With Depeche Mode, we just can't get enough
But back to Depeche Mode... Your 80s troika recorded an exceptional tribute podcast for the band today. It should be online by Thursday -- just in time to download it from iTunes to listen to on the way to the Forum. To prepare for the show, I burned a little compilation CD earlier this week and after listening to the Mode for 24 straight hours, I've come to several conclusions.
- Blasphemous Rumors is actually a pretty uplifting song ... when listened to at 4 a.m. after drinking a liter of Diet Mountain Dew.
- "Some Great Reward" is the best album of the 80s, no matter what Sean says. (He's just cranky after his strange seal-morphing-into-dog dream).
- Gina needs 5 minutes to prepare for any podcast. I need 3 hours. And even after 3 hours, I can't remember the band member names. Yet, strangely I can name all three members of Rush tonight.
- No matter what I do, I can't stop singing the intro lyrics "It's a lot (it's a lot) ... it's a lot (it's a lot) ... it's a lot (it's a lot) like life" from Master and Servant. I did it on the elevator at work today on my way home, not even realizing it, and the other two people onboard moved far away from me.
