Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Joy Division – She’s Lost Control

joy

196 – Joy Division – She’s Lost Control (1979)
Written by Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris and Ian Curtis
Produced by Martin Hannett and Joy Division
Label – Factory

Curtis sings with the detached chill of “The Passenger” from his sonic mentor, Iggy Pop. The isolationism is palpable; the looming darkness unnerving, the depth of intensity seems bottomless. Lyrically, Curtis’ words seem eerily voyeuristic as he chillingly catalogues a girl’s seizures, which reflected his own chronic epilepsy.
