Oh, I've since lost the heart

Joy Division - Candidate Lyrics

  • Excellent instrumentation, reminds me of Neu's Negativland. One of my favorites on UP
  • I've found that it's always the songs I enjoy at first but don't really *GET* initially that I end up dwelling on the longest. Like this one-it doesn't have the explosiveness of say Disorder, Shadowplay or Wilderness-but with time the minimalism grows on you and the lyrics sink in-and evoke an empathy profound yet inexplicable. You get a strong sense of what Ian is singing about-but the subject of what he is singing about will vary from listener to listener. It is amazing lyricism, but one open to interpretation-which is exactly what makes Ian a GREAT poet. It is somewhat disappointing that people will use the same label for people who didn't invest anything into their lyricism just because they like the melodies so much (cough Cobain cough).
  • I feel completely at ease listening to this song.
  • Possibly my favourite JD song.
  • Yes! I have been wanting to listen to more from this band...
  • one of the greatest, most atmospheric songs EVER.
  • Such a fucking underrated song.
  • @VeroniqueAtroce: I would disagree. The Eternal is Joy Division's most depressing song.
  • Good song
