About Let's Dance to Joy Division

"Let's Dance to Joy Division" is a song by The Wombats and the second single taken from their album A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation. The song was available to download on 8 October 2007, and was physically released one week later. It is based on a drunken night when lead singer Matthew Murphy danced on a table with his girlfriend to "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division at the Liverpool night club Le Bateau, and the cover art references that single's art. There is a hidden track on the 7" vinyl version of the single, when Tord Øverland-Knudsen sings the theme tune from children's television show Postman Pat in Norwegian. The song features on the BBC Three program Scallywagga as the theme tune and is featured in series 3 episode 4 of the BBC three show Uncle

I'm back in Liverpool
And everything seems the same
But I worked something out last night
That changed this little boy's brain

A small piece of advice
That took twenty-two years in the making
And I will break it for you now
Please learn from my mistakes
Please learn from my mistakes

Let's dance to Joy Division
And celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong
But we're so happy

Let's dance to Joy Division
And raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong
But we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy

So, if you're ever feeling down
Grab your purse and take a taxi
To the darkest side of town
That's where we'll be

And we will wait for you
And lead you through the dance floor
Up to the DJ booth
You know what to ask for
You know what to ask for

Go ask for Joy Division
And celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong
But we're so happy

Let's dance to Joy Division
And raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong
But we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy

Let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart

Let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart (let it tear us apart)

So, let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart (let it tear us apart)

So, let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart, let it tear us apart, let it tear us apart

Let's dance to Joy Division
And celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong
But we're so happy

Let's dance to Joy Division
And raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong
But we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy

So happy
Yeah, we're so happy
So happy
Yeah, we're so happy
