"Just Can't Get Enough" is a song by Depeche Mode from their debut album, Speak and Spell (1981). It was originally released in the UK in September 1981. It was recorded during the summer of that year, and was the band's first single to be released in the United States, on 18 February 1982. A riff-driven synthpop song, "Just Can't Get Enough" was the final single to be written by founder member Vince Clarke, who left the band in December 1981.
Due to Vince's songwriting, the song has a bubbly feel that stands in contrast to the brooding feel of most later Depeche Mode songs.
The single version of "Just Can't Get Enough" is the same version that appears on the UK version of Speak and Spell. The 12" single featured a "Schizo Mix", which is an extended version with additional synth parts adding a sinister feel to the track. This version appears on the US version of Speak and Spell, the UK re-release of Speak and Spell, the rerelease of The Singles 81→85 and Remixes 81–04.
In addition, the single's B-side "Any Second Now" was the first commercially available Depeche Mode instrumental. It shows up on the UK rerelease of Speak and Spell. A version including vocals (the first Depeche Mode vocals to be handled by Martin Gore) appeared on the album as "Any Second Now (Voices)". There is also an extended version, the "Altered" Mix. In the United States, the B-side is "Tora! Tora! Tora!". On the album, the song is crossfaded with the previous track, "Photographic", but on the single, the introduction is clean.
The single reached number 8 on the UK Singles Chart and number 26 on the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, making it their highest-charting single at the time on both counts. It also became the band's first (and biggest) hit in Australia, reaching number 4.
"Just Can't Get Enough" was the first Depeche Mode song to get a music video. It is the only Depeche Mode video with Vince Clarke. The director was Clive Richardson. File Hashes
