Depeche Mode – It’s no good

“It’s No Good” is Depeche Mode’s thirty-second (32nd) UK single, released on March 31, 1997 (April 15 in the US), and the second single for the then upcoming album Ultra. It reached #5 in the UK Singles Chart. “It’s No Good” is a moodily rhythmic, perhaps even “sexy” song with a distinct lyrical hook in the chorus: Don’t say you want me. Don’t say you need me. Don’t say you love me. It’s understood. It played well on American radio and MTV, and is a favorite live.[citation needed] The “Speedy J Mix” made it onto Remixes 81 – 04 in 2004, as did the “Club 69 Future Mix” (Remix Peter Rauhofer), which was previously promo only. The B-side is another instrumental, called “Slowblow”. It was the last actual B-side from the Ultra era, making the album the only one by Depeche Mode to not have a non-remix/non-live vocal B-side track (Although if you exclude non-exclusive songs, Black Celebration can count as well). The instrumental itself is slow and moody. The music video for “It’s No Good” was directed by Anton Corbijn, depicting the band as a low-rent lounge act at a number of sleazy gigs. An alternate video was recorded for “It’s No Good” in 2001 as a screen projection for the Exciter Tour. On May 15, 1997, the band went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and performed the song, a recording made available at The official Depeche Mode website. It was the first time they performed a song on an American TV show since 1988, when they performed “Strangelove”. The “Hardfloor Mix” of the song was featured briefly in the Friends episode The One with Joey’s Dirty Day. “It’s No Good” was also used in an episode of Nash Bridges. Chevelle covered “It’s No Good” on 2002′s “Wonder What’s Next Deluxe Version”. The Dreaming also covered the song on their 2011 album Puppet. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

It’s no good Lyrics – Depeche Mode:
Gonna take my time.
I have all the time in the world.
To make you mine.
It is written in the stars above.
The gods decree.
You’ll be right here by my side.
Right next to me.
You can run but you cannot hide.

Don’t say you want me.
Don’t say you need me.
Don’t say you love me.
It’s understood.
Don’t say you’re happy.
Out there without me.
I know you can’t be.
‘Cause it’s no good.

I’ll be fine.
I’ll be waiting patiently.
Till you see the signs.
And come running to my open arms.
When will you realize.
Do we have to wait ’till our worlds collide.
Open up your eyes.
You can’t turn back the tide.

Don’t say you want me.
Don’t say you need me.
Don’t say you love me.
It’s understood.
Don’t say you’re happy.
Out there without me.
I know you can’t be.
‘Cause it’s no good.

Gonna to take my time.
I have all the time in the world.
To make you mine.
It is written in the stars above.

Don’t say you want me.
Don’t say you need me.
Don’t say you love me.
It’s understood.
Don’t say you’re happy.
Out there without me.
I know you can’t be.
‘Cause it’s no good.
