-Poorman. 2017. From the Spirit album.
Great Martin lyrics here. The sound is wittier than it seems at first sight.

-Eternal. 2017. From the Spirit album.
The 1930's/1940's feel, the geiger counter, the... here I didn't fall from the chair, here I cried. GENIUS!!!

So here ends the series of posts, from post #6 to post #31 just above this one.

Hope you have enjoyed them.

There are other Depeche Mode songs, of course.
And other great artists.

Aaand, as an easter egg....

-Enjoy The Silence (harmonium version). 1990. B-side of Enjoy The Silence.
This is how Martin Gore originally composed the song. Could have fit in Pornography or Faith. It is a much darker song than people think.
But Alan Wilder had a different opinion about it. Still, Martin managed to get HIS version recorded and released.
I'm still undecided.

-I Feel You (demo). 2009. From the Sounds Of The Universe boxset.
Sung by Martin. It really, really feels like T-Rex.


piggymirror

-Surrender. 2009. I think this is an Easter Egg for the Exciter Tour video.
And it is the exact answer to the question "mum, what is glam rock?".
If this isn't glam, what else can be? Not even Ziggy...

Their best album, and simply one of the five best albums of all time, and you pick the other four.
Yes, it is that good, every single song on it could/would/should have been a hit.
Only albums like Revolver, Ziggy Stardust, The Velvet Underground & Nico... and only a fistful more can compare.


It's a good album with somewhat dated late 80s sound.

The same can be said of Ziggy Stardust.

Yeah.

Whatever.

Oh Wow! Thank you piggymirror. I'm reading a book on Depeche Mode at the moment, So I'm finding out about how the group works... I have listened to Black Celebration, Speak and Spell, Violator, and I have just ordered some other albums on CD too. I also have heard the Coceteau Twins singles complitation album, (since I posted this question) and they're all really good! It's great to hear songs and hear bits of the Cure in them because The Cure are such a different band. Thank you! I'll give them all listen, and let you know what I think. (I was in London the past while, so I didn't get to have a listen just yet)

I mean anything can be said, as witnessed by some of your assertions in this thread, but the tasteful electric/acoustic rock of Ziggy Stardust doesn't scream 70s the way Deep Purple's sound does, or the way the beat of Enjoy the Silence screams late 80s.

Anyway, since this thread is supposed to be about Depeche Mode and the Cocteau Twins, here are two beautiful songs by them.


Another great Martin Gore vocal:

Cocteau Twins, not "Coceteau" Twins.

I spelt it wrong the first time, and now my device likes to auto correct it to 'Coceteau' instead of 'Cocteau', Samsung tablets, am I right? There was a while there where it was correcting 'Robert' to 'Rubber'...
