Some Great Videos is the first music video compilation by Depeche Mode, featuring ten music videos directed by Clive Richardson or Peter Care, released in 1985.[1] It coincides with The Singles 81>85.

There are ten videos in the original version, the first video "Just Can't Get Enough", and all videos from "Everything Counts" in 1983 to "It's Called a Heart" in 1985. There's also a bonus live video of "Photographic".

To coincide with the rerelease of The Singles 81>85, "Some Great Videos" was re-released as "Some Great Videos 81>85". The tracklist is the same as the original UK version, but the artwork is all from the rereleased Singles 81>85.

Notes

"You can pretty much lump all the Julian Temple videos ('See You', 'Meaning Of Love', 'Leave In Silence') into one collective disaster."
  • Though "Get the Balance Right" was not directed by Temple, it wasn't included either as it wasn't very well liked by the band as well.
