Notes

Third pressing.

There are three UK 12" sleeves: The original first edition has a die-cut sleeve with cut-outs and a silver inner sleeve.
Later editions and re-pressings have die-cut sleeves or plain black sleeves with just the colour coding. The black inner sleeves are either thick glossy black carton or thin black paper. This copy comes in a plain black sleeve with just the colour coding.

The coloured strip is not random - it spells out the Catalog#, band name and both song titles.

It was released as a 12-inch single on 7 March 1983 through Factory Records and later as a 7-inch single through Tonpress in 1985. It appeared on certain cassette and CD versions of the band's second studio album, Power, Corruption & Lies (1983). Blue Monday" is a synth-pop and alternative dance song that drew inspirations from many works of other artists.

Released March 7, 1983. About Blue Monday 1 contributor. Inspired by a 5 inch floppy disk which he had seen the band use to record the song, the sleeve features a color code of Saville’s invention along the side which spells out the song’s name and catalog number (FAC73). The sleeve used for the original pressing contained die-cut holes which allowed the silver inner sleeve to show through

The key enabling this to be deciphered was printed on the back sleeve of the album Power, Corruption And Lies. In Q Magazine's 1001 Best Songs Ever issue, Peter Hook said, "I go through stages of intense dislike for 'Blue Monday,' which I'm sure every group does when they get one song they're synonymous with, but the way it keeps getting reinvented is wonderful. It seems to be one of those tracks that's timeless, which is amazing. Later, Kraftwerk's ex-member Karl Bartos released an album called Communication. The release from there, "15 Minutes Of Fame" is EXTREMELY similar. How ironic! Martin from Groningen, NetherlandsRolling Stone 15/9/83 Interview by Debby Miller.

Love Will Tear Us Apart.

How does it feel To treat me like you do When you've laid your hands upon me And told me who you are. I thought I was mistaken I thought I heard your words Tell me how do I feel Tell me now how do I feel. Those who came before me Lived through their vocations From the past until completion They will turn away no more. And I still find it so hard To say what I need to say But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me Just how I should feel today

Blue Monday has two versions of its music video. The first from 1983 is a shortened version of the song featuring military clips, simple computer-generated graphics, and digitized video of band members.

My copy has miss-pressed labels (on the wrong way around) but other wise ok.
Arith
I also have thAt version, wonder what the story is with the inscription? Pretty much near mint condition. Still beats the shite the industry produces these days.
Varshav
I have this version in diecut sleeve with black inner sleeve. It is mis-labelled. The side stamped "FAC 73 A3 GG Pounda Ta1pe WHERE'S MURDER?" is labelled as the track "The Beach" (it actually plays "Blue Monday"). The side stamped "FAC 73 B3 GG I SAID WHERE'S MURDER?" is labelled as "Blue Monday" (it actually plays "The Beach").
Xarcondre
Mine too has the label swap and same run outs
Ynneig
I too also have this mispressing of this particular repress :-)
Tcaruieb
+1 for another mis-labelled one. Must be all of them. Confused the hell out of me at first expecting kick drum and getting something else entirely!
Jeronashe
I also have this mislabelled version. As stated by Lanarker.
