Radio 65, side A, track 6: “Policy Of Truth” by Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode - Policy Of TruthOh, Depeche Mode, how I love you so.  Probably won’t be dating you, though.  Just saying.  Listening to this song, this AMAZING song, reminds me that I have to listen to “Violator” all the way through one of these days, and also that maybe you and I need to have a conversation about infidelity.  Because I THINK what you’re saying in this song is “Look, clearly you’re going to cheat.  It is what it is.  But I don’t want to know about it.”  And clearly whoever you’re singing this to is a repeat offender.  Or maybe you’re singing it to yourself.  I don’t know.  All I do know is that “policy of truth” is sang derisively, i.e. a policy of truth may not be the best strategy in a relationship.  I don’t know about all that, Depeche Mode.  This ain’t that kind of blog.  I do know that if you would have explained that to me when I recorded this off the radio, I would have been extremely confused and maybe even a little horrified.  Grown-ups stuff is hard.  But that’s all beside the point.  Wherever this song falls on my ethic-meter, the important thing is that it’s a kick-ass song, just like every other one of your songs.  And dat’s da truth!
