Another band for whom it’s impossible to pick just one song: how do you do it, when they’ve got so many stone cold classic tunes? This one always reminds me of LA, driving around late at night on the way to the beach to have a coke in some diner, because we were too young to drink there, and then that moment hits in the song and the whole world flattens, glides, rolls past the window.
I think it’s that moment that picked this song for me, but it could just as easily have been Never Let Me Down Again for walking around Berlin moodily, Eyman and I pissed off at each other because we’d never spent that long with another person before, both of us stomping about with our Walkmans on before he said “here, listen to this” and I did, and I got it. We probably even hugged.
But man, the songs. Bullet of a Gun. Personal Jesus. Walking in My Shoes. Strangelove. Enjoy The Silence. Even the new ones, like Wrong, are amazing. Hell, I reserve the right to return to DM another day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2VBmHOYpV8
