Ceremony by New Order
There are a handful of bands that would count as my favorite, including The Jazz Butcher and The JAMMs, but throughout the years, it always comes back to New Order. Throw in their related acts – Joy Division, The Other Two, Electronic, Revenge, Monaco, and Bad Lieutenant - and the choice is easy.
This song is the natural choice. First recorded by Joy Division, then later recorded and released by New Order after Ian’s death, it was the transition from one group to the next.
