Depeche Mode - Get The Balance Right!
"Get the Balance Right!" single was released on January 31, 1983.
Released in the US on the compilation album "People are People" on July 2, 1984.
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. (WIKI) After all my years listening to Depeche Mode, and this song being one of my favorites, I didn't know that.
