I'm not trying to tell you anything, you didn't know when you woke up today
Tower was having a big dvd sale, I put down the Erasure videos and backed away, but I went ahead and I bought Depeche Mode 101 for a mere $10. I haven't seen that thing since, um, it came out on VHS, (hi, i'm old) whenever that was. But does the dvd ever bring back memories.
I was at the concert for the masses in 1988, damn, that was 17 years ago. While the dvd is great quality and all, it still doesn't fully capture what it was really like to be there. It was...amazing. 80,000 people, all of whom know the words to Never Let Me Down Again, singing in unison, well that's just unforgetable, right there.
It was really nice to watch it again. The outfits and hairdos, most of which I had, yikes, insane. The music, good as ever.
Highlights for me:
1. Dave Gahan playing pinball and singing...Roxy Music!
2. Fletch's cute glasses.
3. The live version of "Stripped." LOVE THAT.
4. The interviews with the "kids." My how they've aged.
