Day 18: A song from the year that you were born

Meh! Michael Jackson does not have a song from the year that I was born so this question is invalid.

Human – The Human League

Broken Wings – Mr. Mister

West End Girls – Pet Shop Boys

When I Think of You – Janet Jackson

The Runners Up

Rock Me Amadeus – Falco

New Dress – Depeche Mode

Alive and Kicking by Simple Minds

Take My Breath Away – Berlin 💙

The Winner

The 80’s was my playground and what’s the 80’s without this underrated song ‘Here Is the House’ by Depeche Mode? Written by Martin Gore and sang by Dave Gahan, the song evokes a sense of longing. The narrator just wants to spend a night in with the person he loves. He wants to shut out the world and enjoy a moment, no interruptions. And then again, it conveys a sense of loss. The narrator lost everything and the house painfully reminds him of those memories he had with the person he loved. 

Either way, the song was amazing to my ear and the ticking clock at the beginning and end of the song was an effective touch.

And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home
And there’s someone
Calling on the telephone
Let’s stay home
It’s cold outside
And I have so much
To confide to you

With or without words
I’ll confide everything
