Depeche Mode – Shake The Disease

I was having a REALLY BAD DAY yesterday…and all I could do, was sing this song in my head, all day…as it was exactly how I felt.

I like how the video makes you feel sick (dizzy). LOL

_____________________________________________________

I’m not going down on my knees, Begging you to adore me

Can’t you see it’s misery And torture for me

When I’m misunderstood

Try as hard as you can, I’ve tried as hard as I could

To make you see

How important it is for me

Here is a plea From my heart to you Nobody knows me As well as you do

You know how hard it is for me To shake the disease

That takes hold of my tongue In situations like these

Understand me

Some people have to be Permanently together

Lovers devoted to Each other forever

Now I’ve got things to do

And I’ve said before that I know you have too

When I’m not there In spirit I’ll be there

Here is a plea From my heart to you

Nobody knows me As well as you do

You know how hard it is for me To shake the disease

That takes hold of my tongue In situations like these

Understand me

Depeche Mode – Where’s the Revolution

new song from the new album: Spirit

You’ve been kept down
You’ve been pushed ’round
You’ve been lied to
You’ve been fed truths
Who’s making your decisions?
You or your religion
Your government, your countries
You patriotic junkies

[Chorus]
Where’s the revolution?
Come on, people
You’re letting me down
Where’s the revolution?
Come on, people
You’re letting me down

[Verse 2]
You’ve been pissed on
For too long
Your rights abused
Your views refused
They manipulate and threaten
With terror as a weapon
Scare you till you’re stupefied
Wear you down until you’re on their side

[Chorus]
Where’s the revolution?
Come on, people
You’re letting me down
Where’s the revolution?
Come on, people
You’re letting me down

[Bridge]
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The engine’s humming
The engine’s humming
The engine’s humming
The engine’s humming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The engine’s humming
The engine’s humming
The engine’s humming
The engine’s humming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

[Chorus]
Where’s the revolution?
Come on, people
You’re letting me down
Where’s the revolution?
Come on, people

I know all the lyrics off by heart.

tempovision

‘Tempovision’ – Etienne de Crecy. 2000

smooth, funky and oh so amazing.

walking-wounded

‘Walking Wounded’ – Everything But the Girl. 1996

Brilliant songs. brilliant music. so smooth and so soulful.

thursday-afternoon

‘Thursday Afternoon’ – Brian Eno. 1985

I’ve listened to this album ‘literally’ thousands of times.
…and I only have 25 Brian Eno albums. LOL

Ultra.png

‘Ultra’ – Depeche Mode. 1997

I know all the lyrics on this album too.

manafon

‘Manfon’ – David Sylvian. 2009

David Sylvian at his best. (IMO)

both the film and the soundtrack are brilliant.

ascenseur-pour-lechafaud

‘Ascenseur pour l’échafaud’ – Miles Davis. 1957

Depeche Mode are the greatest band in the world

i’ve been a fan since 1980, but mostly listen to stuff from Ultra onwards.
i so love this viedo from the album…and yes, they have a wonderful sense of humour…

Ultra is for me, there best album, as i love ALL of the songs, and know them ALL off by heart ❤

Dangerous

The things you do

Aren’t good for my health

The moves you make

You make for yourself

The means you use

Aren’t meant to confuse

Although they do

They’re the ones that I would choose

And I wouldn’t want it any other way

You wouldn’t let me anyway

Dangerous

The way you leave me wanting more

Dangerous

That’s what I want you for

Dangerous

When I am in your arms

Dangerous

Know I will come to harm

The lies you tell

Aren’t meant to deceive

They’re not there

For me to believe

I’ve heard

Your vicious words

You know by now

It takes a lot to see me hurt

And I couldn’t take it any other way

But there’s a price I have to pay
