Band Name Origins:

  • Gore, Clarke, and Fletcher started DM as "Composition of Sound". When singer Dave Gahan was added, he suggested the name Depeche Mode, a name he stole from a French fashion magazine he saw in art school. The band didn't know what it meant at the time (loosely translated to "Hurried Fashion"), but thought it sounded modern and cool, for a while early on insisiting on being called Depeché Mode (pronounced Depeshay), though that pronunciation didn't catch on. Submitted by: Modeman
  • They saw it in a magazine and thought it sounded cool. When asked by an interviewer if they knew that it meant "Lastest Fashion" they claimed that they didn't Submitted by: Lily

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"New Life"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I stand still stepping on the shady streets
and I watch that man to a stranger
You think you only know me when you turn on the light
Now the room is lit with danger
Why They're Nonsensical:
...Say what ???!! Am I the only one having troubles with these lines (and the rest of this song) or am I missing something? How can one be standing still, yet be 'stepping'??? What 'man' is meant in the next line? How come 'the room is lit with danger '?? (I've checked several sites, and these seem to be the real lyrics, though...)
Submitted by: Henk
"Just Can't Get Enough"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Just like a rainbow, you know you set me free
Why They're Nonsensical:
We have 'album fillers' and now 'rhyme fillers'. What in the name of Hovis does this line mean? I didn't know rainbows were such renowned liberators, the way they just sit there in the sky and never end...
Submitted by: Devil Jones

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Blue dress"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Something so simple - something so trivial
Makes me a happy man - Can't you understand
Why They're Misrhymed:
No, I can't actually. Four 'simple' lines that just don't rhyme (again!) What can I say about Depeche Mode? If there was a Top Ten of Most Misrhymed Lyrics, they definitely would be in it! Nevertheless, they make great music, so who gives a ****?
Submitted by: FaultyDog
"Blue dress"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Put it on - and don't say a word
Put it on - the one that I prefer
Why They're Misrhymed:
I don't know about you, but to me 'word' and 'prefer' just don't rhyme. Still a great song, however.
Submitted by: FaultyDog
There are additional misrhymed lyrics available.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Master And Servant"
The Dirty Lyrics:
It's played between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Why They're Dirty:
...It took me WAY too long to realize how unsubtle this song is. X_X As for explanation for this submission, well, if it's needed, as is said later in the song, "Domination's the name of the game."
Submitted by: Aninnymouse
"World In My Eyes"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I'll take you to the highest mountain
To the depths of the deepest sea
Why They're Dirty:
It doesn't sound dirty when Dave Gahan sings it, but imagine if a woman were singing it... Highest mountain? Deepest sea? Exactly.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Blasphemous Rumours"
The Lyrics:
I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours
But I think that god has a sick sense of humour
And when I die I expect to find him laughing
The rest of the song sounds pretty depressing, but the music for this part of the song sounds rather upbeat and joyous. But the lyrics? Still depressing.
