Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence (cover versions)


"Enjoy the Silence" is Depeche Mode's twenty-fourth UK single, released on 5 February 1990, and the second single from the then upcoming album Violator. "Enjoy the Silence" was re-released as a single in 2004 for the Depeche Mode remix project Remixes 81 - 04, and was titled "Enjoy the Silence (Reinterpreted)" or, more simply, "Enjoy the Silence 04". The "Reinterpreted" version was remixed by Mike Shinoda, the rapper and producer for the American nu metal/alternative rock band Linkin Park. As it is one of Depeche Mode's most well-known songs to date, it has been recorded as a cover version by many other artists, including Breaking Benjamin, Keane, Tori Amos, Lacuna Coil, Nada Surf, Entwine, Failure, It Dies Today, Evergreen Terrace, Tanghetto, The Academy Is... with Cobra Starship, Anberlin, HIM, Matthew Good, Bell X1, Apoptygma Berzerk, and No Use for a Name. Today, many people consider this as Depeche Mode's signature song.


The single is Gold certificated in the US and Germany.
The song won Best British Single at the 1991 BRIT Awards.


"Enjoy the Silence" became one of the band's most successful singles, and its first UK Top 10 hit since 1984. The single rocketed up the UK Singles Chart to #6, remaining there for three weeks. This was the band's highest-charting single since "People Are People" peaked at #4 in 1984. Additionally, other than "People Are People", only two other singles released by the band had reached as high as #6: 1982's "See You" and 1983's "Everything Counts".


On top of this, the song reached #8 on the US Billboard Hot 100, to date the only Depeche Mode single to achieve top 10 status. At the time, the only other Depeche Mode single to hit the US Top 20 was "People Are People", which hit #13. The single also topped the US Modern Rock Tracks chart, another first for the band (as this chart had been created in 1988). The chart measures radio airplay on US modern rock stations.

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm
