Let’s stay with the 80s for another day.. just long enough to dance your FACE off to Depeche Mode. Try not to move when you hear this. 

And who didn’t know People are People in the 80s? (crank up your volume for this) “People Are People” is Depeche Mode‘s tenth UK single, released on 12 March 1984. It was their first hit single in the US and the first single from the Some Great Reward album.  ((drama alert!!))…

The Clive Richardson-directed “People Are People” video was released in two versions. The original video was made for the single version, but an alternate video was made with the “Different Mix”. The music video featured footage of various war scenes, mixed with footage of the band aboard the HMS Belfast. The “Different Mix” video appears on Some Great Videos.   Despite “People Are People”‘s success, Martin Gore considers it as one of his least favourite songs. He prefers his songs to have subtle metaphors to allow people to find their own meanings to his songs, and feels “People Are People” does not fit that description[citation needed]. It has not been played live since 1988.

What were you wearing when you were listening to this album or the much music video over and over? Or at your school dance!?
