What Do You Want From Me?

Monaco
1997

The best song New Order never made?

While some have attributed the (limited) success of Monaco - and in particular this song - to its similarity with New Order and the fact that they weren't making music at the time, that ignores the sheer pop brilliance of this track. The chorus is fantastically catchy. The guitar in the bridge is great. And Peter Hook's bass strides through the mix with the kind of metronomic imperiousness only he seems capable of. Absolutely unstoppable.
