Top 10 Depeche Mode Songs

The Top Ten
1 Enjoy the Silence Enjoy the Silence Cover Art

I can't explain what this song means to me... I remember listening to it a lot on the radio when I was a child. I didn't know the artist's name and the title of the song at that time. Enjoy the Silence is a timeless song, whenever I listen to it nowdays, it feels like nothing has changed for 20+ years

The lyrics are extraordinary, the message is deep and the song is overall fantastic. You get that beat with the ocassional choir, the guitar and Gahan's simple and sublime voice.

The perfect music of 80s to 90s transition. At some points it sounds 80s, at other points, it sounds 90s, perfectly blended and composed. Well done.

One of most covered song by the most influential band of all time, really the atmosphere this songs creates is beyond everything..

2 Personal Jesus Personal Jesus Cover Art

This song features the catchiest guitar riff ever. Depeche Mode is one of the most visionary bands in the history of music, side by side with the Beatles or David Bowie.

3 Reasons Why This Song is Awesome:

1. One of the greatest rock songs of the 90s

2. Was in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Radio X)

3. It was covered by Marilyn Manson

Good song by Violator was released in March of 1990. Is remembered as one of their 90's albums. Sorry

First Depeche Mode Song I heard, and definitely one of the best!

3 Never Let Me Down Again Never Let Me Down Again Cover Art

Right in the middle of the heydays and right the best song of 'em all! Music For The Masses made a timeless statement that will only vanish with the demise of the World.

I love this song. I think it's number one in my opinion. Good times when I sing this song.

One of the best songs but clear, Violator Album was the best.

This is an amazing song, there is nothing more to add.

4 Policy of Truth Policy of Truth Cover Art

Policy of Truth is missing from a lot of the lists I look at. I think it's definitely top 5, even though Black Celebration is probably their best album.

Very good music and lyrics... You just get strange feeling when you hear that beautiful music... So consuming...

Amazing sounding song but the message is clear, 'truth' will always be subjective = proceed at your own risk...

Never again is what you swore the time before!

5 People are People People are People Cover Art

Probably my favorite Depeche Mode song. It's such a busy song and those synthesizers must being doing 15 different things at once. That part before the chorus sounds so cool and I just want to get up and dance to this whenever I hear it. The vocal harmonization and the layers come together perfectly. Those are some deep lyrics too.

Great song! Should definitely at least be in the top 10!

6 Precious Precious Cover Art

I hope it's my eyes HE'S seeing through! Damaged and broken. GOD has a Master Plan that only He understands. I'll still keep room in my heart for two. I looove this song. Keep on keeping on DM! Always and forever a diehard devotee.

If you understand the backstory behind this song, then you'll understand why it's in the top 10 Depeche Mode songs of all time.

I searched it just today... I heard it as many as years ago when it was first on MTV in India. It's the Best...

What a beautiful song! Love Martin's amazing songwriting as well as Dave's vocals! Just so dynamic.

7 World In My Eyes World In My Eyes Cover Art

Just think this songs nails it (literally...and figuratively) Yeah, it's about s3x, but listen how it builds twice and the lyrics reflect that..

Such a great song, it's not only the #1 for me from DM, it's the #1 from all music.

This song is great should be in top ten.

Great song. I adore it

8 Halo Halo Cover Art

How come this awesome piece of music, is this down on the top 10?
This is insane! It's one of the best songs in 'violator'

Grat intro also... ><

Get this to the top 10 now! This is a damn masterpiece!

9 Strangelove Strangelove Cover Art

One of the most known songs...

Deserves higher rating. My absolute numer 1 favourite from them

10 Everything Counts Everything Counts Cover Art

I've liked this song since I heard it in Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories.

The grabbing hands, grab all they can! I love to sleep to the reprise version haha it's so peaceful

I love this song. Great music

The Contenders
11 In Your Room In Your Room Cover Art

Heads and shoulders over every ablbum before it and since! I would kill to see where speeches sound would be if Alan was still there, but none-the-less, SOFAD is still my favorite album ever, and this is possibly my favorite song from them! Number one with a bullet here!

I am coming over and over back to Songs of Faith and Devotion. The best I would have to choose would be this one or One Cares. Of course then there is Walking in my shoes and Judas. Love the whole album.

In Your Room is an incredibly dark song and has a great emotional impact on listeners. What I enjoy the most about it is the depth the instrumental on the album version holds. Best song from SOFAD full stop!

