The sounds of silence

cheery, huh?Now, I like Depeche Mode as much as the next man - and the next man says he likes Depeche Mode quite a bit, thank you very much - but they are one of those groups that inspire a very particular kind of creepy fan.

You know who I mean - the sort of people who name their daughter after the keyboard Martin Gore used on Just Can't Get Enough, or who colour their teeth in black for Dave Gahan's birthday.

So, perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise to find that someone has collected thirty-seven (count-em!) cover versions of their single Enjoy The Silence.

Uber-blog My Old Kentucky Blog has made all of them available for download and, surprisingly, they're all pretty damn good. I particularly recommend Pat McDonald's Seattle-esque unplugged performance, and Jazzhole's tabla-enhanced easy listening version.
