Enjoy The Silence...

i still feel like writing, so here i am again, putting more effort into this blog of mine that many do not read. that's okay though, because it means the music is sort of a secret, and this blog is an almost hidden place to go. with that, i hope whoever reads this enjoys the posts, and enjoys the music. if not, then enjoy the silence...

yeah, so i've mentioned them several times on here before, and after just name checking them for the Editors post, i thought it was time to give them their due. one of the most influential electronic bands of all time and one that you just have to dance to, ladies and gentlemen, here is, Depeche Mode.

singer chino moreno of the Deftones, cites depeche mode singer david gahan as one of his biggest influences, and you can't deny the fact that the baritone singer is quite awesome. all of the songs he sings with depeche mode are killer, and along with martin gore and andrew fletcher, the present version of depeche mode is still making great music and selling out shows all over.

wait, but what about the above photo of four guys??? well there was also alan wilder who was the keyboardist for the band from 1982 to 1995. after he left to pursue his solo project, Recoil, the band stayed together as a three piece, with the occasional touring musicians to fill in the gaps. so, to this day, depeche mode has sold over 75 millions albums worldwide, and are the most successful electronic band of all time. i will always remember the late 80's early 90's of my life. the radio back then was good, and even though i was a child, i listened to all this great music from that source as well as my parents and their old records. i grew up with lots and lots of tunes around, and depeche mode happened to mixed in there as well.

there is only one album i want to post for this band. you all probably know what it is, but for those who don't, it's the bands most popular one to date. it spawned four incredible singles, and reached #1 in many places around the world. it's ranked #342 in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time, issue and stands today as the bands high point in song writing, and craft. the album is, Violator, and one not to be skipped. try out the songs, "personal jesus" "sweetest perfection" "world in my eyes" and "enjoy the silence" or better yet, the whole freekin' album, because each song is fantastic and totally awesome!!! get this now!!!

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence
