Day 12 Your favorite musical artist’s life story

This is one of those “questions” that really needs inflection to make sense. The person I swiped this from interpreted it to mean “favorite biopic movie about a musical artist” so I’ll go with that too.

A lot of it is about Ian and Deborah’s marriage and struggles therein but given it was written from her point of view, that makes sense.

Anyway…. to add a little substance to this day… My favorite Joy Division song from the movie:
