Thank Fletch it’s Friday.
All of us here at chateau Broadsheet was gutted to hear of the untimely death of founding Depeche Mode synth guru Andy Fletcher.
An enduring icon of the 1980s and a huge influence on the subsequent electro-pop genre, Fletcher’s contribution to music will never be forgotten.
So this week I want to know: what’s your favourite Depeche Mode song and why?
Please include video links if possible.
Lines close on Saturday at Midnight.
Last week, thanks to a suggestion by Andy Pipkin, I asked for your least favourite song. You answered in your tens. But there could only be one winner.
Unmutual won my boundless ‘lack of esteem’ with this horror:
Celine Dion • My Heart Will Go On
“Somewhere in the icy depths of the North Atlantic lies the wreck of the Titanic… and if I’m honest and had my way… it’s where this watery dose of sentimental Sonic-Cystitis would be placed for the rest of all time…”
Nick says: Congrats Unmutual and thanks to all who entered.
Last week: Win Nick’s Esteem
