DEPECHE MODE’s “PHOTOGRAPHIC” (1981): A Song So Addictive I’m Already Hurtin’ For Another Dose!

Alright…

…I’ll Totally Level With Y’all, My Peeps…

PHOTOGRAPHIC

by DEPECHE MODE

…Is ONE SONG Where The Lyrics Are Actually The Secondary Consideration To Me.

I Know, I Know…

…It Doesn’t Happen Very Often.

Usually, The Lyrics Are THE Major Point Of It All For Me.

But Not This Time.

However…

…I Do Truly Enjoy The Lyrics.

A Sample, You Ask?

Okie Dokie.

🙂

A White House…

…A White Room…

…The Program Of Today…

…Lights On…

…Switch On…

…Your Eyes Are Far Away…

…The Map Represents You…

…And The Tape Is Your Voice…

…Follow All Along, You…

…’Til You Recognize The Choice…

…I Take Pictures…

The Main Focus Of This Song…

…Honestly…

…Is The PULSING…

…DRIVING…

…UNRELENTING INFECTIOUSNESS Of THE BEAT.

Period.

ESPECIALLY When You’re Listening To The LIVE Version Of The Song…

…Which Is Exactly What I’m Doing As I Type This.

The STUDIO Version Is BRILLIANT.

The LIVE Version Simply KICKS.

And It Doesn’t Just KICK…

…It KICKS HARD!

😀       😀

PHOTOGRAPHIC

…Was Originally Released In 1981 On The Debut Album Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…Called…

SPEAK & SPELL

…And It’s Been A Fan-Favorite Since.

Alright…

…Time For MORE Leveling, My Peeps.

For Those Of You Who Know Anything About…

DEPECHE MODE

…Then You Know Their First Hit Song Was…

JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

…Which Also Debuted On The Same Album.

I’ll Say It Right Now…

…Just So We’re All Very VERY Clear…

JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

…Is A Truly Fun Song, And I Do Enjoy It.

BUT…

…It Doesn’t Hold A Candle To…

PHOTOGRAPHIC

…In Any Way Whatsoever.

Period.

Needless To Say…

…I’ve Been Going Back-And-Forth All Night Long Between The STUDIO And LIVE Versions.

Y’all Know Me And My Love Of The Musical Stylings Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…Which Is Why I’m Very Sure You’ll Let Me Gust About This One As Much As I Want.

Right?!

RIGHT!!!

(*teehehe*)

Okay Then…

…I WILL!!!

Ya Know, Since Y’all Are Being So Kind.

😉

I’m Very Sure The Song…

PHOTOGRAPHIC

…Is Likely On A Metric-Ass-Ton Of Personal “TOP 10 DEPECHE MODE Songs” Lists.

It Really Is THAT Good, My Peeps.

If You’re A Newcomer To The World That Is…

DEPECHE MODE

…And You’re Really Serious About Really Checking Them Out And Are Really Looking For A Place To Begin The Journey…

PHOTOGRAPHIC

…Would Be My FIRST Recommendation.

Many May Tell You To Start With…

JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

…But I’d Balk On That.

It Wasn’t Their First Great Song.

It Was Just Their First Commercially Successful Song.

There’s A BIG DIFF, My Peeps.

A BIG DIFF, Indeed.

Honestly Honestly, My Peeps…

…I’d Take…

PHOTOGRAPHIC

…Over…

JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

…Any Day…

…And Then I’d Ask For A Second Helping.

😉

If You’re Even Just A LITTLE BIT CURIOUS…

…I Say Pull-The-Trigger And Give…

PHOTOGRAPHIC

…The Ole College-Try.

I Promise, My Peeps, You (likely) Will Not Be Disappointed.

SEE, My Peeps…

…Now You’re CURIOUS!

HA!

MISSION: ACCOMPLISHED

!!!

😀       😀       😀

HAHAHA!
Oh Dear, I Haven’t Laughed That Much This Early In The Morning For Quite Some Time. You’ve Gotta Hand It To Smak, He Never Fails At Making Me Giggle A Bundle.
Sheer Perfection For An Early Morning Read AND Laugh, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

Resort’s Snow Won’t Be Pure This Year; It’ll Be Sewage ~ Well, that stinks!

Cops fatally shoot suspect wanted for impregnating 11-year-old The tragedy is that a child was robbed of its father. We mean the as-yet-unborn child, not the one the guy knocked up.

Obama: Jay-Z ‘knows what my life is like’ At first we were gonna scoff. We reconsidered when we realized that President Obama has thus far avoided the sexual pitfalls that marred Bill Clinton’s time in office. Like the man said, “I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.”

Since I Can’t Seem To Get Myself Off To Sleep, I’m Drowsily Watching This Flick, Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN.
Oooo… I Wonder If It’ll Give Me Nightmares. I Suppose Anything’s Possible. Gotta Be Asleep, Though, To Have A Dream, Good Or Bad. 😉

So I’ll Take That As A Good Thing.

😉

KENNETH BRANAGH

…Does A Truly Wonderful Directing Job On This One.

The Story Is Much Truer To The Original “FRANKENSTEIN” Works…

…And This Version Is NOT For The Squeamish.

BRANAGH Totally Goes For Our Jugular In His Adaptation Of The Classic Story.
