Since we're doing a tribute to Ian Curtis this week, I'm going to take this opportunity to post a song that I love but never play: Tiger Baby's excellent cover of "Love Will Tear Us Apart". Done in their signature sweet-but-meloncholy style of synthpop, this is by far my favorite cover of this song that I've ever heard. As I mentioned in a post last month, this isn't their only great cover, either. If you like this, you'll find it's very representative of Tiger Baby's original material, which I highly recommend.
As for why I never play it:
Frankly, I don't have the balls. I'm afraid the crowd will lynch me if they hear anything but the original. Also it has this 30 second long beatless break in the middle--that's a long time on the dance floor. But Darrel keeps requesting it, so maybe someday...