It is the best song by Depeche Mode ever. The ambiance is awesome and the vocals are superb. It is very a soulful track. I never get enough of listening this song.

12 Walking in My Shoes Walking in My Shoes Cover Art

Best wong ever written by Martin Gore... just awesome... the «emo» part at the end of the song is something that we hardly heard before... yes electronic but so emotion in that song... especially when we know what Depeche Mode members went through...

This is in my top 5 songs of all time. Great sound, great mixing, great lyrics.

I think this is actually one of the best songs ever written!

One of my top three favorite songs of all time.

13 Just Can't Get Enough Just Can't Get Enough Cover Art

Could there be 2 better songs that this and New Order's Blue Monday? And this from an Iron Maiden fan...

I think that this one is the most listenable of their songs.

Masterpiece! Can't get that out of my head that notes!

When I see you celtic, I go out of my head!

14 It's No Good It's No Good Cover Art

A relaxing song with a little dark side on the chorus.. With a twist.. Love it.. But the video its not as good as the song but still one of my top 5 favorites..

Masterpiece, the way syncs pulsate independently from vocals yet intertwine perfectly. Easy lyrics anyone can sing to.

Excellent piece, hard and raw as the most representative of what Depeche Mode is,

One of my top 3!

WHAT!?! how is this so far back? should be in top 5. So should "Policy of Truth" and "I Feel You" along with #1 and #2, which should stay exactly where they are.

15 Stripped Stripped Cover Art

I am a die hard Depeche fan. This is my favorite. From the Black Celebration album. Truly a perfect piece of work.

Wow, just awesome.
The dark atmosphere of this song combined with Dave low vocals really makes this song epic

Unreachable song! And linked to a lot of memories.

Number one in my opinion. Brilliant and moving

16 A Pain that I'm Used To A Pain that I'm Used To Cover Art

Such a creepy song. Should be the theme song for the T.V. show Dexter.

17 A Question of Time A Question of Time Cover Art

Definitely should be in top ten!

18 I Feel You I Feel You Cover Art

Great song! Sets the tone for the entire "Songs of Faith and Devotion" album : passionate, lustful and irreverent.

Probably my favorite Depeche Mode song next to Enjoy The Silence.

Why so low? , that song is one of the best of all time. Guys common give a some votes

Can't believe this is 1.

19 Blasphemous Rumours Blasphemous Rumours Cover Art

We all know that the first album shouldn't be considered as part of the canon. The second album didn't contained any hits.
Then came Everything Counts. Some took a notice.
And then Blasphemous Rumours and the playground wasn't the same anymore. Depeche Mode became the leader of something that didn't even had a name. Everything blossomed from here on. The seeds were there before, but that became visible only in retrospective.

This song is a cornerstone. The Rosetta Stone to understand what this band is all about.

This song shook my when I listened to it for the first time. And it did so again and again.

The only problem I have with this raking is that Blasphemous Rumours isn't in the Top 10.

Says what we are all thinking in tragedy.

20 Behind the Wheel Behind the Wheel Cover Art

Very underrated record thou was never gonna be easy to pick a favourite..

Very underrated. One of their best songs, definitely top 10 in mi opinion.

Very melodic and beautiful song ever!

Easy the best song!

21 Wrong Wrong Cover Art

The best. The awesomeness in this song is in the 'bizarre-nonsense' feeling it gives to you for listening.

Awesome song... never heard that kind of sound before... not even close from any other band's sound... Very Depeche Mode'esque sound

It should be number 2

22 Sweetest Perfection Sweetest Perfection Cover Art

Really translates well an addict's feelings. Great song.

23 Black Celebration Black Celebration Cover Art

Incredible song, one that's even better live. Such a fantastic portrayal of making the best of a bad situation, there's a beautiful tension in the synths.

24 Higher Love

I wonder if this list has really been done by DM fans?
How can we forget this opening song from the Devotional tour?
This is a masterpiece.

Takes you to another dimension.

25 Barrel of a Gun Barrel of a Gun Cover Art

Awesome song, provoking lyrics. Should be much higher in the list. Underrated. Ever feel like "God"'s watching you or asks you to be something you're not? Then answer him with this song!
"I never agreed to be your holy one."

Only #27!? I just have to vote for this. Ultra is an excellent album, onecof the best. This song is so dark, so aggressive, but at the same personal, emotional. This song and album are underrated!

First song that brought me into the Depeche Mode world... never looked behind after...

The darkest, the deepest, but also one of the bests. The music video is also a masterpiece
