Disco Friday: Depeche Mode "I Feel Loved"
As the excitement at ModFab HQ grows to a fever pitch over next month's release of Sounds of the Universe, I've been revisiting the catalog of Depeche Mode on the iPod more often than I should admit. (261 tracks by the band on my DM playlist...remixes, outtakes, bootlegs, etc. Yes, we're Mode Whores. What of it?) We keep coming back, though, to the propulsive frenzy of "I Feel Loved," a very danceable track off 2001's underrated Exciter disc. Even more fun are You Tube's many homemade remixes of the song, which show the durability and elasticity of Martin Gore's songwriting.
