Is 'Saw Something' the most beautiful solo Dave Gahan song?

Postby I Rush For You » Thu Jul 09, 2009 12:02 pm

From both Solo albums i mean, just wow! :eek: I love both albums, every song, but Saw Something is really something else :rolleyes:;):p:D

The part where Dave sings "time and time again I want you back, you are my friend, we cant pretend" and then the melody and guitar riff that follows just hooks me everytime! :eek::cool:

Whats your favorite song overall from the 2 DG solo albums?

Miracles I would say is the most 'beautiful'. My favourite solo song by Dave as a whole though is probably Use You.

I don`t know Paper Monsters(sorry Dave):o Hourglass yes:D

From what i read that Hourglass is a better album as a whole, Id say is hard to say one. I`m divided between Saw Something and Kingdom.

I`m afraid you had to post this thread in related to Dave Gahan forum*down

I equally adore Use You and 21 Days from Hourglass, Kingdom is super too. But on the whole i think Saw Something is the most beautiful solo song by Dave.

Paper Monsters is a solid album too, She Said (Goodbye) is a favorite of mine.

Saw Something is a very introspective song by Dave. Is a great song, great videoclip. He really made a simple song but undeniable. I rather have a simple song well made than 2 or 3 complex and not well worked on.Ops!

I love Saw Something. Love the Frusciante guitar solo at the end, very cool.

My two favs off Hourglass are Deeper And Deeper (Rauschmiere Mix) and Endless (Bare). The former is just perfection, a wonderful, throbbing, dirty disco track while the latter is just so moving, the song just takes on a whole new meaning

Thread moved. Just a reminder, please post to the appropriate forum. This is clearly Hourglass-related... thanks.

Most of all I like Down and Black & Blue again. But I also like very strong and heavy songs like Use you, 21 days and Deeper and Deeper.
In every album I can find smth that is "mine"
They are fantastic!! And I can`t understand people who doesn`t like them at all.

Definitely the most beautiful song for me. I almost wept the first time I heard it!
