5.0 out of 5 stars Wow... March 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing beats the original version January 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is awesome! November 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!)

2.0 out of 5 stars a nice song and its lousy remixes November 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sucks a** June 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Musical Murder December 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
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..

5.0 out of 5 stars IT ROCKS June 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the 'Stitches' single, that's for sure August 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm in a good mood right now, so I'm not going to be as critical of the 'Blue Monday' single as I was 'Stitches'. For starters, with the exception of the first track (the single mix), if you just blindly pop this CD into your player without looking at it, you'll be hard pressed to figure out what you're listening to, which isn't necessarily bad, as some of these songs come off really cool.
We start the CD off with the single version of Blue Monday... if you've got 'Candyass', you've heard this; if you have a radio, you've heard this. The second track is the Optical Vocal Mix, which is pretty much your straight-forward drums 'n' bass mix of Blue Monday, and while only 6:37 long, it feels longer than most songs on here. Track three, the Green Velvet Mix of 'Stitches', it blows. For the love of God, stop trying to remix this song, it's not possible. It's basically six minutes and eleven seconds of... looped over a monotonous tune. Just terrible, I can't say enough bad things about this "song".
My patience has paid off! Track four and five, the Club 69 Mix and Club 69 Dub, respectively, are REALLY good. They must have samples from the original New Order 'Blue Monday', because the beats from this sound IDENTICAL to New Order's version. The songs have this 80's feel to them, almost like a New Order/Orgy hybrid song, but at the same time they sound very cutting-edge, and are my personal favorites from the single. The Club 69 Mix clocks in at a whopping 8:40, while the Dub is half a minute shorter, but you'll wish both of them were longer, they're that good. Track six is the Optical Instrumental Mix, which is the Optical Vocal Mix without, you guessed it, vocals! Moving on, for track seven, we get DJ Dan! If you've read my 'Opticon' review, you'll know how much I love this guy ;-).
