“Atmosphere” – Joy Division

For those who don’t know, Joy Division was the band the members of New Order were in before their lead singer Ian Curtis left this mortal coil by his own hand. “Love Will Tear Us Apart” may be Joy Division’s most famous song (its become so mainstream these days I heard it in Safeway over the PA sandwiched between Ronnie James Dio and Michael Jackson a month or two ago), but “Atmosphere” is arguably their best. The video is directed by legendary photographer Anton Corbijn (who also directed Nirvana’s classic “Heart Shaped Box” video). If you like what you hear/see, be sure to check out Corbijn’s superlative 2007 biopic on Curtis “Control.”
