RELEASE INFO


Depeche Mode "Little 15"



Single Released on 16 May 1988 in the UK



"Little 15" fo the was never intended to be a single. In fact, it barely made it onto the album, but a French record label wanted to release the song as a single, which became a popular import and a minor hit in the UK. The song's title, as well as its status as a minor release, contributed to its special catalog number "LITTLE15".


There was no remix of the song at the time of release (the 12" and 7" versions were the same); however, there are two piano instrumental B-sides, both performed by Alan Wilder. The first is "Stjärna" (Swedish for 'star') (mislabelled "St. Jarna"), written by Martin Gore. The 12" B-side also contains a performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata #14." According to his website, Wilder did not intend for it to be a B-side, as he was merely performing it for fun, but Gore stealthily recorded it. Wilder did not perform the song perfectly (his error occurs near the end of the song).


"The Singles 86>98" states that "Little 15" was only released in France. That is not true. The single was released in the UK, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Spain...and France.
