Depeche Mode - Behind the Wheel (Parralox Remix V3 Instrumental)

John von Ahlen has a radio show called Neon Nights, which is on JOY949, Australia's largest LGBTIQ Radio Station, and his co-host is Costa Lakoumentas.

In December 2019 John and Costa saw the Depeche Mode tribute band "Strangelove" perform in Melbourne, Australia.

The concert was simply amazing, and was like seeing Depeche Mode perform live in the late 80s. The sounds and visuals were perfect.

When "Behind the Wheel" started playing, we both found ourselves dancing to its relentless beat and I think we both simultaneously said "this needs a dance remix - with COWBELLS!".

Fast forward to early 2020 and the cowbells have arrived :)

Enjoy the non-silence :)

Behind the Wheel
(Martin Gore)

My little girl, drive anywhere
Do what you want
I don't care
Tonight I'm in the hands of fate
I hand myself over on a plate

Oh, little girl, there are times when I feel
I'd rather not be the one behind the wheel
Come, pull my strings
Watch me move, I do anything

Sweet little girl, I prefer
You behind the wheel and me the passenger
Drive, I'm yours to keep
Do what you want, I'm going cheap

You're behind the wheel tonight
You're behind the wheel tonight
You're behind the wheel tonight
You're behind the wheel tonight
You're behind the wheel tonight

If ever there was a new electronic pop band to encapsulate and emulate the legendary stylings of Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and the spirit of Madonna in her 80s day-glo era, then Australia’s Parralox are that modern-day reincarnation. ... more
