Ahhh - have lost my heart to Depeche Mode all over again.  This is my favourite all time DM song and possible the best footage of them, live at the Pasadena Rose Bowl, June 1988.  Track is a little bit hissy at the high end of the scale, but the footage is the clearest and I can forgive the high end hiss if I don't wear headphones.  Dave - my Elvis of Basildon.  One day, I will see them live.

Big fangirl moment - I am now officially in love with Dave Gahan (not that I wasn't before).  With love and thanks to [ profile] bethnoir xxx

Is simplicity best
Or simply the easiest?
The narrowest path
Is always the holiest
So walk on barefoot for me
Suffer some misery
If you want my love
If you want my love

Parts of this sounds like a mash up of Stripped, People Are People and In Your Room

Rockin' out wid da Mode!! - my favourite song for all time. For me, the lyrics just nail it for me. Long live Depeche Mode @-->-->--

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps

This was THE best song of my 20s - I heard it on MTV and it blew me away.  I missed their London O2 Tour back in May 2013, because I had to take my end of year exam.  Suffice to say, when they tour again, I will do my damnedest to get there.

I listen to it now and I am automatically 23 again. Lovelovelove you, Dave :-)

 When girls were swooning over Duran Duran, I was definitely a Depeche Mode lover. This song has been the most significant  song in my life. I know the sound has been tweaked a bit on this video (not an octave change, I just think they've made the song faster), but I am still in love.

In Your Room Lyrics )

In your room...Last night, I dreamt of my old house (circa early nineties), but for irony's sake i will nickname it Grimmauld Place (I know - all the HP fans will be filled with distaste).  The house was empty, save for the carpets and my old pale blue bedroom. Where time stands still....I slept on the oatmeal carpet, sun shone through the curtain-less window and I could feel the rays on my face. Will you let the morning come soon...?  In this dream, I had woken and padded downstairs - to find a twin self sleeping on the hideous spiral carpet in my front room. I laid on my side, trying to reassure the twin self, who was cold and running with sweat - that everything was going to be OK. Or will you leave me lying here....? We both closed our eyes and the sun warmed our faces and the souls of our feet.


Out of any dreams I have about the places I have lived, I only dream of this house.  Not my childhood one, or the current one - I continually return here. I have mixed feelings about this place; I experienced a paradox of the emptiness of being lonely, but also the solitude of being alone.  I was self-sufficient and and had the most 'unchecked' creativity there i.e. I did art that pleased me rather than other people (murals, indie music and tie-dye clothes - ah the nineties). Yet I would say that I am happier and have achieved more creatively (and more successfully) as a mature adult, where I am now. I have no yearnings to return to my twenties - in fact I would dread returning there, whether in my old house or otherwise. During the dream, I heard this song. Why do I feel that I have lost something?

Will I always be here?

I post this, because it was in my dream the night before last.The only original video to this song is a bad repro on Youtube. Someone commented that all they remember of the video, was seeing a Lonesome King carting around a deckchair.  Think it was DM's idea of Dave as King Canute.

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here, in my arms.
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm.

Enjoy the Silence...

Why, oh why didn't they put this one on Delta Machine? The album version hurts my ears.  Think they could have reworked the chorus a little (even stay in tune a bit, eh guys?), but even so - get KellerTechnik or DominatrixRMX (probably one and the same guy) on the job, or whoever remixed this studio version. I would buy it in a heartbeat.
