"Love Will Tear Us Apart" - Joy Division


"Recorded a mere two months before lead singer Ian Curtis committed suicide but released a month after his death, 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' is the sound of despair in musical form. At the time of writing the song, Curtis’s marriage was under considerable strain, due in part to his ongoing affair with a Belgian woman. And whether autobiographical or not, the lyrics are clearly the work of a troubled soul."
