Challenge: a song from your favorite band
I have two favorite bands: Train and Depeche Mode. DM because most of their songs can relate to life. Dave Gahan’s voice can cut you only so deep when he’s expressing regret, hurt, anger, repentance, and happiness. Train because Pat Monahan’s voice radiates happiness and he can bum a smile from me anytime. I also love the fact that he doesn’t spew ‘F’ bombs to get his music sell.
Depeche Mode: Top 3
1. The Sinner In Me
Songs are open for interpretation and this song drives home what I’ve been feeling in my regretful teenage to early adult years. What if you could be free from the sinner inside you? Then you’ll be free to live a beautiful life unshackled by the burdens that usually comes with a sinful one. Well, that’s how I feel about this song. It describes the war within us.
If I could just hide
The sinner inside
And keep him denied
How sweet life would be
If I could be free
From the sinner in me
2. Enjoy the Silence
We don’t always need words to express the way we feel. The silence is more than enough.
3. People Are People
We shouldn’t judge another base on his/her color or background.
Trian: Top 3
Ever since I met Virginia, I knew I was in for the long haul with this soulful band.
1. Drops of Jupiter
Pat always get me at ‘and did you miss me while you were looking for yourself?’ This song is not a happy song. It was inspired by his late mother who died after a struggle with cancer. She had come to him in a dream a year after she passed and ‘she was swimming through the planets and came to me with drops of Jupiter in her hair.’
2. If It’s Love
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
‘I’m not in it to win it… I’m in it for you’
3. When I Look to the Sky
Thank you for this song, boys! It reminds me of how short life is and why we must hold onto the ones we love.
