This Song…

HERE’S TO THE NIGHT

by EVE 6

…Gained A Whole New Level Of Relevance With Me During The Latter Portion Of 2000, And Well Into 2001.

To ME, It Was An Anthem For The Always Coming And Always Going Military Person.

I’d Venture To Say Most Of Y’all Have Had A Friend Or Relative In The Armed Forces.

And, Because I Ventured There, I’m Also Venturing Y’all Understand The Process Of Taking “Shore Leave” Or “Liberty” As We Called It.

It’s Horrid.

You Come Home For A Couple Days…

…And Then You’re Gone For Months And Months.

You Come Home Again For Maybe A Week Or So…

…And Then Your Ass Is Out The Door For The Next Year.

For Those Of You Whom Have Never Had To Deal With This Situation, Trust Me, I Envy You.

Going Home On “Shore Leave” Was Almost Always The Best Part Of My Year.

Going Back To Wherever I Was Stationed At The Time Was Always The Biggest Downer.

I May Have Loved My Job In The Navy…

…But There Was Nothing I Hated More So Than Having To Up And Leave My Family And Friends.

I Never Got Used To Saying Goodbye.

Never.

But, You Suck-It-Up AND You Deal-With-It.

Period.

You Didn’t Have Any Other Options.

That’s Why I Was Drawn To This Song.

I Heard It.

I Listened To It Over And Over.

I Fell In Love With It.

It Was Just So Damned Relevant.

It Fit My Life Situation Perfectly, At That Time.

To This Day, I Have A Very Tender Place In My Heart For This Jam.

It Reminds Me Of An Exceptionally Crazy-Hard Period In My Life.

It Reminds Me Of BOTH The Good AND The Bad Of Said Crazy-Hard Period.

This Song Has Become Quite The Staple In My Life’s Journey.

That’s A Good Thing, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

😀          😀

Please Do Try To Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

I Shall Endeavor To Do The Same.

I Wish Us ALL Luck.

L8r L8r, My Tater-Tots.

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…

…Photographic Pictures…

…Bright Light…

…Dark Room…

…Bright Light…

…Dark Room…

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

!!!
