Watch New Order Cover "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)"

I forgot that Scott McKenzie’s countercultural anthem “San Francisco” existed but now that I remember, I really hope that Mad Men makes use of it during its final season next year — maybe to accompany Sally’s inevitable embrace of her inner flower power and her escape out west? Anyway, New Order are fans of the song too because they covered it at their show in San Francisco at the Civic Auditorium on Friday night. As always, a trusty fan was on hand to record the whole thing and you can watch it below and compare it to the original.

New Order’s been playing some new songs live recently so maybe they’ll announce an album soon.

  1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

    Best band of the 80′s. And still awesome.

    What an interesting way to start a post, sharing some HIGHLY RELEVANT facts about how you forgot a song (strong music journalism!), and then VERY RELEVANTLY tying it in to some TV show you like. Then punting completely on commenting on the song at all. In the least. (It’s not bad!) Very good writing. Solid.
