'Crucified' is one of two unlisted interludes that appears on the album 'Violator'. It is also commonly referred to as 'Interlude #2', with 'Interlude #1' appearing on 'Music For The Masses' and 'Interlude #3' appearing after Violator's 'Blue Dress'. It appears after 'Enjoy The Silence' and lasts about 1:38 minutes. It has a distorted sample of Andy Fletcher saying the word "crucified". Alan Wilder once commented in his [http://oldsite.recoil.co.uk/forum/qa/dmems2.htmShunt Q&A section]:  
'[[Interlude No. 2 - Crucified]]' is one of two unlisted instrumental interludes that appears on the 1990 [[Depeche Mode]] album <i>[[Violator]]</i>. It is also commonly referred to simply as 'Interlude #2', with '[[Interlude No. 1 - Mission Impossible|Interlude #1]]' appearing on <i>[[Music For The Masses]]</i> and '[[Interlude #3]]' appearing between '[[Blue Dress]]' and '[[Clean]]' on <i>Violator</i>. The interlude occurs between '[[Enjoy The Silence]]' and '[[Policy Of Truth]]'. Notably, the mostly instrumental interlude features a vocoded vocal by [[Andrew Fletcher]] ominously chanting the word "Crucified".
 
[[Alan Wilder]] comments on the production of this interlude in the <i>Violator</i> section of the [[Recoil]] [http://oldsite.recoil.co.uk/forum/qa/dmems2.htmShunt Q&A section]:  
<blockquote>
<blockquote>
"Dave plays a unique form of guitar. He has his own 'special' style. We used some of his playing as sound effects in one of the crossfade sections of 'Violator'."

Thus, this interlude appears to be the first noted recording of an instrumental delivery by Dave Gahan, and the second noted recording of a vocal by Andy Fletcher (with the first recording being for 'The Sun And The Rainfall', which you can listen [https://soundcloud.com/firstdevotee/tsar-fletch-00-33 here]).
This interlude features the first known example of a non-vocal, non songwriting-focused musical contribution by [[Dave Gahan]], and the second known example of a vocal delivery by Andy Fletcher featured on a Depeche Mode album song (the first recording being for '[[The Sun & The Rainfall]]'.
