Temptation '87 - New Order

not only blue eyes:

"....ooh you've got green eyes

ooh you've got blue eyes ooh you've got grey eyes ooh you've got green eyes ooh you've got blue eyes ooh you've got greeeeeeey eyes....."

a song about going from the darkness into the light, about getting away for a moment of realisation

"tonight I think I'll walk alone I'll find my soul as I go home...."

but also those perfect rave moments when you have an almost out-of-body experience, and seem to be looking down on everybody as they dance in slow motion silence. At that magic moment one minute and 8 seconds in, when the acoustic chord becomes forgiving against the club backdrop and Bernard Sumner sings

"....heaven, a gateway, a hope just like a feeling inside, it's no joke...."

This is a song of quiet exultations.

They say it's a song about Ian Curtis, but I think it's about going home in the small hours. And being in love.
