Default Depeche Mode has written our anthem!

I was obsessed with this song and video in high school, and it now occurs to me that it might be the perfect anthem for polyamory!

I don't see the relevance.

I generally don't click on links people put in posts unless they provide a transcript or description.

It's a music video called Freelove by Depeche Mode, and it's a nice song about free love. There, now you can watch it.

For those whom don't want to click on the link OP posted, here are the lyrics for you to read.

If you've been hiding from love
If you've been hiding from love
I can understand where you're coming from
I can understand where you're coming from

If you've suffered enough
If you've suffered enough
I can understand what you're thinking of
I can see the pain that you're frightened of

And I'm only here
To bring you free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

I've been running like you
I've been running like you
Now you understand why I'm running scared
Now you understand why I'm running scared

I've been searching for truth
I've been searching for truth
And I haven't been getting anywhere
No I haven't been getting anywhere

And I'm only here
To bring you free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

Hey girl
You've got to take this moment
Then let it slip away
Let go of complicated feelings
Then there's no price to pay

We've been running from love
We've been running from love
And we don't know what we're doing here
No we don't know what we're doing here

We're only here
Sharing our free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love


I am 40 yrs old..yes I just told my real age, I am not ashamed of it, nor do I feel "over the hill" as others say they do..4-0 is just a number. LOL

Anyhow, I am a long time Depeche Mode fan. Frankly Jeni, I too as OP has posted, do not see any connection with your interpretation of this song as being a POLYAMORY ANTHEM. The way the words and meaning of the song are interpreted by myself is that he is talking about "free love" as in no strings attached SEX. EI, swinging, sex w fans on the road knowing thr is no strings attached bc he will be moving on..etc...

Sorry, I just don't see the connections you have made.
