Favorite Albums of All Time: Nostalgia Edition, Part I



I was a bit of a late bloomer regarding Depeche Mode. I remember being in the Virgin Megastore in Chicago (which no longer exists) around 1998 and hearing "Enjoy the Silence" come over the speakers.

I bought the 86>98 collection right there, and everything DM had ever put out in the following weeks.

I also remember driving over a bridge on the highway in IL, and while I was opening the CD case for the live album, 101, the liner notes flew out my window and over the edge. I freaked out quite a bit.

This song and its video are to this day two of my favorite things in existence:
