On this day in 1994, Depeche Mode released “In Your Room” as a single in the UK. They are currently on tour in the EU. The music video for “In Your Room” (using the Zephyr mix) was directed by Anton Corbijn and features references to the videos for “Strangelove” (a model posing in her underwear), “I Feel You” (a woman dressed as Dave Gahan, wearing a pinstripe suit, sunglasses, and a wig), “Walking in My Shoes” (the bird costume), “Halo” (the people wearing clown makeup), “Enjoy the Silence” (Dave Gahan dressed as a king, holding the folding chair while walking in the road), “Personal Jesus” (the bandmembers wearing cowboy hats), and “Condemnation” (the white dress with ribbons on it that one of the women wears). Corbijn described the video as a retrospective of the work he had done with Depeche Mode. He said he made it that way because he was sure frontman Dave Gahan was going to die before Depeche Mode could release more songs. The video features Alexandra Kummer, who sometimes is partially clothed. Because of the partial nudity and scenes of bondage, the video only aired after prime time on MTV in the US. Since the video had only limited screen play the single was not a hit in the US. This is the last Depeche Mode single with Alan Wilder as a band member, and the last music video he appears in.
