rank every song ever, if I then compared those two lists, this would be the song that farthest outranks it's band.
Exactly what I want in my playlists... raw energy to accompany and enhance all my fun activities!
I can't believe this is so low! It might actually be my favourite song of all time - one of the few songs that I thoroughly enjoy every single second.
Like it's up for debate!
A song that strongly harks back to Joy Division, being one of the last songs they ever composed. Listening to "Ceremony" is like taking a drive on a desert highway in an old convertible, feeling the wind whip your hair back and forth every second.
The link between Joy Div' and New Order. In the original version Ian's voice is fading away, as he little by little desappear. I feel so much connection toward this song, I can't explain it. ThanksV 1 Comment
Like many New Order songs, there are two versions of this: the single, and the version later released on Substance. Both are fantastic.
Can't ever stop playing this highly addictive song - PositronWildhawk
The opening track to the iconic Power, Corruption & Lies, "Age of Consent" has to be one of New Order most well-known non-singles, featuring one of the most addictive bass hooks ever, played by none other than Peter Hook.
Never heard of New Order before, this song blew me away! So catchy!
Bizarre Love Triangle
Age Of Consent
Dreams Never End
That bass line hooks you right in. The slapping drums give the constant rhythm. The synthesizers are lovely during the chorus and the rest of the song. Every time I hear this song, I hear something new. The keyboards make the sound even bigger and that chorus is awesome to sing along with. Not to mention the 4 minute instrumental at the end. - Coatsy
I can't believe this isn't top 3 its epic with the best hooky bass riff ever and manages to be both moving and irresistably funky at the same time. Streets ahead of most of the rest on this list
This dancey number hails from Technique, an album that marked New Order's transition from their standard synth fare to a more alternative dance/acid house fusion. Contrary to its name, there is nothing disco about this song, but its rad synth bass and pensive lyrics suggest that disco could have still been very cool if there were.
An oft-forgotten gem on the second side of Brotherhood, "All Day Long" is New Order at their synthiest, and arguably, finest. Features a spiraling climax of guitar, bass and strings that orgasm into a hell of an outro, which belies its rather somber lyrics.
Just don't point that gun at him Johnny!
It was dedicated to Ian Curtis, the lead singer of Joy Division, who suicided in 1980. After his suicide, Joy Division changed their name into New Order.
