Peaked at #26 in Australia, 1981.

I remember hearing all the accolades many years back and just not getting it. It makes more sense in the context of where it stands (which I understand a lot better now). Really, this is the definitive post-punk track, with the iconic synth riff & touching chorus which makes it stand out amongst Joy Division's otherwise very bleak catalogue. Generally I prefer the post-punk revivalist movement from the mid '00s, but I gotta pay respect to the pioneers.

Great song, but not one of the all time best.

Fantastic, this would be amongst my favourite tracks of all time and definitely in my top five of the 1980's. Great song. Year-End #19 of 1981, New Zealand. Glad this was so big here.

Good song

There's an incredible following of this indie track which had made me notice it more. The melody and structure is great but the vocals in the verse could be better. The chorus is fairly basic but forever memorable.

A truly memorable classic!
