Yeah, Ian, things could have been huge but I understand the dilemma.  Rest in peace, young man.

 

The times have best wondrous; and your ability to help me get through days can't go unrequited.

"People like you, find it easy...always in tune...walking on air."

May 18th marks the 25th anniversary of Ian Curtis' death. He is one of the most influencial, most gifted figures in music, and he is very important to me personally. One thing when listening to Ian Curtis singing, other than that voice, is his lyrics are so honest, they are so real. It's bone-chilling. He put so much of himself into what he was singing and what he was writing, it leaves an emotional impact on the listener. His lyrics are very identifiable.

From Dead Souls:
Someone take these dreams away,
That point me to another day,
A duel of personalities,
That stretch all true realities.

That keep calling me, they keep calling me.


I'm not saying shut yourself in your room and listen to Joy Division music all day. But maybe, when you're waiting in line for Star Wars, turn to a few Joy Division songs on your I-Pod. Ian Curtis was a powerful singer, a masterful writer, a mind-blowing performer on stage...he was a visionary. Thank you Ian, for your legacy. Rest in Peace.

i utterly believe Joy Division will be remembered in 25 years. art with this kind of power never fades. there has never been a performer with such a degree of  *otherness* that Ian Curtis possessed. the music sounds more than contemporary. it's entirely timeless.. R.I.P. Ian. you were/are something else
