Depeche Mode haven't lost it.

And by "it" I mean the ability to make a song incredibly gloomy and romantic at the same time. Flies on the Windscreen is a good example. They literally say that they're "lambs for the slaughter" as a way of saying "we're all about to die, so lets get it on now, sweetie". So goth. And I mean "goth", not whatever passes for goth these days.

This is a great example:

We´re damaged people
Drawn together
By subtleties that we are not aware of
Disturbed souls
Playing out forever
These games that we once thought we would be scared of

When you´re in my arms
The world makes sense
There is no pretense
And you´re crying
When you´re by my side
There is no defense
I forget to sense
I´m dying

We´re damaged people
Praying for something
That doesn´t come from somewhere deep inside us
Depraved souls
Trusting in the one thing
The one thing that this life has not denied us

When I feel the warmth
Of your very soul
I forget I´m cold
And crying
When your lips touch mine
And I lose control
I forget I´m old
And dying

So - I'm old, falling to pieces, but being with you helps me forget that for a few minutes. Nice, Martin Gore. Thanks.

I'm a posting freak today because I'm talkative and Karl's at work. And I haven't posted regularly in a long time so there's all this random stuff bubbling out. So the few of you who still read this are getting flooded with all my random-ness.
