“…There’ll Be Times… When My Crimes… Will Seem Almost Unforgivable…” –DEPECHE MODE (“Strangelove” (1987))

…I Give In…

…To Sin…

…Because You Have To Make This Life…

…Livable…

…But When You Think I’ve Had Enough…

…From Your Sea Of Love…

…I’ll Take More Than Another…

…River-Full…

…Yes, And I’ll Make It All Worthwhile…

…I’ll Make Your Heart Smile. …

STRANGELOVE

…Strange Highs And Strange Lows…

STRANGELOVE

…That’s How My Love Goes…

STRANGELOVE

…Will You Give It To Me…

…Will You Take The Pain…

…I Will Give To You…

…Again And Again…

…And Will You Return It. …

So, My Peeps…

…How Many Of You Can Say…

“Wow, Did They Write This Song About ME?!?”

The Funny Part…

…To ME…

…Is It’s Likely A LOT Of Y’ALL!!!

While I Told You…

BEHIND THE WHEEL

…Is My Favorite Number Off The Album…

MUSIC FOR THE MASSES

…I’m Forced To Say…

STRANGELOVE

…Is The Most PERSONAL Number Off Said Album.

Ask Anyone I’ve Had…

…Or Have Almost Had…

…A Functioning Relationship With Of Some Kind…

…And They’ll Be Likely To Say…

“This Song Is Very Much About BRADLEY .”

And I Would Be Very Much Unable To Deny That.

Relationships With Me Generally Constitute Plenty In The PAIN Department.

Not So Much Physical Pain.

Just Mental AND Emotional Pain.

I’m…

…Honestly AND Sincerely…

…Terrible With Other People.

Especially With Those Whom I Love.

I HATE HATE HATE Making Waves…

…But That’s Something I’m HORRIDLY WONDERFUL At Doing.

I Kinda Force Myself Into It.

Over And Over And Over Again.

I Create Such Ripples Of Heartache…

…That When Something Good Does Happen…

…It’s Like Christmas Morning To The Other Person.

Like The Song Says…

Strange Highs And Strange Lows

…And…

…I Can Very Much Agree With The Part About…

“That’s How My Love Goes”

.Period.

And NO, My Peeps…

…I Don’t Mean To Say This Song Is About ONLY ME ME.

Far From It, Actually.

I Think It’s About A LOT Of US.

No Relationship Is Ever Easy.

If They Were…

…Everybody Would Have Them.

But Not Everybody Does.

You Don’t.

You Do.

You Do.

You Seriously Don’t.

You, In The Back…

…Yeah You…

…You Don’t Either.

πŸ˜‰

Anyway, Kiddies…

…I’m Gonna Stop This One Here.

Well…

…Almost Here.

Maybe Here?!?

THE POINT…

…Sorry Sorry…

…The Point Is This Song…

STRANGELOVE

By

DEPECHE MODE

…Seriously Speaks To ME ME…

…And Does Make ME ME Smile.

It Does So…

…Because It Reminds ME ME Of How Big A Shit I Am To A Lot Of People.

But…

…Even With Constant Reminding…

…It Hasn’t Phased Me A Bit.

I Remain ME ME.

I Could Either CRINGE And Shy Away From It…

…Or I Can Just SMILE And Carry-On.

I Choose The Latter.
