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.
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.

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.”
I indeed blogged about it a few years ago. You can see it here: https://holographicmeatloaf.com/2008/03/19/18-years-ago-today/
Note, however, that you won’t be able to see all of the pictures since I haven’t upgraded my Flickr account for a few years.
Thank you! That’s one happy memory.
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 🙂
