The Song Stuck In My Head: “THE SWEETEST CONDITION” by DEPECHE MODE (2001)

…Takin’ Hold Of The Hem Of Your Dress…

…Cleanliness Only Comes In Small Doses…

…Bodily Whole…

…But My Head’s In A Mess…

…Fueling Obsession That Borders Psychosis…

…It’s A Sad Disease…

…Creeping Through My Mind…

…Causing Disabilities…

…Of The Strangest Kind…

…Gettin’ Lost In The Folds Of Your Skirt…

…There’s A Price That I Pay For My Mission…

…A Body In Heaven…

…And A Mind Full Of Dirt…

…How I Suffer THE SWEETEST CONDITION

…Taken In By The Delicate Noise…

…Knocked To The Ground By The Subtle Thunder…

…Shackled And Bound By The Sound Of Your Voice…

…Wanderin’ Around In Silent Wonder.

THE SWEETEST CONDITIONIs From The 2001 DEPECHE MODE AlbumEXCITER

Well, My Peeps…

…I Really Wanted To Showcase This Song…

THE SWEETEST CONDITION

by DEPECHE MODE

…More Than All The Others I’ve Lovingly Listened To In The Past Couple Days.

It’s Songs Like This That Really Show The Lyrical Brilliance Put Forth On The Album…

EXCITER

…And It Honestly Makes Me Sad When I Consider How Ill Received The Album Was.

Even Some Of My Friends Whom ARE Fans Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…Didn’t Really Care For This Album.

"This Doesn't Sound Like Depeche Mode At All, Dude."

That’s What They’d (basically) Say.

To Which I’d (basically) Reply…

"If  You Mean It Doesn't Sound Like Euro-Electro-Synth-Pop, You're Right."

And Then, I’d (basically) Add…

"Listen To The Lyrics. It Is Depeche Mode. It's Also Beautiful. And I LOVE IT!"

.Period.

The Album IS Beautiful.

It’s Loaded With Heart…

…And The Lyrics Are Sincerely Heartfelt.

Just Because It Doesn’t Sound Exactly Like The DEPECHE MODE You Remember From The 1980s And 1990s Doesn’t Mean It’s Not DEPECHE MODE.

Some People Just Can’t Take It When Something New Comes Along That Doesn’t  Jive Exactly Like They Think It Should With That Which Came Before.

It’s Called Life, People.

Times Change.

Things Change.

People Change.

Governments Change.

Sounds Change.

That’s Why I Lovingly Embrace An Album Like…

EXCITER

…Without Hesitation.

It’s With Songs Like…

THE SWEETEST CONDITION

…That Make Loving It So Very Easy To Do.

I Love The Lyrics.

I Love The Sound.

I’ve Been Singing It To Myself Since Yesterday AND All Of This Morning, Thus Far.

So I Must Really Love The Song.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

I Don’t Need Convincing.

I Don’t Need Any Arm-Twisting.

I Know What I Like…

…And I LOVE This Beautiful Song…

…This Wonderful Album…

…This Amazing Band.

.PERIOD.

What More Could One Ask For?

In Regard To Life, Likely A Lot More.

In Regard To Music, And Its Infectious Nature,  Likely Very Little.

Come On, My Peeps…

…Give This One The Ole College Try.

Couldn’t Hurt, Could It???

NOT BLOODY LIKELY, Fo SHO!!!
