2023.01.22 00:54 DeinLichtel In-Depth Depeche Mode Discography Analysis
As a side project, I’ve been playing a lot with Spotify’s API, and especially it’s audio features recently and thought it’d be interesting to take a look at the results for Depeche Mode songs. Just take all of this with a grain of salt ;). Keep on scrolling if you’re not into statistics.submitted by DeinLichtel to depechemode [link] [comments]
*BEGIN TLDR*: I analysed the entire Depeche Mode discography using Spotify’s API and got some interesting results. Quick result overview:
Now to the a detailed explanation of what I've done.
DataI used this Spotify Playlist as a basis for the analysis. I made sure only to include one version of each song. If there’s a single and an album version, I chose the album version. The only exceptions to this are “Enjoy the Silence” and “Personal Jesus”, for which I included both single and album version because of the huge differences between them. I also excluded remixes except “In Your Room (Zephyr Mix)”, “Freelove (Flood Mix)” (singles), and “Never Let Me Down Again (Split Mix)” (played live). Finally, I had to exclude “Corrupt” because of the three minutes of silence it has on Spotify which affected the analysis heavily.
I'm only going to show you an excerpt of the results here. The full result is available on Results.
Audio FeaturesSpotify’s track analysis provides a score on certain song characteristics. Websites like Tunebat use these as well. If you want to verify my data, please use a website like this (they multiply the scores by 100).
Feature values (except mode and tempo): Every track is assigned a value between 0.0 and 1.0.
mode value: 0 indicated minor key, 1 indicated major key.
I focused on the characteristics danceability, energy, instrumentalness, mode, tempo, valence, and speechiness.
I decided to exclude acousticness because the results were incredibly off (Such as giving “Waiting for the Night” a score of 0.88). I also excluded liveness because we know that none of the tracks in the playlist are live tracks.
These are the top 10 least danceable songs:
“Eternal” is the least danceable song with vocals. If we’re not counting “One Caress” as a single, the least danceable single is "Somebody” at 24. (Fun fact: The album version of “Enjoy the Silence” comes right before this on 23.)
These are the top 10 most danceable songs:
It’s very interesting to see almost only songs from the first two albums on here. If we exclude “Speak & Spell” and “A Broken Frame”, the top ten would look like this:
These are the top 10 least energetic songs:
These are the top 10 most energetic songs:
Valence“Valence: Describes the musical positiveness conveyed by a track. Tracks with high valence sound more positive (e.g. happy, cheerful, euphoric), while tracks with low valence sound more negative (e.g. sad, depressed, angry).” – Someone on the Internet.
These are the top ten least valent songs:
If we go looking for the single with the least valence, we find the album version of “In Your Room” on 23 but that doesn’t count, of course. So, the single with the least valence is “Little 15” on 25, followed by “Cover Me” on 27.
These are the top ten songs with the most valence:
The most valent single is “Dreaming of Me”. The single with the most valence not written by Vince is “The Meaning of Love”. Funnily enough, the next singles with the most valence are “See You” at 13 and “It’s Called a Heart” at 17, which Martin also both hates ;). The single with the most valence while still being liked by Martin is “Precious” at 23, which again has a high-pitched synth riff without vocals.
(Depeche) ModeInterestingly, if we average all the song’s modes, we get a value of 0.541 which means that the songs are slightly more likely to be in major key than a minor key.
If we now exclude “Speak & Spell”, this value comes down to 0.528.
If we then also exclude “A Broken Frame”, we’re left with 0.519.
All in all, it seems like Martin uses more major keys than he likes to admit ;)
Just know, that I’m not very trained when it comes to music theory and I know Martin uses a lot of borrowed chords, which will probably also affect this score.
These are the top five slowest songs:
These are the top five fastest songs:
InstrumentalnessIf we rank all the songs by instrumentalness, the lowest instrumental on the list is “Headstar” at 125 out of 208. The highest non-instrumental on the list is “When the Body Speaks” at 12 out of 208.
Interestingly, there are five songs that got a score of 0.0: “Dressed in Black”, “Condemnation”, “Everything Counts”, “Wrong”, and “I Want You Now”.
Speechiness“This is an estimate of the amount of spoken word in a particular track. High values indicate that there’s a good deal of speech in the track, and low values indicate that there is very little speech.” – Again someone on the Internet.
These are the top five song with the lowest speechiness score:
These are the top 5 songs with the highest speechiness score:
Track PairingsFor the following analyses I used a vector comprising the values for danceability, energy, and valence for each track. Since the playlist contains 209 songs, we’ve got (209^2 – 209) / 2 = 21736 pairings to check. I compared the two vectors for each pairing using different vector similarity measures (Reference) to get a similarity score.
Most similar pairings
These are the top 20 most similar pairings (using TS-SS):
If we’re looking for the most similar pairing only including singles, we end up with “Fragile Tension” – “Peace” at 28, “People Are People” – “Martyr” at 29, “Enjoy the Silence” – “Lillian” at 48, and “A Question of Lust” – “Home” at 49.
Another interesting pairing is "Peace" - "Scum" at 91 ;).
I should also mention that, while “Zenstation” – “Always” is first on this list, all other similarity measures have “In Your Memory” and “It’s Called a Heart” ranked first.
Least similar pairings
This list is less interesting, so here’s only the top 5 (using TS-SS):
The other two measures I used have “Everything Counts (Reprise)” – “Introspectre” and “A Photograph of You” – “Oberkorn (It's a Small Town)” ranked least similar respectively.
Most Typical Depeche Mode TrackNext, I’ve calculated an average vector over danceability, energy, and valence. This vector contains the scores the average Depeche Mode track has. Then I looked for the track that is most similar to this average track to find the most typical Depeche Mode tracks.
Average Track over the entire discography visualised (sort of)

The average Depeche Mode song has these scores (rounded):
The top 10 most similar tracks to this:
The top 10 least similar tracks to this:
The most typical 80s track and single is “Shake the Disease”.
The least typical 80s track is “Stjarna”. The least typical 80s single is “Little 15”.
The most typical 90s track and single is “Home”.
The least typical 90s track and single is “World in My Eyes”.
The most typical 2000s track is “Little Soul”. The most typical 2000s single is “Peace”.
The least typical 2000s track and single is “Precious”.
The most typical 2010s track and single is “Going Backwards”.
The least typical 2000s track is “Soft Touch / Raw Nerve”. The least typical 2010s single is “Cover Me”.
ConclusionThe algorithm calculating the audio features is far from perfect and nothing from here should be taken as fact. This is just a bit of fun with numbers :). Based on this data, you can do lots of other fun stuff like comparing your Spotify listening profile to this and finding out which Depeche Mode track matches your listening habits the best. If you’ve got any other ideas or improvements, please let me know!
