Walking In My Shoes by Depeche Mode
"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". Show video tutorial!
