BDSM-related music: Depeche Mode – Master and servant

Domination is the name of the game, in bed or in life!

Yes, yes, I know this song was originally intended as a manifesto addressed to politics and the way the world is ruled, but if you detach yourself from the political views it fights against, you will see that it can very well relate to the world that interests us. It’s a lot like life, right?

Depeche Mode – Master and servant

It's a lot
It's a lot
Like life

There's a new game
We like to play you see
A game with added reality
You treat me like a dog
Get me down on my knees

We call it master and servant
We call it master and servant

It's a lot like life
This play between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Forget all about equality

Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

It's a lot like life
And thats what's appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling
From disposable fun
Then this is the one

Domination's the name of the game
In bed or in life
They're both just the same
Except in one you're fulfilled
At the end of the day

Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

Let's play master and servant
Come on master and servant.

  1. haha, wow I can’t believe I never heard that before! And I’ve always loved Depeche Mode!

    • What, about the political implications of the song or the BDSM ones? 🙂

      • I think they’re explicitly talking about BDSM, saying it’s a game that mimics real life. Kinda freaking out all the vanilla people telling them that their real life is just like a scene. I mean, it seems mostly about politics, but I think they’re really aware of kink (I mean, look at what they’re wearing, lol).

      • Yeah, that’s what I thought at the beginning, but I’ve mentioned it to a friend who is into kink and also a huge DM fan and she was absolutely horrified that I could think that the song wasn’t about politics only.

        Nevertheless, we still think it’s about kink, right? 🙂

      • Well I definitely do 😛 Hey, have you heard the 3 days grace song ‘pain’? I always thought of it as a great breakup sex song, but it’s also kinda hinting at some kink…you should listen and tell me what you think 🙂

      • Oh, nice song! I never heard it before; it hit me from the beginning with “Pain, I like it rough/ ‘Cause I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all”; couldn’t agree more. Yeah, I guess it could be seen as being bdsm-related, though it sounds more about being hurt by love. But then again, most songs I write about have a double meaning, so why not? 🙂
