Today we reveal the results of Round 4 of our new Slicing Up Eyeballs readers’ poll series, a ranking of all 209 songs recorded and released by synth-rock legends Depeche Mode from the band’s poppy beginnings in 1981 all the way up to the present day.

A quick refresher: We asked readers to vote for up to 25 of their favorite songs recorded by Depeche Mode, choosing from a ballot that listed 209 singles, album tracks, compilation cuts and cover songs. Not included in this poll: Live versions or remixes, which, for this band, probably merit their own separate poll.

RELATED: Playlist of all 209 of Depeche Mode’s songs, ranked — minus 3 that aren’t on Spotify

Based on a total of 91,106 votes — significantly more than our polls of the R.E.M. and The Smiths catalogs, but about 10,000 shy of our survey of The Cure’s oeuvre — the full results are presented below.

As you can see, the No. 1 song topped the list by a comfortable 94-vote margin. Not surprisingly, the Top 10 features nine singles and just one album track. And unlike what occurred in our last poll, of R.E.M.’s output, every single song in Depeche Mode’s considerable catalog received fans’ votes.

As always, thank you all so much for participating.

And now, the results:
