New Order's Love Vigilantes is the New Wave Sixth Sense

I don't think I can overstate how much I love my wife, Liz. We were just listening to New Order's Love Vigilantes and she pointed out that the protagonist soldier returning home is a ghost. I know every word, I love this song, and I never realized this. Am I completely dense?


  1. No, not dense. That's the fun of this story, it's the possibility of a ghost, but not conclusively so. Could also be a simple O. Henry twist.

  2. Would the O. Henry twist be that she had died of sadness at the telegram? That's what I always thought. "She lay upon the floor."
