Shake the Disease by Depeche Mode

Standard

Well, it seems a shame to have a blog but not to contribute to it on a daily basis. My issue is my move. I’ve finally done the big part and have moved 80% of our belongings from GA to MD. Now my time is full of unpacking etc.

I figure the easiest thing to do to ensure that I have regular posts is to post about my favorite songs. Song # 1 is an oldie but a goody!

Shake the Disease by Depeche Mode How can you not love a song that begins “I’m not going down on my knees, begging you to adore me. Can’t you see it’s misery and torture for me?” Martin Gore is one hell of a songwriter and Dave Gahan can sing the hell out of his songs. Oh, and the best 16th birthday present ever – they released this song 4/29/85. “Understand me. Understand me. Understand me. Understand me.”
