Depeche Mode – But Not Tonight (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th March 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“But Not Tonight” is a single released in the United States by synth-pop band Depeche Mode. In the UK the single was flipped and “Stripped” was the A-side released as the first single from Black celebration. The band’s U.S. label Sire Records, however, decided to use the B-side “But Not Tonight” on the soundtrack to the movie Modern Girls and included the song on US editions of Black Celebration. As a result, the single was flipped, and released as “But Not Tonight” in the United States to help promote the movie. The band was not happy with this decision, seeing “But Not Tonight” as a useless pop track recorded in less than a day. The single did not chart. Surprisingly, despite previous criticism of the song by the band, an acoustic version of “But Not Tonight” was sometimes performed by Martin Gore on Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine Tour and is included in the 2014 album “Live in Berlin.

The two B-Sides are “Breathing in Fumes” and “Black Day”. “Breathing in Fumes” was a new song using samples from “Stripped”, mixed by the band and Thomas Stiehler. “Black Day” is an acoustic, alternate version of “Black Celebration” sung by Martin Gore, and is co-written by him, Alan Wilder, and producer Daniel Miller – the only Depeche Mode song where Miller receives a writing credit.

The 7″ and 12″ versions on the US “But Not Tonight” single are different versions than used on the UK singles – they were remixed by Robert Margouleff.

Depeche Mode – Strangelove (Highjack Remix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 22nd July 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

“Strangelove” is Depeche Mode’s eighteenth UK single, released on 13 April 1987, and the first single for the then upcoming album Music for the Masses. It reached number 16 in the UK charts (Depeche Mode would fail to make the Top 10 of the UK singles chart throughout the second half of the 1980s), but hit number 2 in West Germany and in South Africa, and was a Top 10 success in several other countries (Sweden, Switzerland, etc.). In the US, “Strangelove” charted twice on the Billboard Hot 100 reaching #76 in 1987 and again in 1988 #50. “Strangelove”was the first of nine number-ones on the US Dance charts, where it stayed for three weeks at the top in 1987.

This special US only 12” features new remixes of “strangelove” by Bomb The Bass, Mark Saunders and Tim Simenon. This remix is also known as “Strangelove ’88”. Sire Records commissioned these new remixes because they were not satisfied with the original release in 1987.

Also included are Justin Strauss remixes of “Nothing”.

Depeche Mode – It’s Called A Heart (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th September 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“It’s Called A Heart” is a single by Depeche Mode released on September 16, 1985. It was included as one of two new songs on the compilation The Singles (81-85) the same year, along with “Shake the Disease”. It reached number 18 in the UK singles chart. In America the album was titled Catching Up With Depeche Mode.

Martin Gore and Alan Wilder have often been quoted as saying “It’s Called a Heart” is their least favourite single ever recorded by Depeche Mode, and is not particularly well-liked by many fans either. On the documentary included on the remastered edition of Black Celebration, it is revealed that the band wanted to release “Fly on the Windscreen” as a single, but the Mute Records publicist nixed that idea, as the song starts with the word “death”.

The “Emotion Remix” and “Emotion Dub” mixes of “It’s Called A Heart” were done by Joseph Watt, who is one of the remixers of the Razormaid remix service. These mixes, however, are not the actual Razormaid mix of the track. These remixes of are exclusive to this 12 inch single, and to the digital collection “The Complete Depeche Mode”, from iTunes. They have not appeared on any official CD release.

The “Deportation Mix” of “Flexible” is practically identical to the “Pre-Deportation Mix”, but for some unknown reason, it doesn’t fade out. The “Pre-Deportation Mix” has a fade ending, but this mix just goes until it stops cold. The effect is similar to a tape machine running out of tape – it just stops. This mix has never appeared on an official CD release.

Depeche Mode – Depeche (Megamix) Behind The Mix! (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd July 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

Released in 1989 this is one of the earlier ON-USound releases. There are two Depeche Mode Megamixes featured here. The mixes are mainly of Depeche Mode’s early work and tracks from “Music For The Masses”.

Depeche Mode are an English electronic music band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group’s original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals, occasional songwriter since 2005), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andy Fletcher (keyboards) and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter 1980–81). Vince Clarke left the band after the release of their 1981 debut album, Speak & Spell, and was replaced by Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, occasional songwriter) with Gore taking over songwriting. Wilder left the band in 1995; Gahan, Gore, and Fletcher have since continued as a trio.

Depeche Mode have had 48 songs in the UK Singles Chart and twelve top 10 albums in the UK charts, two of which debuted at #1. According to EMI, Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million albums and singles worldwide, making them the most successful electronic band in music history. Q magazine calls Depeche Mode “The most popular electronic band the world has ever known” and included the band in the list of the “50 Bands That Changed The World!”.

In 2010 Depeche Mode were ranked No. 98 on VH1’s list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

*Please Note: This is not an officially released single therefore the vinyl mastering may not be perfect. However I have made every attempt to restore this rare 12″.
