Amazing Songs You’ve Never Heard Nor Heard Of: “THE DARKEST STAR” by DEPECHE MODE (2005)

“…Oh, You Dark One

Eternal Outsider

Caught In The Spider’s Web You’ve Spun…”

“…Oh, You Blind One

Gentle And Kind One

Seeing The World As A Loaded Gun…”

THE DARKEST STARIs Likely The Most Underrated Jam From The Band DEPECHE MODE Off Of Their 2005 AlbumPLAYING THE ANGEL !!!

“…I Don’t Want You To Change

Anything You Do

I Don’t Want You To Be

Someone Else For Me…”

“…Stay As You Are

THE DARKEST STAR

Shining For Me

Majestically.”

So Why Do I Consider…

THE DARKEST STAR

by DEPECHE MODE

…To Be The Most Underrated Song From The Album…

PLAYING THE ANGEL

??? ???

Well…

…Honestly…

…For ME…

…It’s The Lyrics.

The Lyrics To This Song Are Exceptionally Potent.

They’re Also Exceptionally Beautiful.

The Song Itself…

…In Regard To Sound…

…Is A Very Slow Number.

It’s Rather Quirky, To Be Honest.

It’s Not A Song Many People Bothered To Give-Up Any Time Listening To.

It’s The Last Song On The Album…

…And I Think People Just Utterly Dismissed It.

To ME…

THE DARKEST STAR

…Is A Song That SHOULD HAVE Been A True GRAMMY AWARD CONTENDER.

Period.

But…

…Alas…

…It Was Not Meant To Be.

Like I Said…

…I Don’t Think Many Peeps Bothered To Even Listen To This One.

It’s Very VERY Different.

But That’s Always Been One Of The Strengths Of The Music From…

DEPECHE MODE

…As They Have Often Been Very VERY Different.

I’d Say…

…In Many MANY Cases…

DEPECHE MODE

…Are WAY WAY WAY Ahead Of Their Time.

Songs Like This One…

THE DARKEST STAR

…Are Proof Of That.

If You’ve Bothered To Listen To This Song…

…And I Mean Really Bothered To Listen Listen To It…

…You Already Know What I’m Talking About.

THE DARKEST STAR

…Is An Amazing Song…

…And A Truly Forgotten Classic.

Then Again…

…I Suppose It’s NOT A Forgotten Classic…

…Simply Because Y’all NEVER Knew It Existed In The First Place.

I’ve Actually Considered This Song To Be MY LIFE’S STORY Since First Hearing It Back In 2005.

Being The Proverbial “BLACK SHEEP”…

…Or “THE DARKEST STAR” Of The Family Is Never Easy.

In Fact…

…To Be Sure…

…It’s A Full-Time Gig From Which There Are ZERO-Days-Off.

I Don’t Strive To Be Said “BLACK SHEEP”, Nor “THE DARKEST STAR“, But I Don’t Seem To Be Able To Not Be It.

I Can’t Not Be Me.

Even If That Means I’m The “Eternal Outsider”…

Right?!?

RIGHT!!!

πŸ˜‰

… … …

Please Try To Have A Decent Day, My Peeps.

It’s FRIDAY EVE!

So Let’s Get Through This One.

I’ll Do What I Can To Help Y’all Out.

Of That, You Can Be Sure.

  1. Bradley I can relate to this. I’m listening to the song as I write this, you’re right I have never heard it before. I have always been the baby of the family and the only girl and the black sheep to boot because I am a musician. I don’t know if this makes any sense to you, but knowing you it probably does. LOL Peace my friend!

  2. You know, I think I HAVE maybe heard that song before.

    Seriously, you’ve got to love the song which gives title to the album that is DM’s best work since Violator.

    Oof, that’s an ugly sentence, but I think you can follow.
