Some Great Reward (1984)
In their early years, Depeche Mode had only really attained success in Europe and Australia, however this changed in March 1984 when they released the single “People Are People”. The song reached #2 in Ireland, #4 in UK and Switzerland and #1 in West Germany, where it was used as the theme to West German TVs coverage of the 1984 Olympics. It belatedly reached #13 on the US charts in mid-1985. The song has since become an anthem for the LGBT community and is regularly played at gay establishments and gay pride festivals. Sire, the bands North American record label, released a compilation of the same name which included tracks from A Broken Frame and Construction Time Again as well as several b-sides.
In September 1984, Some Great Reward was released. Melody Maker claimed that the album made one “sit up and take notice of what is happening here, right under your nose.” In contrast to the political and environmental subjects addressed on the previous album, the songs on Some Great Reward were mostly concerned with more personal themes such as sexual politics (“Master and Servant”), adulterous relationships (“Lie to Me”), and arbitrary divine justice (“Blasphemous Rumours”). Also included was the first Martin Gore ballad (“Somebody”) such songs would become a feature of all following albums. “Somebody” was released as a double a-side with “Blasphemous Rumours” and was the first single with Gore on lead vocals. Some Great Reward was the first Depeche Mode album to enter the US album charts, and it made the Top 10 in several European countries.
The World We Live In and Live in Hamburg was the bands first video release. It is an almost complete film of a concert from their 1984 Some Great Reward Tour, in Hamburg, Germany.
In July 1985, the band played their first-ever concerts behind the Iron Curtain, in Budapest and Warsaw.
