"Pleasure, Little Treasure" as written by and Martin Gore....
Everybody's looking for someone to follow
Finding the whole thing hard to swallow
Everybody's looking for a reason to live
If you're looking for a reason I've a reason to give
Pleasure, little treasure

Everybody's looking for a new sensation
Everybody's talking about the state of the nation
Everybody's searching for a promised land
Everybody's failing to understand
Pleasure, little treasure

Everybody's looking for a reason to live
If you're looking for a reason
I've a reason to give
Pleasure, little treasure

Maternity frocks and paternity suits
If that's what you want
They're waiting for you
Everybody needs some reason or other
You'll find a reason when you discover
Pleasure, little treasure

Everybody's looking for a reason to live
If you're looking for a reason
I've a reason to give
Pleasure, little treasure

    General CommentTo be honest, I don't really know exactly what this song is about, but I'm going to take a guess. I think that its about sex being an escape from the trials and doldrums of life.

    Love the manic, kinky little beat of this song. DM really killed this one on the 101 dvd. Martin's guitar playing was awesome!!

    General CommentI've always thought this song as a bit of a sequal to Black Celebration... about life being mundane and bleak so we find happiness and relief in the little things around us. With Black Celebration it was like knowing you've made it and also companionship are what make everything okay. But with this song it's clearly sexual! It's also nowhere near as dark, BC is deep and very VERY dark... this is dancy and sexy. I think that BC was personal, like 'I can't be bothered with life and I need something to live for' whereas Pleasure is more like 'you can't be bothered with life, so I'll show you something to live for.' I can see a similar sort of sequel-esque thing with a few DM songs (Shake The Disease and Stories Of Old) but basically I think that like so many other songs 'I Want You Now' 'Fly on The Windscreen' ETC this could very well be another 'I love you/We're all gonna die/Life is shit... I know, let's have sex?' number. Mr Gore is good at writing these... If Pleasure Little Treasure and I Want You Now did not get him laid like 7892653+ times there is something wrong with the world!
