Notes

In May/June 2020, someone named Paul Spector claimed that his brother had written the lyrics to 'New Life' (you can read that here). In July 2020, a former bandmate of Paul Spector, named Jeff McCall, uploaded a song titled 'Do I Know You' on YouTube, of which its verses carry the same melody as those in Depeche Mode's song 'Dreaming Of Me'. Jeff wrote the following:

"Here is a recording of my former Malicieux Garde bandmate Adam Spector, jamming with his cousin Vince Clarke. Vince is playing drums and singing whilst Adam plays the synths. This was recorded before Composition Of Sound changed their name to Depeche Mode. The Song 'Do I Know You' was written by Adam and was later performed by Malicieux Garde and became a fixture of our live set. You can watch a performance of it here."

Lyrics


Dreaming Of Me

Light switch

Man switch

Film was broken only then

All the night

Fused tomorrow

Dancing with a distant friend


Filming and screening

I picture the scene

Filming and dreaming

Dreaming of me


So we left

Understanding

Clean-cut, so we're sounding fast

Talked of sad

I talked of war

I laughed and climbed the rising cast


Filming and screening

I picture the scene

Filming and dreaming

Dreaming of me


Quickly I remembered

Fused and saw a face before

Timing reason

Understanding

Like association hall


Filming and screening

I picture the scene

Filming and dreaming

Dreaming of me


Just dreaming of me


It's only me


Just me
