Thirty years ago today, my favourite band, Depeche Mode, released one of my favourite albums: Music for the Masses.
This album contains some Depeche Mode classics like Strangelove, Behind the Wheel, and Nothing.
The American tour also featured the documentary movie 101, which is often known as The First True Reality Show.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I went through a summer of my life where I watched that documentary every single night. It’s weird to admit, but they all felt like friends to me!
My ultimate favourite song from this album, and all-time favourite Depeche Mode song, is definitely Never Let Me Down.
The chords from the start. The wheat field visuals. The lyrics.
This is why I love this band so much.
