The Cure is going to be here in Los Angeles in a month. I'm kicking myself that I didn't get tickets because I've been listening to one of their less well-known songs, "Charlotte Sometimes" quite a bit lately. The melodic, poetic atmosphere of this 1981 track sucks me in every time.

The song is based on the Penelope Farmer novel of the same title and is essentially about the process of deconstructing your identity in order to find out who you really are.

It's Depeche Mode Monday and the 1986 single, "A Question of Lust" has been stuck in my head for the past week. I was only 14 when this song was released and I never once heard it played on the radio. Instead, this is one of the Depeche Mode tunes that I discovered many many years after its release. Despite the title, it's not a song that's about sex. It's about relationships and the mistakes you make in them.

This is also the second song Depeche Mode released where the lead is sung by Martin Gore instead of lead singer, Dave Gahan. I always think Martin's voice sounds like an angel. Check it out for yourself:
