The Tolerable Blue Monday

The Tolerable Blue Monday

Have you all heard of Nouvelle Vague? They're a French pop/folk band that cover 80s rockpop poop type songs.

Example: "Blue Monday", originally by New Order:

Normally I would (unthinkingly blurt out that I) hate the original version of this song. I think it's the synthesizers that turn me off so much - it reminds me of being forced to listen to music I didn't like in the car. And without those distinctively 80s icky synths, down at the core, Nouvelle Vague shows us what good potential those 80s songs have.

Hope you enjoyed it. More available on you tube here.
