These five songs prove that Depeche Mode’s talent and musical prowess outshine the box to which they’ve been put in by VH1 I Love the 80s – that of angsty, effeminate, teens whining about…whatever it is they want to whine about. Depeche Mode is actually a great chronicler of the growing up process. These five songs show that their music withstands the test of time because it evolves with it as their members mature. We can only hope that Depeche Mode will keep on keeping on, so we’ll have something good to listen to in our ripe old age.
