On this day back in 1993, Depeche Mode released the U.S.12" for their second single from Songs Of Faith And Devotion, Walking In My Shoes. I still remember the hype and the buzz around this song, which was the perfect follow up to its rockier predecessor, I Feel You.

Walking in My Shoes, Extended Twelve Inch Mix
Walking in My Shoes, Random Carpet Mix
