"Goodnight Lovers"

"Goodnight Lovers" is Depeche Mode's thirty-ninth UK single, released on 11 February 2002. It is the fourth and final single for the album Exciter.

The single did not qualify for the UK Singles Chart because it contained three songs in addition to the single itself, one more than UK singles rules allow. It did however qualify for the Budget Albums Chart and went straight to Number One before falling rapidly, the first Depeche Mode single to reach Number One in an official UK chart.

The B-sides are remixes of "When the Body Speaks", "The Dead of Night", and "Goodnight Lovers".

The single was not released in the USA.
