In 1990, a promotional video for “Enjoy the Silence” was shot by French TV (for the TV Show “Champs-Élysées” with Michel Drucker) with Depeche Mode lip-syncing the song while standing atop the World Trade Center at the WTC rooftop World observatory.

In the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, in which the towers were destroyed, this video gained special significance among New Yorkers and others as, now, functioning as an elegant tribute to the victims.

  1. Yeah right . What about the third tower . Okay , it went down in sympathy with it's cousins . Yeah , but it was mill
    minding it's own business , dig ? Yeah , but it got the vibe , dig ? Okay . Sort of . . .. ….

  2. This time of the year sincerely saddens me. I lived in Jersey facing NYC, and I saw the WTC built, and every other day I would ride my bike weather permitting of course to watch the progress of the construction of these iconic towers 4 yrs I watched it on and off this massive construction..and in less then an hour they came down like crippled humble giants…not to mentioned the lives destroyed, and that is another huge chapter all in itself….Rest in Eternal peace all who died on that day, and comfort to all those families that have to relive this horrible day year after year…

  3. Considering the historic value of this footage, it's a shame it happened to have been shot on a smoggy day instead of a clear one.
