Shuffle Song Of The Day (9/20/18): “The Perfect Kiss” By New Order

And here’s an extended version along with the official music video that shows them recording the song in the studio back in the 80’s, pretty cool watch

“The Perfect Kiss” is a song by the British synth pop band New Order from their 1985 album Low Life. New Order formed with the remaining members of Joy Division after Ian Curtis’s suicide in 1980, and decided to take on more of synth-driven style rather than their old post-punk sound. The 80’s was ruled by synthesizers and I think that New Order was among the best when it came to making catchy songs with them. If this song doesn’t make you want to time travel back to 85′ and dance in a club while high as fuck on coke something must be wrong with you. As for a perfect kiss, I don’t think I’ve ever had one. Anytime I’ve ever kissed somebody it’s usually while shitfaced in a dive bar or something like that, and I don’t think that exactly fits the profile of a perfect kiss. Actually, I would say that the only perfect kisses I’ve had in my lifetime are whenever I touch my lips to a can of beer. Simply beautiful every single time.


LYRICS

I stood there beside myself
Thinking hard about the weather
Then came by a friend of mine
Suggested we go out together
Then I knew it from the start
This friend of mine would fall apart
Pretending not to see his gun
I said let’s go out and have some fun
I know you know
We believe in a land of love
I know you know
We believe in a land of love
I have always thought about
Staying here and going out
Tonight I should have stayed at home
Playing with my pleasure zone
He has always been so strange
I’d often thought he was deranged
Pretending not to see his gun
I said let’s go out and have some fun
I know you know
We believe in a land of love
I know you know
We believe in a land of love
When you are alone at night
You search yourself for all the things
That you believe are right
If you give it all away
You throw away your only chance to be here today
Then a fight breaks out on your street
You lose another broken heart in a land of meat
My friend, he took his final breath
Now I know the perfect kiss is the kiss of death
