DEPECHE MODE - Somebody KTV (DJ Z Instrumental Keyboard Tribute) #PocketConcertSeries


When Depeche Mode announced that they were planning to release "Blasphemous Rumours" as a 7" vinyl single, pushback from the religious community resulted, and consequently, the band decided as a compromise to release the single as a double-A side with "Somebody." "Blasphemous Rumours"/"Somebody" is Depeche Mode's 12th UK single (Mute 7 BONG 7) and 1st double A-side single, released on October 29, 1984. Both A-side songs were from the album Some Great Reward. "Somebody" is the first single with Martin Gore as lead vocals, one of only 3 (the other ones being "A Question of Lust" and "Home"). "Somebody," which was sung by Gore in the studio in the nude, includes one of his "little twists," where the track builds as if it is a song about finding one's perfect love, only to be revealed at the end that "though things like this make me sick / in a case like this I'll get away with it." The single charts number 16 in the UK. (from Wikipedia, etc.)
