Today’s song of the day is a song that really got me into this group. I remember hearing “Bizarre Love Triangle” by New Order early on in my high school days, and it provided the perfect gateway for me to get into New Order. I’ve always been familiar with New Order, but never had the opportunity to have that one song that hooked me immediately, until I heard this one.
Since then, I’ve noticed this song making a comeback over the years in mainstream media and film. The song was featured in the movie Hot Tub Time Machine, and instrumental version was used in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercial, and hell, the mashup artist Girl Talk sampled the song in the track “On and On”.
The song has been covered and remade oodles of times, too and appears on New Order’s album Brotherhood. It’s listed as 201 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
