New Order’s “Blue Monday” Played On Floppy Disks

Oh, the irony. Paweł Zadrożniak’s Floppotron performs yet gift of a tune, the 1983 New Order smash Blue Monday. When the original song was released, it had unique packaging was designed by Peter Saville and Brett Wickens. It features a die-cut sleeve designed to resemble a 5¼” floppy disk. The front cover features no words, but instead has code in the form of coloured blocks that reads out the artist, song, and label information, once deciphered. The original song still stands as the best-selling 12″ single of all time.
