Depeche Mode - 'Death's Door'

Recollection Collection......musical memories recalled with affection!




Depeche Mode - 'Death's Door' (1991)

Here's another cheery one! This track is taken from the monumentally brilliant soundtrack to the monumentally rubbish Wim Wender's film, Until the End of the World. The album was filled with songs of a desolate nature and had a strange, tangible atmosphere throughout. No really, if you get the chance listen to it, it is that good. As a Depeche Mode fan this stood out, a morose but beautifully crafted song of regret and dispair kept together by a shuffling snare. Perhaps autobiographical, due to David Gahan's well documented battle with drink and drugs making the track more poignant.

It was the soundtrack to my summer. Just enough teen angst and meloncholy required to take the edge off an otherwise blissful summer. I will never poo poo Emo again.

The Crime and City Solution track is phenomenal, I don't think there's a bummer on that soundtrack. I remember it was on heavy rotation that summer!
