No Angels version[edit]

In 2002, "All Cried Out" was re-recorded in two versions by German pop band No Angels. While a re-worked version with a contemporary pop edge was included on the re-release edition of the group's second album Now ... Us! (2002), a re-arranged big band-played version was released on the band's first swing album, When the Angels Swing (2002).

Produced by Perky Park and Nik Hafemann respectively, both versions were released on a single CD single on December 2, 2002 (see 2002 in music) in German-speaking Europe. The song was moderately successful on the charts, with peak positions of number 18 in Germany, number 23 Austria, and number 59 in Switzerland, making it one of the lower-charting singles of the band.
