30 Day Song Challenge, Day 11: A Song from Your Favorite Band

This is another one of those “Really?” topics.

Depeche Mode has been around for almost 30 years and choosing one song from them is like asking, “Which do you prefer: glazed, chocolate, buttermilk, twists, with sprinkles…” etc.

But I’ll make it easy with one of my favorites.

Depeche Mode – “Home”

Crappy video quality for such a good song. The injustice.

Honorable Mention

Freelove (Single remix)

Only When I Lose Myself

Note that none of those songs include former member Alan Wilder but are all worth listening to. While the band was amazing with him, I think fans ought to appreciate the fact that over the years, singer Dave Gahan battled a heroin addiction, cleaned himself up in a mere six weeks, had a malignant tumor removed from his bladder and is still going strong.

Appreciate what you have, folks.

  1. I love Depeche Mode too. Would one day like to know how you met them (If you haven’t blogged about it already), and was it with Alan Wilder? I recognize “life in the so-called space age.” Martin Gore writes the most beautiful things: “Here is a page from the emptiest stage/ A cage of the heaviest cross ever made/ A gauge of the deadliest trap ever laid.”


  2. Sure was. As for “Life in the So-Called Space Age,” I had that on a license frame way back when. Seems to still ring true today even if the album which the phrase appeared on was released in 1985.

    I also had “Pain and Suffering in Various Tempos” at the top of the blog for a bit. I like to mix things up 🙂
