Album Description
Available in:
"Walking in My Shoes" is Depeche Mode's twenty-eighth UK single, released on 26 April 1993, and the second single for the album Songs of Faith and Devotion. The song reached #14 on the UK singles chart and matched the success of previous single "I Feel You" on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, where it hit #1.
The 7" version of "Walking in My Shoes" is not the same as the one in the Songs of Faith and Devotion album. The sound has been made more noisy and dirty, especially the drums in the verse, and the intro has been shortened.
The B-side is "My Joy", the only exclusive B-Side from the Songs of Faith and Devotion album, and is a rock track in the vein of "I Feel You" and "Halo".
The music video for "Walking in My Shoes" was directed by Anton Corbijn and is based on Dante's Divine Comedy[citation needed]. At the beginning of the second verse, there's a shot of Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher, and Alan Wilder with naked women on their laps. This was removed in the MTV version in the US and replaced with footage of the three members standing still, alone, from earlier in the video. The uncut version is on The Videos 86-98, the Devotional and The Best Of, Volume 1 DVDs.
The song was covered by Canadian Grunge Band, Finger Eleven and was placed on their 2000 album The Greyest of Blue Skies.
