Joy Division's Atmosphere - The Fly
« on: March 09, 2020, 10:46:38 AM »
So I was watching Peaky Blinders over the weekend, and during a funeral procession scene set to joy Division's Atmosphere, my wife came in from the other room to see what the music was, she thought it sounded like a slowed down Fly. Hadn't noticed before, but yeah...

Not really seeing the resemblance but it is a good song

Well-used in Stranger Things as well.
There's a bible verse,
says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

Tis me favourite Joy Division song. I too, am not hearing any likeness with The Fly
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

JD are probably my favourite band. It sounds nothing like the fly to my ears but each to their own.

It's there in the melody.

Slower obviously and subtle.
