So horrible I couldn't delete this garbage fast enough.

IMHO, clearly they didn't improove it....they changed the instrumentation, that's all...they certainly did not add anything to the song.

The club 69 remixes of Blue Monday are better than the Optical vocal remix, but the DJ Dan remix is the best.

Jay Gordon is the master of the remix and he proved that with the first single of Candy@$$...The Green Velvet Stitches remix, while not the focalpoint of the single, is the best feature. The riff is brutal and the repeating of "loving you is, f'ing you is strange" is (while I've said before the repeating of vulgar lyrics is 'forgivable') brilliant...I can't explain it, it's just brilliant. The club 69 remixes of Blue Monday are better than the Optical vocal remix, but the DJ Dan remix is the best. The original is great, don't get me wrong, but these remixes add so much flare it's undeniable how awsome they are!

At first I was extermely angry to hear Orgy playing a cover of New Order, one of my favorite bands, but after listening to it a few times, I had to admit that Orgy's version is even better than the original! These remixes are all very cool. You'll like this CD if you listen to a lot of drum 'n bass and electronica in general, or if you like hard-hitting bands like KoRn, Coal Chamber, etc. It's hard to put Orgy in any certain category though, because their music is so creative and unique! (If you don't already own Candyass, Orgy's full-length album, you NEED to check it out!)

First - I LOVE "Blue Monday." I love what they did with the New Order's outdated original. This is one of the best songs to listen to on a joyride in my car on Lake Shore Drive... The video was a nice bonus as well.
However, what's up with these lousy remixes? The themes of the remixes seem to have no actual meaning in these remixes, and instead of the dynamic, emotional rollercoaster "Blue Monday" is, what you end up is mindless techno beats that is totally unsatisfactory.
Skip this single - go for the full album.

First, I'd like to say I love Orgy, I love Blue Monday, and I love Stitches. However on the single, there is Blue Monday, 5 crappy remixes of it, and a screwed up remix of Stitches in which they just repeat &*%$ing you is, loving you is over and over and over and over again with some bad techno in the background. Trust me, buy the CD. This single SUCKS!!!!!!!!!

I confess...I like Orgy's version of the New Order classic "Blue Monday". I like that booming techno/industrial sound that the group gives to the '80s classic. Still nothing beats the original version which is vastly superior to Orgy's rendition. I bought this single a few years ago because I had no desire to buy the entire album. It is just as well because the follow up single to "Blue Monday" sucked big time. Although I do like Orgy's cover of "Blue Monday", I thought (and still do) that the remixes on the single were pretty terrible, except for the Club 69 remix but otherwise I didn't like the rest of the remixes. "Blue Monday" does not sound good as a drum and bass song which you can hear on the Optical Vocal mix. Secondly including the Green Velvet mix of "Stitches" was pointless and also sounded terrible. I don't care for dub remixes. They just bore me. Other than the single mix, the only remix I really did like was Club 69 and that is because Club 69 didn't try to re-work the song completely like drum & bass artist (or group) Optical.

I'll be honest. Orgy is one of the worst bands I've ever heard.
In case you're not the usual MTV-watching, IQ-below-room-temperature type, I'll spare you the reminding of the originality of this song. I just find it curious that Orgy not only decided to cover the best selling 12" single of ALL TIME, but decided to butcher it note by note. Truly a sad day for music..

This song has good meaning (Blue Monday) It was copied from this band called New Order and I think it is much better than their version! I thought Orgy would just be a one hit wonder but their second song came out which is awesome too! VOTE FOR ORGY ON TOTAL REQUEST LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ROCK!!!!!!!!

....this song can't hold a candle to the original, period. New Order's "version" (I love when people refer to the original as New Order's "version" of the song, as if Orgy originated it) was revolutionary. It is the all time best selling 12" record, and even 16 years later still sounds futuristic, so I have a hard time agreeing with anyone who things Orgy "modernized" the song. IMHO, clearly they didn't improove it....they changed the instrumentation, that's all...they certainly did not add anything to the song. Even Orgy's version sounds pretty nice, but from my perspective its because they started out with a song/concept that was so brilliant to begin with, even butchering it to the extent they did still leaves something pretty good.
