Here is the House

Here are two versions of Depeche Mode’s Here is the House. Both are very different than the album version. The demo version shows how simply they start the writing process. The lyrics are also different as in the demo he says “Colors and Shapes Merge Together” instead of “Body and Soul”. Both these versions let you hear the amazing guitar line after the the 1st verse. When the fans clap to the guitar in the live version it always brings me to tears. There are people like us.

“So we stay at home and I’m by your side and you know what’s going on inside. Inside my heart. Inside this house. And I just want to let it out for you.” – Martin L. Gore

    YES, that’s the feeling I can’t resist whenever I am listening to Depeche, especially live. It’s an overwhelming sense of community. I wonder why that is? I love your blog and I’d love to hear more about the very strong sense of community with Depeche fans…
