"Get Right With Me" is a song from the 1993 album Songs Of Faith And Devotion by Depeche Mode.


Daryl Bamonte on the recording of "Get Right With Me":

"Hildia Campbell and Samantha Smith were brought in to sing backing vocals on the gospel/hip-hop hybrid 'Get Right With Me’. Never one to resist challenging himself, Dave insisted on singing this track, even though it was penciled in for Martin, and showed another dimension to his voice."[1]

Martin Gore told Swedish magazine "POP" in 1993 (translated from Swedish):

"We had already done the vocal tracks on all the songs, but Flood had this idea about a gospel choir. I was very suspicious, I thought we would lose what we’d already achieved. Which was actually quite good! It sounded a bit like Beatles circa 66-67. And I like The Beatles. But as soon as they came into the studio and started singing, the song was given a whole new dimension."


Get Right With Me

I will have faith in man

That is hard to understand

Show some humility

You have the ability

Get right with me

Friends, if you've lost your way

You will find it again some day

Come down from your pedestals

And open your mouth, that's all

Get right with me

Life is such a short thing

That I cannot comprehend

But if this life were a bought thing

There are ways I know we'd mend

People, take my advice

Already told you once, once or twice

Don't waste your energy

Making apologies

Get right with me
