Depeche Mode: Best of, Volume 1 - Here is a web banner for the recent Depeche Mode release:  Best of, Vol. 1.  It went on sale in November 2006.
I love Depeche Mode! I saw them in concert during their Exciter tour - AND I HAD FRONT ROW SEATS!! I can't tell how what a great time I had!:D As for a favourite song, try as I might, I couldn't pick just one.:( There are too many I enjoy. But seeing as we are all posting lyrics here, I add this to the thread: ---------- Behind the Wheel My little girl Drive anywhere Do what you want I don't care Tonight I'm in the hands of fate I hand myself Over on a plate Now Oh little girl There are times when I feel I'd rather not be The one behind the wheel Come Pull my strings Watch me move I do anything Please Sweet little girl I prefer You behind the wheel And me the passenger Drive I'm yours to keep Do what you want I'm going cheap Tonight You're behind the wheel tonight -------- Yay! I love hearing that song. :) As for Depeche Mode's most recent album, "Playing the Angel," I do like it. Just like their past several releases, it took a little while to grow on me, but there were a few songs that I loved right off the bat, like "Suffer Well" and "Precious" (both of which were released as singles). And did you know DM got a Grammy nomination for "Suffer Well" in the "Best Dance Recording" category? Great news! Thanks for starting a Depeche Mode thread! They are one of my all-time favourite bands. :) ~Wyrdsister

I was very young when they were in their prime. Probably 10 or so. We didn't have music like that in my native country (Pretty much only our own music) until the early 90s as we were communist until 1989.

I too was 10 when they were in there prime... and I wanted to go to a concert so badly. "Shake the Disease" is one of my top favorites as well. "I'm not going down on my knees begging you to adore me"

Yes I like them very much, unfortunately I haven't seen them in concert. I like their song 'Strange Love' and 'Enjoy the Silence'. Their new album is fine but not as good as the old ones. I was 17 when I listened 1st to them and I was fascinated.

haven't seen them in concert, love their newest album, love all their work lol I got hooked on them in 1984 when Some Great Reward came out. Fav song is "It doesn't matter" I am happy That I have you Even though you're not here now I know somewhere You are dreaming Though it's definitely not of me It doesn't matter If this all shatters Nothing lasts forever But I'm praying That we're staying Together I am warmed by Your friendship Even when you're far away And I'm happy In the knowledge We may never see the day When I kiss you And you kiss me Don't pretend you miss me The worst kind Of diseased mind Is one filled with jealousy If we should meet again Don't try to solve the puzzle Just lay down next to me And please don't move a muscle I will thank you Most of all for The respect you have for me I'm embarrassed It overwhelms me Because I don't deserve any It doesn't matter If this all shatters Nothing lasts forever But I'm praying That we're staying Together

I like that one too - it's a good song. "Words like violence Break the silence Come crashing in Into my little world Painful to me Pierce right through me Cant you understand Oh my little girl All I ever wanted All I ever needed Is here in my arms Words are very unnecessary They can only do harm"

Depeche Mode - Depeche Mode
I love Depeche Mode. *looks over at her DM poster* Unfortunately, I don't have their newest album yet.:( I'm poor and nobody will buy it for me! As for favorite song... Oh, that's a tough one, but I think I'm going to have to go with Somebody. It's definitely up there at the very top.

Depeche Mode - Alternative Band
Yes, I like Depeche Mode's Somebody.It has been revived by few of the artists here in our country.I was just still a kid when they were very popular.I was mainly influenced by my cousin. ________________________SOMEBODY I want somebody to share Share the rest of my life Share my innermost thoughts Know my intimate details Someone who'll stand by my side And give me support And in return She'll get my support She will listen to me When I want to speak About the world we live in And life in general Though my views may be wrong They may even be perverted She'll hear me out And won't easily be converted To my way of thinking In fact she'll often disagree But at the end of it all She will understand me Aaaahhhhh.... I want somebody who cares For me passionately With every thought and With every breath Someone who'll help me see things In a different light All the things I detest I will almost like I don't want to be tied To anyone's strings I'm carefully trying to steer clear of Those things But when I'm asleep I want somebody Who will put their arms around me And kiss me tenderly Though things like this Make me sick In a case like this I'll get away with it Aaaahhhhh.... It fairly relates to my life now.

I love ENJOY THE SILENCE..but only because Tori covered it Words like violence Break the silence Come crashing in Into my little world Painful to me Pierce right through me Can't you understand Oh my little girl All I ever wanted All I ever needed Is here in my arms Words are very unnecessary They can only do harm Vows are spoken To be broken Feelings are intense Words are trivial Pleasures remain So does the pain Words are meaningless And forgettable All I ever wanted All I ever needed Is here in my arms Words are very unnecessary They can only do harm Enjoy the silence

I was born 1979 so I was quite young when they were famous. In any case a classic band which survived all the years. Love their songs such as Somebody and People are people. Influenced by my old sistr I used to listen to their songs all day. The weirdest fashion in any era..the eighties! Nu Wavers right?! But the songs are definitely addicting!

I love Depeche Mode. Definitely in my top 3 favorite bands. I saw them last year and they were absolutely amazing. Even if I was faaaaarrr away. I was born in 1982 so I was pretty young when they were in their prime. But, my brothers listened to them. So, I was exposed to them early. My favorite song *right now* is "Tora Tora Tora". I've been listening to Speak and Spell all day!
