Notes

Martin Gore in Bong issue no. 37, 1998:

"If I really had to stick my neck out and choose my all time favourite song, it would probably be 'Walking In My Shoes'. I think it has a great melody – the words and the subject matter really complement each other perfectly. The instrumentation is also interesting."

Q&A from Alan Wilder's Shunt:

From: Xavi Martí

Q: I'm fascinated with the darker-pretty-magical-elegant-emotive-cleanest-perfect sound of the DM song 'Walking in My Shoes'. What was the process you used to construct this song?

A: It was constructed using an unusual method for us, i.e. jamming together. Martin played the guitar, I played bass and we ran a rhythm machine - this was just to get the basic feel for the track - and after much trial and error, the chorus bass line and guitar pattern fell into place. From that point onwards, Flood and I began to construct the various drum loops, the string arrangements, the main riff (which combined a piano and harpsichord through a distorted guitar amp) and all the other bits and pieces. By contrast, the bass line for the verses was much more problematic and in fact didn't get written until the very last moment.

Alan Wilder said in the May 1993 issue of Keyboard magazine:

"The piano part at the beginning of 'Walking in my Shoes' was put through a guitar processor, which distorted it and made it more edgy. We added a harpsichord sample on top of that."
