In January, I finished an Ayria cover version of Depeche Mode's "In Your Room" from their CD "Songs of Faith and Devotion".

Ayria - Cover of Depeche Mode's "In Your Room" (mp3 Clip).

Order the Compilation, see more details about it and hear clips from all the bands involved here: http://www.depeche-mode-tribute.com

I wanted to cover this song for nostalgic reasons. I remember loving this CD when it came out it was my favourite track off the CD so I'd blast it while in my bedroom. I connected with the lyrics in my own way with my room being my favourite place in the universe to be. When I was in my early teens, Depeche Mode came in concert and it ended up being the first "gothy" concert I had been to. I didn't even know that Depeche Mode were "goth", but I remember being overwhelmed by how many girls in stripped tights were there and the experience of seeing Depeche Mode live and them performing that song was overwhelming and amazing. Anyways, the memories of that song and how it reminded me of my old room and how much time I spent there has inspired me to post pics and show a piece of my world. I still spend lots of time in my room. It's the space that I write in, record in, surround myself with the stuff that I love plus the rest of my crap:

NOTE: I'VE POSTED THESE PICS BEFORE BUT APPARENTLY POSTED ABOUT THE COMP PRE-MATURELY. HERE'S THE CONTEXT NOW, AND WHY I POSTED THESE PICS. I APOLOGIZE FOR THE DUPLICATE PICS ;)

Here's my space where I write my songs (messy desk):



Here's me recording the Depeche Mode cover in that space:






Just for fun, here's my "Bling Shelf". Yep, I have a bling shelf in my room. It's important to surround yourself with things that make you happy ;)






This is a print that I bought. It called out to me and also makes me happy:

Wow cool! I'd love to hear it!

Actually, until last year, I've never covered ANY song! Now just in the past year, we've done Deftones (Change), Pat Benetar (Invincible) and now Depeche Mode. It's really weird doing covers instead of my own stuff, but an easy change to not write my own lyrics ;)

I know what you mean. Although In Your Room is not as easy as it first looks is it?

I remember these pics! Can't wait to hear the song (can't listen to it as I'm at work right now, and they frown on streaming audio). Rock on! :-D
