Notes

Dave Gahan told Uncle Sally*s magazine (translated from German):

"I remember a B-side called 'Work Hard', which mainly consisted of wood breaking. We ran around with a hammer and toolbox across the junkyards in East London and crashed everything we could find. Gareth Jones had a cassette recorder and a microphone, and so we came back into the studio with loud, strange sounds, which we would put in a sampler or on an analogue tape, and cut up again and again until a good rhythm came out of it."

Lyrics


Work Hard

You've got to work hard

You've got to work hard

If you want anything at all


Nothing comes easy

And that's a fact

Nothing comes easy

But a broken back


Nothing comes easy

It never will

Nothing comes easy

But a broken will


So work hard
