For me this is easily one of New Order's best songs, but widely unknown due it's lowly status as a b-side of `True Faith'. Both tracks were released in 1987 and were produced by Stephen Hague. If `1963' had been released as a single, it would have been a huge hit, but alas that never happened.
New Order occasionally included it in their live repertoire, but it never got the airing it deserved.
Here is a audio clip of the original and a live clip from US during the 1989 `Technique' tour.
