Love Will Tear Us Apart, Joy Division=

After being locked out of our office for over an hour this morning because every single person who works at The L Magazine either forgot or has recently lost their keys, I was feeling sorta bad. Then I went to Pitchfork and listened to a stream of Broken Social Scene covering “Love Will Tear Us Apart” for the Time Traveler’s Wife soundtrack, and I started feeling better. Now I’m caught in a massive You Tube web of different artists covering the song, and I’m probably happier than I’ve been in months. Click through for some of the best and worst. I’ll leave it up to you to decide which is which.

Adam Green
