Today I bought the CD single of New Order's Crystal. When I hear it I remember seeing the videoclip on MTV in Stockholm about 2 months ago. Before that I'd only heard a rather stark & boring remix on a dance-orientated radio station. But the videoclip was somehow mindblowing. I remember standing in front of the TV that evening, watching. I remember everything about that hotel room. It was only a videoclip, but I didn't want it to end--it was as if it was the most profound thing that had ever happened to me. The song changed Stockholm for me. In a way it also changed my life. Mysterious, idiotic, laughable, but true. Now I'm in Sydney listening to Lee Coombs' remix.
