If you listen to music long enough you might make certain connections like, Galaxie 500’s song “Ceremony,” is actually a New Order cover.[embedded content]
I know, I know, I’m behind the times. I had only heard of Galaxie 500 because I was a Luna fan. That’s where the rabbit hole opened.[embedded content]
Once I started to appreciate Dean Wareham, I became aware that he was in a groundbreaking band called Galaxie 500. I had read many articles saying that On Fire was one of the best albums ever written. After that tidbit of info I had to hear the album, and for the longest time, until yesterday actually, I thought “Ceremony” was their song.[embedded content]
It took me years of picking apart New Order’s catalog to find “Ceremony” and then it took me going back to Galaxy’s On Fire to figure out the mystery, putting 2 and 2 together. Don’t hate on me, it really does sound original. Give Galaxy 500 credit where credit is due. The band didn’t just do a straight-up cover, they put their own stamp on it.[embedded content]
This makes me appreciate both bands, and both versions even more.
There are 8 million stories in the naked city, darling, let’s be one of them.
