Jean-Paul DuQuette Although these covers are already showing their age a bit, CT knows how to show respect to Gore and Co. and his vocals are spot on. Favorite track: But Not Tonight.

Zen Frazier It's hard to cover even one song from a legendary band and dominant influence, let alone a whole album! But CT succeeds in this homage by bringing his own style to bear on some of DM's less "well known" tracks (if that makes sense). Leave in Silence is one of my favorite DM songs and so too is CT's version. Favorite track: Leave in Silence.

Mathias Karstädt this is clearly one of the best tribute albums to Depeche Mode I have ever listened to. Even the original track Ponytail Girl is great. Favorite track: Ponytail Girl.

Lee Adcock Makes me happy that a fair amount of these remixes are off Black Celebration. Favorite track: Leave in Silence.

At 2 p.m. she eats a late lunch by design So that she’ll have some self-control at dinnertime Not much at all gets done on Friday afternoon So who would mind if she should leave a little soon? The welcome breath of open air The daily driving regimen Talk radio to fill her head Until the exit’s missed again At 4 p.m. her second shower of the day She shuts her eyes and lets the workweek wash away Repaints her toes and fingernails Sprays on three dollars of perfume Brushes her teeth And tries on clothes Until they clutter up the room At 6 p.m. she shows up at her friend’s house late We have to eat before the concert starts at eight She says hello to our mutual friends Hugs me a little bit too tight They told me she came just for me And now I see that they were right It does nothing for me But make me sad That you did all this For nothing You had to know that I never saw you As a star in my life’s fairytale Did you think that you’d really change that at all By putting your hair in a ponytail?


Way back in 2001, my song “Ponytail Girl” spread like wildfire on Napster, mislabeled as a Depeche Mode song from their then-upcoming Exciter album.

The incident led to the creation of what many fans consider the best Depeche Mode tribute album (I’m blushing as I type this, but it’s true!), with a focus on unappreciated gems rather than hit singles.
