More Info:
All By Themselves[*]

Alone in the house
In a modern old house
Radios turn on by themselves
Lights go on and off by themselves
All by themselves

There's a voice on the telephone
Calls my name and the voice is gone
Radios turn on by themselves
Lights go on and off by themselves
All by themselves

Past meets present
Undying love
The gift from the past to the present
The gift of love

Strange visions on the TV screen
Through the interference a face you'll see
Stereos turn on by themselves
Favorite records find their way from the shelves
All by themselves

Past meets present
Undying love
The gift from the past to the present
The gift of love

All By Themselves is a demo track written by Martin Gore. It appears as part of Martin's 5-track demo tape for the 1983 "Construction Time Again" album as the final track on the tape; the other four demos are available to listen to on this page. This track may have been intended as a B-side for a single release of And Then... which never materialized.[1]
Alan Wilder stated on Shunt Q&A that he does not remember this song, but perhaps his memory of this song has simply faded with time.[2]

All By Themselves (Demo). This demo is a very gloomy, depressing sounding song with subdued vocals which are difficult to comprehend.


1. Alan Wilder believes that And Then... was at one point considered to be released as a single; see Shunt Q&A: Construction Time Again.
2. Source: Shunt Q&A: ADDITIONAL TRACKS - remixes / B-sides / demos, second page ; about one-third of the way down the page
