80’s Music Month: Depeche Mode

Few bands sound great in a club, while driving your car, or getting busy in your bed.  Depeche Mode manages all this with their best songs. My favorite album of theirs was Violator, which was released in March of 1990, but I’m going to let that slide into the 80’s.  Strangelove and Never Let Me Down have their classic atmospheric funky sound, with S&M-type lyrics.  I had never seen the cool B&W videos to these songs until today.

Personal Jesus and I Feel You are my 2 favorite Depeche Mode songs.  Here is a good cover of Personal Jesus by Johnny Cash.
