"I Feel Loved" is a song by English electronic group Depeche Mode. It was released in July 2001 as the second single from the album Exciter. In 2002 The song was nominated for two Grammy Awards. One for Best Dance Recording and the Danny Tenaglia Remix for Best Remixed Recording, but lost out to Janet Jackson's "All For You" and to Deep Dish's remix of Dido's "Thank You".

Music video[edit]

There are four versions, one that uses the "Single Version", but with a cold ending, rather than the fading out ending. There are remix videos by Dan-O-Rama, a long version, and a short version. The two remix versions are composed of modified production shots of the original video. The original version wasn't released on a public video until The Best Of: Volume 1 was released in 2006. The other two aren't on a public release. A version using the Danny Tenaglia Radio Edit of the song also exists, but was pulled from the official website and the label's effort to promote it were scrapped.

The original video features Depeche Mode performing in a club. The setting makes for a hot, sweaty ambience. The club is approached by a set of K9 police, with dogs snapping and angry (for what purpose is unclear). The site security only smiles and lets the policemen by. The audience seems unaware of the snapping, snarling dogs - and the dogs slowly give in to a loving temperament, licking those that pay attention to them. This seems to suggest that the club is full of love and affects all who enter.
