There are songs that I didn't vote for that I look at on the results and I think 'yeah, I can definitely understand why it's in there, and I probably would have voted for it myself if I'd had the space'.

'Love, In Itself', 'Useless', 'Lie To Me', 'Get The Balance Right!' and 'But Not Tonight' = not worthy of a placing in a Top 40 Depeche tracks list, IMO.

One Caress should've been there I reckon

Ismael Klata, Sunday, 6 May 2012 18:28 (1 year ago) Permalink

Not only did I think "Enjoy" would sweep it, but "In Your Room" didn't even place? Maybe because it was a single (and one I love), I assumed it was a lock. Interesting results!

Yeah, One Caress barely missed my ballot.

Thanks for running the poll, crüt - didn't end up submitting a ballot as I only really know the early singles and MftM, but very happy "Shake The Disease" placed as high as it did.

Disappointed not to see my favourite SGW track, Something to Do: smalltown blues by way of boshing EBM. Also surprised by absence of Nothing, which would have been my #21 on a

Listening to Construction Time Again as I type this - fantastically inventive sounds and arrangements but boy those lyrics are even worse than I remembered. So odd, DM's political awareness - lasted for just one year. It didn't suit them.

"New Dress" is political, also somewhat gauche.
