About Stripped

"Stripped" is a song by British electronic music band Depeche Mode. It was released as the lead single from their fifth studio album, Black Celebration (1986), on 10 February 1986, through Mute Records. Written by the band's lead songwriter Martin Gore, "Stripped" has been described as an "ominous and intriguing pop song". It incorporates different samples into its instrumental; most notably, the sound of an idling Porsche engine was taken, altered slightly, then used as a percussive element. It was the band's sixth consecutive single to enter the UK Top 20, peaking at number 15. Elsewhere, it peaked at number 4 in Germany and reached the top 10 in Finland, Sweden, and Switzerland. German metal band Rammstein later covered the song for the 1998 Depeche Mode tribute album For the Masses. Despite having a controversial music video, it would go on to peak at number 14 in Germany and receive praise from Depeche Mode band members.

Come with me
Into the trees
We'll lay on the grass
And let the hours pass 
Take my hand
Come back to the land
Let's get away
Just for one day 
Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone
Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone 
Metropolis
Has nothing on this
You're breathing in fumes
I taste when we kiss 
Take my hand
Come back to the land 
Where everything's ours
For a few hours 
Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone
Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone 
Let me hear you
Make decisions
Without your television
Let me hear you speaking
Just for me 
Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone 
Let me hear you speaking
Just for me 
Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone 
Let me hear you crying
Just for me
