The standout track of my new Madchester Monday night was Paul Oakenfold‘s remix of “W.F.L. (Wrote For Luck)” by the Happy Mondays (re-titled “W.F.L. (Think About The Future Mix)”).

In anticipation of the new party, Blue Monday, I’m DJing this Monday, October 22nd, at Velvet Lounge, today’s Song of the Day is the one from which the party takes it’s name.  New Order’s “Blue Monday,” released in 1983 on Factory Records, has the distinction of being the biggest selling 12″ single of all time.
