From Hungary, With Accordions

@designlk posted this gem to Twitter yesterday and I just had to share. YouTube is chuck full of cover songs, most of them bad, and Depeche Mode tracks are no exception. However, this accordion cover of “Wrong” by Zsadany Csaky and Szlobodan Wertetics manages to successfully capture every layer and intricacy of one of Depeche’s most complicated compositions to date. It wouldn’t have occurred to me to think of “Wrong” in the context of a bellowing aerophone, but the low, menacing pulsations of air suit the dark nature of the song quite well. Accompanied by an appropriate video, it seems as if they shot the song through a time-cannon and we got “Wrong” – The Vintage Air Around the Bellows Mix. A fascinating and creative take.

Amanda is an enthusiastic, globe-trotting Mode fan who discovered the band in late 1998. Although she often feels like she got a late start in the Depeche Mode's career, she's survived nearly 20 years of the fandom, five new albums and multiple meetings with her love for the band intact (and stronger than ever). Amanda is a life-long creative, a classically trained graphic designer, working professionally as a User Experience Designer for one of the world's largest technology companies. When not at work or traveling for Depeche, she enjoys character illustration, comics, movies and Japanese Culture. And cats. Lots of Cats.
