The Endless Note

Cover Story – Love Will Tear Us Apart

This Joy Division song is one of my all time favourite songs, however, in 1983 Paul Young covered it on his debut album “No Parlez” surely one of the worst cover versions ever.

The guitarist in his band actually toured with THe Who in 1989 as a second guitarist, Townshend was playing acoustic only at the time to help protect his ears, and bassist Pino Palladino has played with The Who since the death of John Entwistle.

Here is the original and a couple of other cover versions.
