Even though the synth-pop duo Erasure has it's ties to Depeche Mode (Vince Clarke was a founding member of Depeche Mode), I'm not exactly a huge fan of theirs. They're not dark enough, not edgy enough for me to really be a hardcore fan. But, one of the few Erasure songs I actually really like is 1991's "Love to Hate You".

I first heard this song back then because it was on an unfamiliar mixtape that was in my college dorm room. Turned out that the mixtape had been made for my boyfriend by the girl he was cheating on me with. He left it in my room and then could not explain where he got it from. Needless to say, I got rid of him but I kept the tape. In the weeks following that debacle, I'd listen to the song and yell the chorus as loud as I could, "I love to hate you!"

Juvenile, I know.

The song came back into my life a couple of weeks ago when I was going through a box of old belongings. Sure enough, that 17 year-old mixtape was in there. Gosh, bad memories, but this really is a great song!
