New Order’s classic single “Blue Monday” remains the biggest selling UK 12 inch single of all time. It is also one of the longest singles ever to chart in the UK as it clocks in at more than 7 minutes. Did you know where the song’s title came from? Apparently it came from the title of an illustration in Kurt Vonnegut’s book ‘Breakfast Of Champions’. The title of that illustration was ‘Goodbye Blue Monday’ and it referred to how the invention of the washing machine had improved the lives of housewives so much! So obviously it never changed the lives of us men much then did it?
