Dior 2013 Commercial – What’s the Song?
Dior has released a mystical commercial for its new fall collection, and it takes place in the lush, enchanting gardens of Versailles. What’s the song in the background of this mysterious clip?
The catchy tune is Depeche Mode’s ‘Behind the Wheel,’ from 1987's ‘Music for the Masses.' The album hit No. 35 on the Billboard 200 chart and was re-released as a CD/DVD combo set in 2006.
“The Depeche Mode of this album is the one that brought together a rabid audience of trendy coastal kids and middle-American teens,” wrote Pitchfork in a 2006 review. “All of whom saw them not only as the peak of style, but as something positively revelatory, something speaking only to them (even in a crowded stadium), something alien and cool, disorientingly kinky, and entrancingly strange. For many, this was probably one of the first dance-pop acts they’d heard that didn’t seem to be entirely about being cool and having a good time.”
‘Behind the Wheel’ landed at No. 21 on the U.K. charts and has been remixed a number of times over the years. In 1989, Spin named it one of the “100 Greatest Singles of All Time.”
