Tell us your favourite Joy Division song to win two tickets to Friday's screening of "Joy Division" from Images Festival.

Our friends at Images Festival have very nicely given us two passes to the screening of Grant Gee’s documentary Joy Division, screening this Friday, February 5, 2010 in Toronto. So, in order to make sure the swag goes to a true JD fan, we’re asking you to leave a comment below naming your favourite Joy Division song. We’ll collect all the entries and pick someone at random to get the tickets. The Guardian called the documentary “a must-see” in their 2007 review:

This is a very powerful and moving film that perhaps goes deeper than Control in exploring the full reasons for [Ian] Curtis’s suicide…. There are no actors or recreations. There are no twists for dramatic effect. It’s all vividly real. […] Two full days after seeing Joy Division, the documentary, it’s difficult to shake off the impact of some of the interviews, or the feeling that this story is ongoing, in all of us, in the lives of people left behind, many of whom are only starting to understand what happened with the benefit of age and experience.

We’ve seen it, by the way, and it is every bit as fantastic as it sounds. And now you can see it on us! Click through to leave your comment and enter. The Rules:

  1. To enter, leave a comment below naming your favourite Joy Division song.
  2. One entry per person — in other words, multiple comments don’t get you more chances to win. That said, feel free to advocate for your song or convince others of its awesomeness. Banter!
  3. The draw will close on Thursday, February 4, 2010, at noon, EST. We’ll draw the winner Thursday afternoon.
  4. Make sure we have a way of contacting you — in other words, sign in with Twitter or Facebook, or make sure you leave your real email address (which won’t be visible to, or shared, with anyone else!)
