Fuck It Fridays: Joy Division - Shadowplay

The great Joy Division were easily one of the most influential bands of our time. What was once a post-punk outfit, then later becoming nu-wave legends New Order due to the death of former front-man Ian Curtis, they have chartered all territories and opened up new genres along the way. This particular track "Shadowplay" off their debut album 'Unknown Pleasures' has always brought a sense of security to me each time I hear it...It's hard to explain but once that deep brooding bass starts at the intro, you know everything's going to be alright, even through the darkest of days.
