Vince Clarke remix of Blancmange’s “Living on the ceiling”
Living on the Ceiling is a song by British synthpop band Blancmange. It was released as the band’s 3rd single in 1982, taken from their debut album Happy Families. It became the band’s first (and biggest) UK Top 40 hit, peaking at #7 on the UK Singles Chart and being certified Silver by the BPI for sales in excess of 200,000 copies. The single also reached #5 on the Australian Singles Chart. Blancmange performed the song on Top of the Pops, but for broadcast on the show as well as on BBC radio, the track was edited to replace the lyric “Up the bloody tree” with “Up the cuckoo tree”.
