Notes New Order’s signature tune - over the years, many versions have been recorded. Initially, the 7” and 12” versions in 1982, a re-recording in 1987 for Substance and again in 1998 for the Manchester Commonwealth Games bid. It is also the song they have performed live the most.

A heaven, a gateway, a hope
Just like a feeling inside, its no joke
And though it hurts me to treat you this way
Betrayed by words, Id never heard, too hard to say
