Blue Monday – Orgy
The 1998 Orgy version of New Order’s Blue Monday fits Murray in the obvious ways. Blue is in his soul as the Blue Arrow and a member of Big Blue Nation. The Nuggets even have a predominately blue uniform.
But within the lyrics we can read a little of Jamal’s edge:
"How does it feel to treat me like you do? When you’ve laid your hands upon me And told me who you are I thought I was mistaken I thought I heard your words Tell me, how do I feel? Tell me, now, how do I feel?"
If you think of the above lyrics in the context of Murray’s beef with Lakers’ guard Lonzo Ball, it’s a biting yet interestingly polite rebuke. Jamal is tough as nails but he’s not petty or mean. A poetic takedown may be just his style. Speaking of style, the beat seems to fit Murray, stylistically as well.
