DM are back with the timeliest of timely songs…
Shake the Disease was released on April 29, 1985. It was the best 16th birthday present a girl could have ever asked for. It’s absolutely my favorite DM song.
I saw Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine Tour last night at Jiffy Lube Live in Manassas, Va. A wonderful show as always – Dave Gahan spends an insane 2 hours, whirling like a dervish and running all over the stage.
I filmed the last song of the night – Never Let Me Down Again. Audio is weird as I shot this on my Canon PowerShot. Still, a great performance by the band.
Depeche Mode has just released the video for Heaven – the first single from their upcoming album Delta Machine.
I’m surprised I didn’t short out my laptop with drool when this image appeared onscreen –
Martin looks lovely as well.
Also, love this other shot of Dave –
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.”
I have loved Depeche Mode since 1983. I have been fascinated by Dave Gahan for just about as long. Interview Magazine has done an article on him, with questions asked by actress Chloe Sevigny. A nice read. Some nice pics as well…
