Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode released 'Personal Jesus' in the autumn of 1989 as the first single from their album 'Violator'. According to Martin Gore, the song was inspired by the book 'Elvis and me' by Priscilla Presley: 'It's a song about being a Jesus for somebody else, someone to give you hope and care. It's about how Elvis was her man and her mentor and how often that happens in love relationships; how everybody's heart is like a god in some way, and that's not a very balanced view of someone, is it?'

My collection: 7" single no. 1067
Found: HMV, London, October 18, 1989
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Personal Jesus' / 'Dangerous'
