Lady Gaga wants to make a cover of Depeche Mode
Lady Gaga has said she wants to record a cover of Depeche Mode’s 1984 hit song “People are people” adding “I could really give it the melody it never had”. 24-year old Lady Gaga who wasn’t even born when the Depeche Mode track was released, has been inspired by the many mash-ups between Depeche Mode and some of her songs that are floating on the Internet.
So she says: “I spend literally hours on YouTube each day checking what people post about me, reading the comments and so on. And I was so surprised that many Depeche Mode fans appeared to be Lady Gaga fans. I didn’t know the band existed until I saw a mash-up of ‘Paparazzi’ with ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’. I advise everyone to check out Depeche Mode, they are so underrated.”
In the same interview she appears to believe that Vince Clarke (Erasure) is still part of the band: “I’m a huge fan of Erasure and it was so funny when I heard that Vince is also a part of Depeche Mode! It’s so unlike his Erasure sound!” So how did she end up choosing “People are people”? Simple: “My manager choose the song for me, he knows things so much better.” Ok… well, you all know what to expect: an Erasure version of “People are people”. That promises to be funny!
