Depeche Mode’s iconic song “People Are People” released in 1984, remains a poignant anthem addressing the theme of human equality and the futility of prejudice.
The lyrics underscore the absurdity of discrimination, advocating for tolerance and understanding. The track gained widespread attention for its catchy melody and thought-provoking message, becoming a symbol against social intolerance.
Its release came during a period marked by global socio-political tensions, resonating with audiences seeking to challenge societal prejudices. “People Are People” not only contributed to Depeche Mode’s rise to fame but also established the band as vocal proponents of social change through their music.
Decades after its release, the song’s relevance persists as a timeless call for acceptance and unity.
Here’s my take on this anthem. Hope you like it as much as I did creating it.
