Any fans here?

You are not alone- i love Depeche mode, have all their records, and Violator is my all time favourite album .

Have only ever had chance to see them once, on thier Exciter tour, but got back stage passes, and our seats were next to the bands familys'!

For many years i dreamed of being Mrs Gahan...blush

So, if you are still around Pm, what's your fave track?

Ah, la mode, my first boyfriend at uni was a devotee. I never got into them so much but they are an 80s fave for sure.

I liked them in my teens.

janeite Sat 12-Jul-08 18:48:27

I liked them as a teenager but only remember a couple of tracks now. I love "Somebody" and "Personal Jesus".

I should come clean - the Mode are almost a secret vice of mine, as nearly everyone else I play them to looks at me if I've taken leave of my senses. Philistines. They so remind me of my youth - sigh! I am mainly fixated on their earlier work, although I do extend as far as Violator.

Ah, confession cleanses the soul. Now I just need my own personal Jesus...

Remember hugging my pillow and crying over some boy playing "See you" on my orange compact record player! I love that song and many others - used to love Depeche Mode at school and write it in on my pencil case!

Enjoy the Silence

One of the best songs ever written.

Words are very unnecessary, they can only do harm.

Lucewheel Sat 12-Jul-08 19:15:54

Yep another DM fan here

The unforgettable fire is my favourite album, I still listen to it v loudly in my kitchen whilst cooking

Lucewheel Sat 12-Jul-08 19:17:51

Whoops that is U2 - lol.

Do love depeche though

Bbbee Sat 12-Jul-08 19:37:35

enjoy the silence (I know you could do this yourself)

daftpunk Sat 12-Jul-08 19:48:48

thats my fave DM song Bbbee!

ButterflyMcQueen Sat 12-Jul-08 19:51:56

blasphemous rumours and enjoy the silence and leave in silence on ipod

used to loathe the leather clad dave gahn in my youf but now i probably 'would'

Raahh Sat 12-Jul-08 20:26:27


We are not alone!
I love the live version of Somebody on the 101 cd/dvd, is spinechilling...

I have never understood why it is seen as a bit, naff, to love the Mode...

I am out and proud.

As i said, Violator is my fave, mainily because iut came out during my first year at Uni, and it was the soundtrack to that time.

I adore 'Halo' off that.

Raahh Sat 12-Jul-08 20:27:42

And i really really 'would' (Dh is scowling)!grin

southeastastra Sat 12-Jul-08 20:28:55

Raahh Sat 12-Jul-08 20:30:01

pre- Violator., Somebody, and Shake the Disease are my favourite tracks

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Sat 12-Jul-08 20:31:26

We were playing DM this morning.

Raahh Sat 12-Jul-08 20:33:09

Was heavily pregnant and had broken my arm 2 years ago when had tickets to see them, so couldn't go [sob]

southeastastra Sat 12-Jul-08 20:33:30

i like the one where he's dressed as a king with a deckchair and john the revelator

PurpleOne Sun 13-Jul-08 19:04:03

I've seen them 5 times now, and they just keep getting better.
Although, Exciter was a bit of a let down IMVHO

We had somebody played at our wedding because when I played it to DW as she read the lyrics and suggested it for our first dance she cried! to be honest it was a bit too slow for that, but no regrets as the lyrics are bang on for me. I got into them after buying 101 in Germany and gradually bought up the back catalogue on CD, plus a few German 12" imports.

Raahh Mon 14-Jul-08 21:02:22

i said that Somebody is one of my fave DM tracks. And def the 101 version.When i met Dh he bought me the concert dvd- it was so great, to see what i had been listening to for about 17 years! i do think that in this country they have always been underrated, but have always been huge in the States.
