Now, let's begin.
1. Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart (1980)
- An obvious choice perhaps, but obvious for a reason. This is not just the greatest post-punk song of all time it is also the (second) best SONG of all time, losing only to The Smiths immortal masterpiece from 1986 "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out".
Released only one month prior to Ian Curtis' suicide and with that in mind this elegy of dying love rings painfully true.
2. The Cure - Faith (1981)
