First-Off…

…I’m Am HUGELY IN LOVE With…

DIRTY STICKY FLOORS

by DAVE GAHAN

(aka "The Front-Man For DEPECHE MODE")

…And I Have No Issues With Showing It!!!

It’s A Phenomenal Little Number…

…And A Helluva Solo Debut Song!!!

It’s Exceptionally Memorable To Me For A Lot Of Reasons…

…Some Of Which I Can’t Touch-Upon Simply Because I Don’t Know How I’d Put It Into Words.

When This Album Debuted In 2003…

…Sheesh…

…What Can I Say?!?

2003 Was A Wildly Wild Wild WILD Year In My World.

And That’s Putting It Mildly Mild Mild MILD.

No Foolies, My Peeps.

2003 Saw An Ending To A Great Many Things For Me.

It Also Bore Some Of The Greatest Experiences Of My Meager Existence.

It’s Just So Personal.

I’m Struggling To Be Ambiguous…

…And Whishy-Washy…

…And Fog’ishly Foggy.

Relationship Bridges Burned.

Professional Bridges Burned.

I Blew Up The Friggin’ Engine In My Car.

But Only AFTER I’d Driven To Florida And Back With My Best Friend.

In Fact…

…He Was With Me When I Blew-Up The Engine A Few Weeks Later.

BUT…

…Getting To My Point…

…2003 Was The Year Of The Parties.

I Awoke Upon A Few Floors That Year.

But That Was Usually Because The Bed And Couch Was Already Occupied By Someone Worse-Off Than Myself.

So I Personally Justified Sleeping On The Floor…

…At Least…

…To Myself.

Before I Was A Hermit…

…I Was…

…Hmm…

…Very Much NOT A Hermit?

We’ll Go With “Very Much NOT A Hermit” In This Situation.

In Fact…

…I Was Your Classic…

…”Couch Cruiser”…

…Fo SHO.

But…

…Occasionally…

…The Floor Was Where I Found Myself In The Morning.

Though, I Only Recall One That Was Sticky.

The Rest Were All…

…Hmm…

…Linty?!

Goin’ With “Linty” Here.

πŸ˜‰

Well Not Everyone Had A Floor Upon Which There Was Potential For “Stickiness” And Such.

Most People Still Had Carpet Everywhere.

Some Even In The Head!

(Read "The Head" As "The Bathroom" In This Instance.)

Sheesh.

I’m Just Glad To Know I Wasn’t The Only One Going Through Some Of What I Was Going Through.

It Sure Didn’t Feel That Way Then…

…BUT…

…In Retrospect…

…I Think There Were Plenty Of Other Peeps Going Through The Bulk Of It All With Me.

Those People Are All Gone Now.

Save My Best Friend.

And He Just Doesn’t Live ’round Here, Anymore.

Probably A Smart Move On His Part, Fo SHO.

😐

DIRTY STICKY FLOORS

…Is An Homage To A Party-Past.

I Know Dear Ole…

DAVE GAHAN

…Is A Former Party PROFESSIONAL, And HOW!

So I’m Very Proud Of Him For Writing This One.

It Offers-Up A Glimpse Into Something Most People Would Just Rather Forget.

It Makes Me Smile For That Very Reason.

And For A Few Others, Fo SHO.

But That’s A Whole Other Bloggin’ing I’ll Have To Work-On At Some Point.

For Now…

…I’ll Just Leave You With Your Thoughts…

…And…

DIRTY STICKY FLOORS

!!! !!!! !!!

“To The Soul’s Desires, The Body Listens. What The Flesh Requires, Keeps The Heart Imprisoned. What The Spirit Seeks, The Mind Will Follow. When The Body Speaks, All Else Is Hollow. …” — DEPECHE MODE (“When The Body Speaks”)

WHEN THE BODY SPEAKS” Is My FAVE Of FAVES From DEPECHE MODE‘s 2001 Album “EXCITER

… … …

While MANY Folks I Know Truly DID Hate The “EXCITER” Album, I Sure As Hell DIDN’T. It’s Honestly One Of MY FAVE FAVES. Some AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL SONGS Came From “EXCITER” With Special Emphasis On “WHEN THE BODY SPEAKS” Which, To Me, Is One Of The Bands MOST MOST BEAUTIFUL TUNES EVER. Period.

… … …

I Actually Own The Double-Disc-DVD “ONE NIGHT IN PARIS“: The “EXCITER” TOUR (2001) Concert . IT. IS. WILDLY. A.MA.ZING. Fo. SHO. FO. SHO!

… … …

You Should Trust Me, My Peeps. The ONLY REASON This Particular Album Got It’s Bunk-Rep Was Because IT WAS (as they say) AHEAD OF IT’S TIME. A Truly BEAUTIFUL Album. And YES, The Song “THE DEAD OF NIGHT” IS Necessary For The Album. It’s Great Adding A Touch Of “EXCITER“‘ing Balance. “DREAM ON” Is A TRUE Gem. “THE SWEETEST CONDITION” Is WONDERFUL. “COMATOSE” Is Quirky-Odd’ish-Fun’ish hehe

… … …

I FEEL LOVED” Is More What You’d Expect To Call More Classic’ish DEPECHE MODE. “GOOD NIGHT LOVERS” Is The PERFECT ENDING. HANDS DOWN. …And… FO SHO. Please, My Peeps. Don’t Hate It Until You FINALLY DECIDE To HONESTLY Give It Another Chance. Clean Slate. Try Again. DEPECHE MODE Dug Deeeep To Make Something Truly EMOTIONALLY CONNECTING. I’ve Owned It Since 2001. Couldn’t Imagine My Music-Library Without It. Period. πŸ˜€
