Depeche Mode – “Damaged People” Live in Vilnius 2006

Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel

All right. It’s still technically Wednesday here in Stevens Point, WI, so I didn’t forget about my daily dosage of Depeche Mode.

Today… was a very “Damaged People” kind of day. Not sure why, considering I’ve been in very good spirits this week.  For some reason, this song hypnotizes me not only lyrically, but instrumentally as well. “Lilian” is still my favorite Playing the Angel track, but “Damaged People” easily catches me off guard from time to time.

What’s your favorite song from Playing the Angel, Devotees?

Here’s a live version from 2006 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Enjoy!

    For me it´s PRECIOUS the perfect song. Two days ago a test for the trade mark of cars from the new spot of Dave Gahan asked the question ” If you must listen to a song forever, which one would it be?”. I know it´s difficult to choose 1 song, from DM and so many other nice bands in the WOrld. But definitly, it´d be “Precious”: I love the voice of Dave in this song, the fact that the song was written by Martin when he got divorced of his wife, and thought about his songs as “Precious” beeings to take care. I´m a Devotee and a Mum too. So I can imagine how hard must be for the childrens to endure a divorce.
    Best regards from Spain 😉

      Very powerful words, Marisa. Lilian does it for me because of a past relationship. I think everyone has a Lilian that they can relate to.

      Precious is my second favorite because if something like that were to me, I could only wish I could write something 1/4 as compelling as the lyrics Martin composed for that song.

    I would be damaged too if I were an ULTRA Violator.
