Actually, I already reviewed this CD but I don't think I gave it the credit it truly deserves. Since first buying (and immediately reviewing) this single, I have been able to gather a more comprehensive understanding of DM and exactly where they're coming from. "Everything Counts" and "Work Hard" are not just "good pipe-clanging fun". These two songs, in a brief set of musical genius, embody an entire "era" of Depeche Mode's career. This era, starting with 'A Broken Frame', through 'Construction Time Again', and noticeably dying down after 'Some Great Reward', can basically be defined as DM's period of growing cynicism in our culture's seemingly beneficial idealistic values. Behind all those big words, the point that DM was trying to make with this single (and album as a whole) is that society is out to get us - maybe we shouldn't just accept everything we're told to believe as absolute fact.
"Work Hard" is an oversimplified view of one of Western culture's most prominent basic values. That is, "you've got to work hard if you want anything at all." In a way it's a satirical look at our society's idealism. Stay with me here... They say you can achieve anything if you work hard. 'Be all you can be!' that's the only way to get ahead in life, right? Yet we work and work and still we seem to accomplish nothing, so what's the deal? The poor are still poor... and so on. It seems those higher on the spectrum (elites?) take great pains to instill false hopes in us, the naive and unsuspecting proletariat, pawns of the world. No, I'm not over-analyzing this!! The song itself is quite dark. It has a sense of foreboding lurking throughout.

This song was actually written as martin's opinion on commerce in America. "Everything Counts" truly portrays what the country is based on,"living the American Dream."Once in an interview Dave said that "we believe that it(USA)is where we will make some real money." After hearing this I realized that DM had a deep connection with great underground/gothic/modern/synth-pop music as well as with milking the cow for all its worth. EC displays an interesting pop-funk mix. I really like the song because it inspires me when I read my economics text!
