"Get the Balance Right!
" is the seventh single by Depeche Mode
, originally released on 31 January 1983. It is the first Depeche Mode single with Alan Wilder
as an official band member, and the first with a song written by both Martin Gore
and Wilder ("The Great Outdoors!").
In the music video Wilder
lip-syncs the first lines of the song, even though Dave Gahan
should be singing it. The band were too afraid to tell the director that Gahan was the lead singer.
For some reason the director made the assumption that the singer was Wilder and they were too embarrassed to point out his mistake, the video remains this way today.
The music video is not commercially available.
