    Nitzer Ebb: Ascend One of my all time favourites: hard as it is, still preserves a nice melody De/Vision: Remember As far as I know, they've never played it live!

Eventhough Precious isn't my all-time favourite, it's my favourite from Playing the Angel, and thus it bring back all the memories from when I first met my girlfriend :)

  • wim van gestel

    Whoot! The guys are hosting Subterranean on MTV2 this week! There is a preview clip up on their blog.

    I would like the DJs to play Shake The Disease (Tiga remix). For me that song really was the highlight of their 80's Berlin period, and I think that particular remix really captures the mood of the original song without being "too" retro. A perfect remix of a perfect song. And to hear it on a dancefloor in Berlin would be... perfect.

    FOTW, Dangerous, Happiest Girl, Sea Of sin I hope I'll win...

  • Alex


    It's No Good That was the first DM song i heard far in 1997. From that moment a big DM love started. And entire Ultra sound was so magnificent and mystical. Great song, great album, great band!

  • Dirk


    In your room (live 93) - great live version Strangelove (Maxi Mix) - I love to dance to it! Useless (Single Version) - great song, single has more power than album version Thank you!

  • Zoltan Horvath


    all right...there must have been some misunderstanding. So the DM songs I would request: Freestate: a superb track and it would have deserved to get released as a single Perfect: one of my favourites from SOTU, yet they just seem to have missed it from the TOTU setlist

  • Sandra


    ok, I would like to request: Happiest Girl (unfortunately played rare) Only when I loose myself (I love the r&b feel)

  • rich


    heading out to Berlin for my first overseas Mode trip. Can't wait! Why's no one said Work Hard yet?! That'd have to be my choice - it was the b-side to my forst DM single. Second choice would be To Have And To Hold or Corrupt.

  • Nick


    Fragile Tension Best song on SOTU but not on the live Set List.

  • Ulla


    Lie To Me: because there s never many songs played with Martin on leadvocals and this is a great dance tune also. Worked fine in Hamburg at the no show party the other day! Corrupt: Too sexy a song to not be played! Everybody sang along in London, great atmosphere. FOTW: just because the anticipation to hear it live the next day will make people go crazy :)

  • Know-it-all


    Stripped (highland mix) - the intro always blows me away, amazing and hauntingly beautiful. Ghost - all of it blows me away, talk about amazing and hauntingly beautiful!! Get the balance right (combination mix) - always remain ultimately selfish...

  • Jose Eduardo Cruz Garcia


    In Your Memory: one of the songs written by Master Alan Wilder. There was a higher song for its age :D Ghost: because is my favourite song from this stage of Sounds of the Universe. Greets!

  • Christoffer Hultin


    FLEXIBLE Just because it's one of the worst ever, and still so damn fun, its a must to mix it with Boys Say Go.

  • Karsten


    Master and Servent (Slavery Whip Mix) First 12" I bought and big fan since. Very surprised to hear Master and Servent in Tel Aviv, I realy love the new sound

  • Vlad


    See you in two days there!
