music linkup week 20! "Precious"

Hello again blogland......another week of good intentions gone by. I seriously thought that I would be blogging every day this week, as I have had SO MUCH on my mind.  Unfortunately I can't sort it out enough to write it down. Maybe I'll eventually just give up and post some of the nonsensical rambling I'm hearing in my head.

Anyway, you all know I NEVER miss the lovely Amber's music linkup, and this crazy week is no exception.

It's been too long since I've posted a song from Depeche Mode, my all-time favorite band. This one is from "Playing The Angel" which came out in 2005, when hubby was deployed for the first time.  I got to go to the concert in San Diego, the first stop in the US, along with my sister, my brother, and my brother's wife.

BEST. SHOW. EVER.  





Then, when hubby came home the following April, his unit had a dinner in Vegas, and Depeche Mode was performing at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.  I scored tickets, & was so excited that hubby could come to the concert with me, but it was the
WORST. SHOW. EVER.

The "outdoor ampitheater" listed on our tickets was really just bleachers set up in the parking lot.  There were port-a-potties, and I made the mistake of trying to use one in the dark *shudder*.... Since the parking lot was the venue, the 5 story parking structure was blocked by all the limo/taxi traffic that would have been using that parking lot.....and we were stuck on the third level of the parking structure for more than five hours AFTER the concert ended.  On top of all this mess, Dave Gahan (lead singer) had laryngitis.  He sounded just awful.  The next day the band's publicist announced they were cancelling the next several stops on their tour.

Anyway, that's really why I chose this song - to remind me that something I love can disappoint me, and I can still love it anyway.  DM, you still rock!

Oh yeah, and the lyrics to this one really speak to my mood right now. (go back a post if you're lost).

Have you linked up yet?  If not, go on over to Goodnight Moon, and link up right now!

Love your reason for posting this, that it's a reminder that something you love can disappoint you but can love it anyway. I like that. I LOOOOVED DM in high school. Had no idea they came out with a new album in 2005. Can't believe they're still around. Anyhoo, thanks for sharing! :)
