A scientist somewhere, probably Finland or Norway, figured out an equation for the most depressing day of the year, which always seems to fall on a Monday in January. This is Blue Monday. Apparently, the scientist was also a New Order fan. For 2012, it’s January 23.
To celebrate and commiserate, I made this lovely, dark New Wave inspired mix to get you through the day.
