As part of our Now We're Talking special issue, we share songs from artists who have talking - sung - through their mental health issues and shared their burdens.
Has melancholy ever been so devastatingly expressed than on Closer’s penultimate track? All traces of anger and resentment have been removed, with Ian Curtis recounting in a resigned, even neutral fashion, what is seemingly the aftermath of a funeral (“No words could explain, no actions determine / Just watching the trees and the leaves as they fall”). Immaculately produced by Martin Hannett, the genuinely otherworldly music – sounding like it’s coming direct from the afterlife – makes for an unforgettable backdrop.
