A heaven, a gateway, a hope
Just like the feeling inside, it's no joke
And though it hurts me to treat you this way
Betrayed by words i've never heard, too hard to say

Up, down, turn around
Please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight, I think I'll walk alone
I'll find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around
Please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight, I think I'll walk alone
I'll find my soul as I go home

Ooooo x 8

Each way I turn I know I'll always try
To break this circle that's been placed around me
From time to time I find I've lost some need
It was urgent to myself, I do believe

Up, down, turn around
Please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight, I think I'll walk alone
I'll find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around
Please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight, I think I'll walk alone
I'll find my soul as I go home

Oh, you've got green eyes, oh, you've got blue eyes, oh, you've got grey eyes
Oo, you've got green eyes, oh, you've got blue eyes, you've got grey eyes
And I've never seen anyone quite like you before
No, I've never met anyone quite like you before

Thoughts from above hit the people down below
People in this world, we have no place to go
Thoughts from above hit the people down below
People in this world, we have no place to go
Thoughts from above hit the people down below
People in this world, we have no place to go
Thoughts from above hit the people down below
People in this world, we have no place to go
Oh, it's the last time, oh, it's the last time
Oh, it's the last time, oh, it's the last time, oh, it's the last time
Oh, I've never met anyone quite like you before
Oh, no, I've never met anyone quite like you before

Shhh timmy
Trainspotting & opiods hmm —my local Norwegian discount supermarket has deal on fresh Papaver Somniferum —I might make some tea and chill to RP
it’s a plan? naa, but I like the idea.
Waiting for John Fahey? yea yea
Oh YES!!! 
Sounds  like old Pure Prairie League..the chicken train song. 
The USA is trainspotting with opiods.
Ah man, yes, takes me back to younger days when you could dance your ass off in the original 9:30 club at 930 F St. and knew you'd live forever. Thank you Bill! Thank you HFS!
 All day long with New Order.
Y'all remember that crew from Trainspotting? Well, that crew now exists in every small town and suburb of this country. It ain't jus Appalachia folks. This heroin epidemic is nationwide and killing over 25000 kids each year.

holy shit, that's a lot of drum thumping thrum dumping. Might it have been the Arcade Fire's drummer's dad?

*boggle* but this is their BEST song.
The movie: very creepy and hard to stomach for my wimpy eyes.
The entire soundtrack to the movie: ABSOLUTELY ORGASMIC!! {#Clap} 
an early '80s theme. agree that this Gen Xer is the wrong version. 
Out standing performance.
At work. 4AM
About to fall asleep.
I hit PSD numerous times-all songs with < 100 BPM.

THEN  THIS!!!  YEAH!
I drove around with Power Corruption & Lies on one side and Factus on the other in my tape player for a whole summer - Lots of great memories! 
Everybody in my mushrooming multitude of homeless camps loves this groovy song...  we be dancing like bowlegged gypsy muleskinners...
An absolute classic!  Always welcome to my ears.
Hahahaaha!!  I **just** had this soundtrack out & playing in MY car a few days ago!  Its a great one...!!  {#Bounce}
When I have the Trainspotting CD in the car, this is one that gets multiple plays. So, it must be good?
{#Bananajumprope}
Please make it stop.
SUPERIOR!!! {#Cheers}
TERRIBLE!!!
That's a relief after Kasabian.
Most excellent indeed.

Yes, - great isn't it?
Good in itself - but almost all of the tracks are exciting and part of the whole film experience. Sometimes I wish that I was that type of peron.
I always get instantly transported to an open dark club with a wide tile floor and start danceing my skinny bizness around and around, always!
It just keeps going and going
I don't mind New Order but this is pedestrian tripe = 1
 
And to RDO - I guess this means I won't make your Christmas card list this year.

 

One of my faves of ALL TIME!!    If you don't like it, then I hate your friggin' guts...{#Lol}




Everybody in my church loves this song...
 
