A Question of Time (4:09)

Cover of The Singles 86>98

From The Singles 86>98 and 85 other releases

“A Question of Time” is Depeche Mode’s seventeenth UK single, released on August 11, 1986, following the similarly titled “A Question of Lust” single.

The 7” remix of “A Question of Time” runs at a slightly faster tempo and pitch than the original “Black Celebration” album version.

There is no new track for a B-Side (the first Depeche Mode single, other than the Double A-Side “Blasphemous Rumours / Somebody” without one), just a remix of “Black Celebration” and various live tracks.

The New Town Remix directly floats into the Live Remix on the limited 12” single with no pause.

The music video for “A Question of Time” is the first DM video to be directed by Anton Corbijn and brought forth a big relationship with him and the band which still lasts to this day. It was included on the Strange video and The Videos 86-98.

I've got to get to you first before they do
It's just a question of time before they lay their hands on you
And make you just like the rest
I've got to get to you first it's just a question of time
