New Order ‎– Blue Monday

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
New Order's fifth single. A milestone, both by musical standards and by design standards. Sold over 1 million copies globally. But because at the time of release, Factory weren't part of the BPI, there are no reliable figures nor certifications or awards.
Initial editions were released in March 1983 with die-cut cover and cut outs and a thick silver inner sleeve, designed by Peter Saville.
Cover variations: Die-cut with cut-outs, die-cut without cut-outs, plain printed.
Inner sleeve variations: Thick glossy silver, thin matte silver, thick glossy black or thin matte black.
All bear the colour code, spelling "FAC 73 Blue Monday And The Beach New Order".
There is a common misconception that Factory lost money on the release due to the design. The sleeve did cost so much that it actually denied Factory an extra profit of just under 1 UK Pence on each copy sold. But demand and production cost and timings meant that the sleeve became progressively more simple with each repressing.

Peaked at #9 in the UK Single charts and at #1 in the UK Indie Charts.

Blue Monday 1988:
New Order's 16th single, released in March 1988. Produced by Quincy Jones with the actual remix done by John Potoker. After New Order signed to Qwest in the US, Quincy Jones saw an opportunity for their groundbreaking track to have a legitimate single release and a shot at radio airplay. In the UK it was released as 7", 12", CD-Single and as CD-V, featuring an alternate 7" mix. In North America, 'Touched By The Hand Of God' was featured as B-side.

The video of Blue Monday 1988 is known for the Weimaraner dog 'Fay Ray', owned by video director William Wegman. The video also features a Robert Breer flicker book, that was given away by Factory as 1988 Christmas present (Fac 235).

Also reissued in 1995 with new remixes.

New Order used a sample from Kraftwerk track "Uranium" on Blue Monday.

On some editions, the first beats of the 16-bar intro are cut off.

Six users have this, but no one has bothered to upload images?

The biggest EVER selling 12" (and single) by New Order alone! From my understanding all proceeds from this song went to fund The Hacienda rather than the New Order's respected savings.

That aside, this is one of my all time faves! A true classic that will NEVER grow old! <3 <3

Mine says GG3 on both sides. My guess this is either the UK or Scnadinavian version. I'm guessing UK.

Mine does not have the hype sticker and the matrix runout is a little different... I have an encircled #3 instead of the 2

I have 2 of these pressings and for both it appears that the labels are reversed - the side that plays "blue monday" is labeled "the beach" and vice versa - anyone else have the same?

I have 2 of the imported UK versions of the 12 inch vinyl discs I purchased in 1983 in Southern California. Both have the same issue the mis-labeling - the side labeled "Blue Monday" is etched "R-CUT" & "FAC 73 B2" the actual song is on this side of the disc is "The Beach" and the side labeled "The Beach" is stamped "STRAWBERRY" and etched "OUT VOTED", "FAC-73-A1", "MT.3". The sleeves are both Die Cut Sleeves - 3 edge cuts (2 circular + 1 square) and 3 body (center circle with smaller circle offset with rounded rectangle toward edge). Any one else have this version?
