My Music Mondays: Depeche Mode

Every summer I packed my bags and moved out to grandma Birgit and grandpa Harry's summer place where I lived the whole summer.
I had my very own set of summer friends and I was always happy to see them.
This might seem so far away from who I am today, but as a kid and pre-teens, I loved to be out in the nature by my self or go fishing fresh bass for breakfast at 04.00 AM with grandpa.
One day I was hanging out with my funny friend "Ulle", it was the summer break between 6'th Degree and 7'th Degree, I was 11, and as we sat in her room taking about far out stuff she put a cassette on.
Immediately I lost track of everything and felt like I was having an outer body experience and I amost got light headed.

"-What's this? WHAT'S THIS, ULLE!!!
-It's some tape I got from a guy I'm in love with.
- But, what is this pure and strange sound?
-They are called Depeche Mode.
Depeche Mode, I mumbled to myself."
That second my life changed forever.
I've found home.

I went back and got a cassette and we sat down in her bed as she copied the two sides with the records: Some Great Reward and Construction Time Again from my new House Gods; Depeche Mode.
I listened to my cassette every day. By this time I knew nothing about the subculture followed with this clean sound, I just tripped and fall by the music.

Still to this day nothing makes me feel better then really good electro music (love excluded).
I have Ulle to thank for finding this life. Thank's, Ulle!
Depeche Mode had such a great impact of my life so it will be next My Music Mondays as well


  1. I must agree with the outer body experience feeling, that is exactly what I feel when I hear good Depeche mode songs I haven't heard before. I always say I use drugs and by that I mean Depeche Mode

  2. Ahh. That was so lovely! It realy touched me Adora!
    And I must say when I feel a lil'down Depeche mode always makes me feel good!

  3. aww i can't watch them says something about not being viewable in my country.

  4. Haha! The first girl I ever had a crush on was a "new wave" girl who was friends with my cousin. She was 8 years older than me though. Just couldn't work it out. ANYWAY... yeah, she used to bring her records (actual records - this was a long time ago) and we'd sit around my cousin's basement and listen to them.

    That's what Depeche Mode makes me think of. Good times...

  5. cool cool sound...i like to hear them all time... DM had although changed my mind in the time when i am in bad love, turned to happy... i get a tape from my older brother an we danced to the music so badly...

  6. gosh, I can totally understand your feelings about depeche mode! I love them since I was about 13. I'ts a shame that almost no one of my age (I'm 18 nom) knows them today!!
