Slicing Up Eyeballs are running one of their votes. They’ve already done bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure and R.E.M. and have now turned their attention to New Order.

Just in case anyone was interested, here are the 25 I picked (in alphabetic order):

1. 1963
2. 586
3. Age Of Consent
4. Ceremony
5. Crystal
6. Dream Attack
7. Elegia
8. Everything’s Gone Green
9. Here To Stay
10. Hurt
11. In A Lonely Place
12. Leave Me Alone
13. Mr Disco
14. Murder
15. Paradise
16. Procession
17. Regret
18. Singularity
19. Sunrise
20. Temptation
21. The Perfect Kiss
22. Thieves Like Us
23. This Time Of Night
24. True Faith
25. Vanishing Point

It pained me to have to miss out tracks like chosen Time, Dreams Never End, Mesh, Cries & Whispers, Restless, Guilt Is A Useless Emotion, Someone Like You, Primitive Notion, Your Silent Face, Ecstasy plus probably quite a few others. But you’re limited to just 25.

Quite good fun.

I love a pointless list. Here's mine.

1963
Academic
As It Is When It Was
BLT
Blue Monday
Ceremony
Dream Attack
Elegia
Face Up
Guilty Partner
Nothing But A Fool
Plastic
Primitive Notion
Round & Round
Shellshock
Special
Temptation
TPK
The Village
Thieves Like Us
This Time of Night
True Faith
Vanishing Point
Way Of Life
World

It seems wrong to leave out Love Vigilantes, Age of Consent, Run, Everything's Gone Green and All Day Long, plus about 25 others.

Nice choices.

I’ll be absolutely shocked if, when the final results are in, the top 3 aren’t Ceremony, Temptation and TPK, in no particular order. I’m guessing Blue Monday, True Faith, BLT and Regret will also help to fill out the top ten. I really can’t predict what other tracks would make the top ten.

Looking through your list, I’m kind of disgusted in myself that I left out Shellshock and Blue Monday.
There’s just too many brilliant songs. Far more than 25.

This has been a wonderful distraction from all the papers I need to be writing. Once I got my first fifteen picks, though, the selection process started to get a bit tricky. After I got through my major favorites, it took a lot more deliberation.

Anyway, I wound up with the following twenty-five:

586
Age of Consent
All Day Long
Angel Dust
Bizarre Love Triangle
Ceremony
Chosen Time
Dream Attack
Dreams Never End
Elegia
Leave Me Alone
Lonesome Tonight
Paradise
Procession
Senses
Sunrise
Temptation
The Him
The Perfect Kiss
The Village
Thieves Like Us
This Time of Night
Vanishing Point
Waiting for the Sirens' Call
Your Silent Face

There are, of course, many other songs I wish could fit on this list.

Ultimately, this was a fun, little activity. Thanks for pointing us toward the poll, Perspexorange.

No problem. :-)
I hope others join in; will be nice to see what the consensus of opinion is amongst as many fans as possible.

Again, great choices. I really should’ve included Chosen Time on my list too.

Been having a think about what other tracks I think will make it into the top ten when the results come in. As well as the seven I mentioned above (Ceremony, Temptation, TPK, BM, TF, BLT & Regret), I’m gonna go with Thieves Like Us and 1963. The last one is even more tricky. Crystal, perhaps.

I’m hoping that my personal favourite, Dream Attack, gets a good showing.

Hmm...how to approach this? I mean, just due to omnipresence it wouldn't bug me if I never heard a track like Blue Monday again but pretty sure I can't leave it off a top 25 list. Has to come in at #1 surely?

I think it kind of depends on who the majority of voters are.

If it's mostly casual fans (i.e. those that only really know, say, 10-20 tracks) voting, Blue Monday will probably come in at number 1.

If there are a large number of keen fans (like us) voting, I'd say it'll be a little further down the order (pardon the pun), being behind the likes of Temptation, TPK and Ceremony.
If you look at the four of us who have shared our votes here, it'a a 50:50 split on including BM or not. Yet all four of us have voted for the above three tracks.

I'd be surprised if BM figures lower than number 5 either way.
SlicingUpEyeballs is a fairly dedicated website, so we should expect a reasonably high turnout of NO fans.
I hope so - I think it will be far more interesting if this is the case. I'd hate to think of the votes being, on the whole, cast by people who only know BM, TF, BLT, Regret, WIM & Crystal, and thereby only vote for these tracks (you don't have to vote for as many as 25 songs).

I have to stop talking about the Spice Girls. Just stop right now, thank you very much.
I'm sick to death of Blue Monday but I can't argue it's technically 'bad'.
If I could take a time machine and go back to 1989 to tell my younger self I'd still rate 'Round and Round' in 2017, he'd be very surprised. Because he just saw a fucking time machine.

I missed Round & Round and Fine Time off my list, just simply because I had Mr Disco, Vanishing Point & Dream Attack on there and didn’t want a Technique overload.
I could, very easily, have included all 9 tracks from that LP on my list though. 😀

Blue Monday is possibly the most influential track of the 80s and I truly love it. But, I agree, I’ve heard it a little too often.

Technique is still my favourite but I always thought the second side suffered from excess padding. My mother (so it must be true) said Mr Disco was unneccesarily strteched out. I remember because it is the only interesting, worthwhile thing she has ever said in my entire life.
There's usually a little indie snobbery in these lists. The bog standard listener will go for Blue Snoozeday; the hard core fan for Homage. No one gives a fuck anyway.

Think I was the last person who agreed with you, also, Michael.
A very worrying turn of events.

‘Excessive padding’?.. Sacrilege. I couldn’t disagree more.
See, there we go... the balance is redressed. All is now right in the world. 😀

I'm actually amazed NewOrder have only written 157 songs in what 37 years?

That's about 4 songs a year.

Pretty sure I could knock out a song every three months or so and hold down my day job.....

You lost me with "My mother...strteched (sic) out."

I think Guilty Partner and Fine Time were the only Technique tracks that didn't make my list.

Blue Monday probably deserved my vote but I figured it would get more than enough votes from others.

Even less impressive when you realise that they've included some remixes in there (Shellcock, Perfect Pit etc.).

Phew that was difficult when you see them all written down. I had no tracks from GR and Movement. Shows that although GR is a good solid album lacks the classics ( apart Crystal but that never made my list either) WFTSC although a patchy album gets 2 entries. Could have put all of PC&L and Technique, but didn’t.

Age of consent

Perfect kiss

Cries and whispers
Lonesome tonight
Thieves like us

I agree......

Despite owning everything created by NewOrder in multiple formats, I got to about 15 then found myself liking songs just to get the count up to 25......

NewOrder songs are like chasing girls in your youth.....Its the hope and anticipation of the song, not the listening which is more akin to the children and divorces that inevitably come later.....



Face up.......
