A 1933 Version of New Order's "Blue Monday"

(Video Link)

In celebration of Blue Monday's fifty year anniversary last year, Orkestra Obsolete did a cover of the song using only instruments that were available fifty years before it was released -in 1933. Instruments used include a glass harp, a pump organ, a dulcimer, a zither and a musical saw. The result is surprisingly accurate and entirely unique at the same time.

Thirty-third anniversary (in 2016). For a moment there I thought I was older than I am and was going to tell you to stay off my lawn. *whew* Crisis averted (for now).