Wow what a nice change,.thee memories....used to love these guys!
like it
On a plane last month flying back from Europe to USA, they had "The Best of Joy Division/New Order" as one of the few music selections.  This song was one of them and it made the flight oh so much better.......

The muppets have synched with the bass line. Harmonic convergence or Soviet conspiracy? 
PSD, anyone?  
Lots of noise, but fun high velocity noise. If you can't dance to this, you must be dead. 
I, too, took a date to see this. Old southern, conservative boy - teeheehee -that was fun.
We've been married 23 years - he's still old, southern conservative - I'm not. It works. Checks and balances. And he still likes seeing alternative (?) movies with me.

The proper version circa 1982 really is far superior that is what I am rating. Not about being some kind of purist or snobby. Simply the facts, isay this because I think the RP crowd would agree if they had the opportunity to compare!
 
I can't agree more! I love the original version from "Factus 8."

the original 12" is light years better than this. the original = 9 to 10.

  Agreed . The original 12" single version kicks it..

In punk yoga be doubled...  love it...  soooo good for the external acoustic meatus...  we be dancing...

Always liked this song.  Sounds like they replaced their guitar strings with rubber bands.  The rest of this soundtrack is fantastic.
Damn, this is repetitive.{#Eek}

Original 12" version is much more powerful. Would be a 9.

More New Order please!
What a soundtrack!  I never knew who Brian Eno was before this CD.  Since then I have bought most of his prodigous ambient output.

Great song!!

We used to dance and rock out to this song at Buffalo State College during the mid-1980s while listening to WBNY.

Didn't see "Usual Suspects" but I went on a first date to see "Trainspotting." It was her choice to see this movie. Amazing soundtrack. Disturbing film, but that was the point, wasn't it? I married that date and now, over 10 years later, we're still together. Not really sure what that says, but it worked for us.
I think I just heard a record skip. Does that happen on the internet? :whistle:

At the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, you could have walked out if you didn't like the film. Who forced you to sit through it?

Not only was it creepy, but then she follows up all that with this. "Note that I may have this film confused with "The Usual Suspects." "

Vintage New Order - gives me a lift running up hills.

oy vey....how do you really feal wackjob? excellent song from great movie.
This song is pure, unbridled joy! 10+ :bounce:
I do like New Order, particularly the last few albums, but this song sucks the big one, IMHO - bleak, tuneless, and plain tedious.
Great song! :dancingbanana_2:
Hey - this is fun! I wuz too busy in the 80s listening to Remain in Light over and over and over and over.... Clearly I missed out on some good stuff.
Sick. That was like eating sticky chocolate pudding there Bill with that New Order pairing.
Haven't seen the movie in forever, but I remember it being great. And true, this song is great on so many levels, hooHah!
great song...great movie.
Nice transition from Mighty Diamonds! :clap:

Tony99 was refering to '24 hour party people' not 'Trainspotting you ranting muppet! Its good to see 'Trainspotting' did what it was supposed to do, in shocking the general public into the goings-on in the seedy disgusting world of Heroin addiction, in the hope that many kids of today wouldnt take that kind of filth.

Hmmm... couldn't help but think of Alan Partridge...
Early New Order. Immaculate pop music. Timeless! This is also the first recording where Bernard Sumner's voice sounds halfway decent. When Joy Division turned into New Order subsequent to Ian Curtis hanging himself, the band could not really decide who would do the singing. Stephen Morris tried for a while, but it was soon decided that Bernard should pick up the mike instead.
Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo... 10/10!
We-, well, dat's an 8, Right outta da gate! Isn't it? ...Yes it IS!!!
dancy fun!
oh youve got green eyes.
this is the one. i listened to this so many times back in the day that i fear it is ingrained into the gyri impenetrably.
Wonderful. Perhaps New Order's best.
"oh you got green eyes, oh you got brown eyes, oh you got blue eyes..." New Order rocks but not in concert!
This makes me feel like bobbing my head!
