Their Global Spirit tour, continuing into , has set world box office records. Leo is a welcome and recent addition into the Strangelove family. At the end of the song, you can hear some Morse code.
Note: There are 3 different durations for "Pimpf":. Shot on Super 8 and monochrome , the video sees the band in various Paris locations, hotel rooms and in a studio posing in front of a rolling backdrop. The live action is combined with short stop-frame animation sequences. The video also stars two models in underwear one of whom was Anton Corbijn's partner , as well as passing pedestrians, featured in the closing 'out-takes' sequence of fast-edit shots.
In the USA, MTV objected to some of the more revealing footage of the models and the video was edited to replace them with images of the band. There was also a Corbijn-directed video for "Pimpf", exclusive to the Strange video, which features Dave Gahan , Andy Fletcher and Alan Wilder shouting at each other and syncing with the synthetic chanting, while Martin Gore plays the song on a piano.
While Gore plays the piano in the video, it is Wilder who plays the piano on all piano-instrumentals by the band from — as well as " Somebody ". In , another video for "Strangelove" was released for the album version. It was directed by Martyn Atkins, who did photography for earlier DM albums. This video is much simpler than the original, and features the band performing inside a city-scape location Senate House , the federal headquarters of the University of London. Each note of its twinkling melody comes in through haunting darkness like lights that flicker.
It's somewhat eery, but it's somehow eve more tranquil. It's the kind of song that immediately drags you into its own mood. From 's Some Great Reward, this ode to sexy whips and chains is fun for the whole family. Plus, you've got to love a tune that includes wood block, tiger growls, and whip-crack effects.
Those whip-cracks actually got the song banned from many radio stations in the US, but it still broke the Hot Take that, puritans. Move over, Dave Gahan. Martin Gore has something so personal to say, he's taking the mic for himself. It's also really, really fun to sing along to. Go ahead, throw your hands in the air, do an interpretive dance, twirl about, and let this one soar to the moon. Here, Gore writes of judging our fellow men not for the way they appear or even their actions, but for the trials they've overcome and the beauty that lives within.
Even seemingly evil creatures may hide a history fraught with damnation, sacrifice, and joys heartlessly stolen. This song is also just damn good, dark and brooding with the kind of spiritual overtones that makes any song sound regal.
Ain't no time to pussy-foot around with meaning. Depeche Mode are sick of the angry right, and they want you to do something about it. This ethereal dance song is a straight up rallying cry for action. The thought-provoking video was directed by long-time collaborator Anton Corbijn, and features stockinged men in Nazi-like uniforms waving flags before the band's mirthless mugs.
Hey, there's still time to get on board, folks. Revolution, anybody? From 's Delta Machine, this Depeche Mode song stops me in my tracks. Gore and Martin's harmonies are heart wrenching, and that trudging guitar is the perfect, soulful, electric moan. This song plays humanity's futility like a sad angel plays the harp. The mix on the UK 7 inch is the standard "Single Version". Also, the first edition cardboard sleeve CD singles had red ink on the discs.
