Goth before the word.

Sisters of Mercy; original Temple of Love. Late 80’s. I was around 16 and rocked this into my ears on my bike, back in the day. Late at night, wound up on Lost Boys and the power of adolescent sex drive and a powerful imagination. There was another version that came out in the early 90’s with a rather operatic vocal added to the track. I don’t mind that one but the original is far better. Minimalist. Doesn’t try too hard. What it is is what it is. And what it is is a driving beat of brooding post-punk brilliance. Andrew Eldritch has a voice to remember. Perfect for this. Paint your walls black and crank it.
