A song DM fans can instantly name after a few seconds. From the massive selling album "Music for the Masses," "Strange Love" charted at only #76 on Billboard Hot 100 but #1 on the dance chart and a huge international hit. Another sort of dark romance song DM style. Dave Gahan sings of how "you make life livable" and "that I give in to sin" which probably has something to do with "your sea of love." "Strange love Strange highs and strange lows Strange love That's how my love goes Stange love Will you give it to me" There is a trans hypnotic quality to DM's music especially in their remixes and instrumentals which is why they were so popular on the dance rave scene. "Strange Love" possesses a moody feel.
