An Amazing Song That’s Eating Me Alive: “POLICY Of TRUTH” by DEPECHE MODE (1990)

“…Now You’re Standing There Tongue Tied

You’d Better Learn Your Lesson Well

Hide What You Have To Hide

And Tell What You have To Tell…”

POLICY Of TRUTHIs One Of The Most Classic Of All Classics From DEPECHE MODE‘s 1990 AlbumVIOLATOR!!!

“…You’ll See Your Problems Multiplied

If You Continually Decide

To Faithfully Pursue

The

POLICY Of TRUTH…”

***<{*}>***

<*>

So, What Is This?!

Is This How It’s Supposed To Be?!

Me…

…Here…

…Awake…

…As My World Sleeps…

…Constantly Reminding Me Of My Issues?!

I Sincerely Hope Not.

But That IS Sincerely How It FEELS.

I Hate Not Being Able To Sleep.

It’s Rather Maddening, Actually.

Lucky For Me, I Have My Music.

More Specifically…

…Lucky For Me, I Have My…

VIOLATOR

Period.

When You Can’t Sleep…

…The Pulsing Rhythms And Lyrical Brilliance Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…Can Honestly Easy The Pain And Suffering Of Yet Another Lost Night Of Quality Rest.

I Know I’ve Listened To This Album More Than Any Other.

More Than Any Other BY FAR.

And I Still Love It.

I Love Every Track.

All NINE (9) Of Them.

I Really Don’t Know What I’d Do Without It.

There Are Times When I Just Wanna Hear it.

And Then…

…There Are Times When I Simply MUST Hear It.

“Infectious” Is Such An Understated Term, Here.

This Morning…

…Or Tonight, Depending On Where You Are And Your Current State Of Consciousness…

…It Was One Of Those MUST Moments.

And Even More Specifically Than That…

…It Was A Morning/Night For…

POLICY Of TRUTH

πŸ˜€

This Is Just A Wondrous-Crackerjack Of A Jam, My Peeps.

A Wondrous-Crackerjack, Indeed.

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

It’s Honestly Hard To Pinpoint And Peg-Down A Favorite Jam From This Album.

They’re ALL Favorites.

POLICY Of TRUTH

…Is No Different.

I Love It.

It’s A Favorite, Fo SHO, Kiddies.

When You Can’t Sleep…

…Reach For Those Amazing Jams.

And THEN…

…If You’re So Inclined…

…Write About Them.

It May Not Help You Sleep…

…But It May Help You In General.

It Works For Me.

It Makes Me Feel Better.

It Makes Me Smile.

It Distracts Me From My Sleepiness.

It Distracts Me From My Pain And Agony.

It Reminds Me That There Are Other Things Out There In The World Besides What’s Going On In My Head AND My Heart.

Wondrous-Crackerjack Jams Are Not Only To Be Loved…

…They’re Also To Be Respected.

And I Respect Mine.

DO YOU?!

Amazing Songs You’ve Never Heard Nor Heard Of: “DANGEROUS” by DEPECHE MODE (1989)

… … …

The Things You Do

Aren’t Good For My Health

The Moves You Make

You Make For Yourself

The Means You Use

Aren’t Meant To Confuse

Although They Do

They’re The Ones That I Would Choose

And I Wouldn’t Want It Any Other Way

You Wouldn’t Let Me Anyway…”

DANGEROUSIs The B-Side Track On ThePERSONAL JESUS Single Album From 1989 By DEPECHE MODE !!!

“…DANGEROUS

The Way You Leave Me Wanting More

DANGEROUS

That’s What I Want You For

DANGEROUS

When I Am In Your Arms

DANGEROUS

Know I will Come To Harm. …”

… … …

Alright…

…Odd As This May Sound To Y’all, My Peeps…

DANGEROUS

by DEPECHE MODE

…Is New To Me.

I’ve Been Listening To The Band Since The Late-1980s…

…And Yet Had Never Heard This Song Until Very Recently.

A Dear Friend Of Mine Brought It To My Attention…

…And I’ve Been Sorta Hooked On It Since.

The Funny Part…

…To ME…

…Is That It’s Been Out Since 1989…

…And Yet I Hadn’t The Foggiest As To Its Existence!

How Can A Man Pride Himself On Knowing All-Things In Regard To The Music Of His Favorite Band…

…Yet Hadn’t Heard One Of Their Very Best Songs?!

EXACTLY, My Peeps, EXACTLY!

Talk About A Pleasant Surprise!

DEPECHE MODE

…Only Comes Out With A New Album Every FOUR (4) Years…

…So, For Me To Have A Brand New Song To Listen To, At This Point In The Waiting Period, Is WONDERFUL!

DANGEROUS

…Is A HIGHLY-ADDICTIVE Little Number, That’s Fo SHO!

It’s Smooth.

It’s Cool.

It Has A Fantastic Rhythm…

…Pace…

…Beat…

…And The Lyrics Are Totally Awesome!

How Could I NOT Be Excited About This?!

EXACTLY AGAIN, My Peeps, EXACTLY AGAIN!

Y’all Know Me…

…I Love To Be Introduced To New And Exciting Things.

I Just Never Thought One Of Those New And Exciting Things Would Be A Song From My Favorite Band That, Until Recently, Never Existed In My World!

It’s Been Around For Over 20-Years…

…Yet I Never Knew It!

That’s Just Super-Duper-COOL!!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

Sooo…

…Am I Recommending This One To Y’all?!

YOU BETCHA!!

Why??

Because I Feel It’s A Song Worth Checking Out, My Peeps, Of Course!!

I’ve Already Given The Song The Ole “Walking” Test…

…And It Proved To Be SHEER PERFECTION!!

It Makes Any Walk Just That Much Better Than It Already Was.

Period.

If You Ever Get The Chance, My Peeps…

…I’d Totally Suggest You Give This One A Go.

Songs Of This Caliber Don’t Come Around Very Often…

…At Least, Not In My World.

It Takes A Lot For A Song To End-Up Being Part Of My Morning Routine…

…BUT…

…This Song…

DANGEROUS

…Totally Slots In PERFECTLY!!

So…

…If You’re Itching For Something New…

…Check This One Out…

…Ya Know…

…Even Though It’s Already Old.

πŸ˜‰

That’s Right Nifty, Ain’t It!?

YOU BETCHA, IT IS!!
