Notes

In Glitter Mix of 'Pleasure, Little Treasure' you can hear a sample which has been reversed and slowed down. In this sample you can hear Andy saying "It could probably work" and what sounds like Martin saying "Back to Back".

When Depeche Mode was interviewed about the songs on the '101' CD for the April 1989 issue of French magazine 'Best', Andy Fletcher said (translated from French):

"It's the B-side of 'Never Let Me Down Again', a good old rock'n'roll [song], fun to play on stage."

Lyrics


Pleasure, Little Treasure

Pleasure, little treasure


Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason I've a reason to give


Pleasure, little treasure


Everybody's looking for someone to follow

Finding the whole thing hard to swallow

Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason I've a reason to give


Pleasure, little treasure


Everybody's looking for a new sensation

Everybody's talking about the state of the nation

Everybody's searching for a promised land

Everybody's failing to understand


Pleasure, little treasure


Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason

I've a reason to give


Pleasure, little treasure


Maternity frocks and paternity suits

If that's what you want

They're waiting for you

Everybody needs some reason or other

You'll find a reason when you discover


Pleasure, little treasure


Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason

I've a reason to give


Pleasure, little treasure
