Enjoy the Silence

"Enjoy the Silence" is a song by English electronic music band Depeche Mode. Recorded in 1989, it was released as the second single from their seventh studio album, Violator, on 5 February 1990; the single is Gold certificated in the Germany. The song won Best British Single at the 1991 BRIT Awards. "Enjoy the Silence" was re-released as a single in 2004 for the Depeche Mode remix project Remixes 81–04, was titled "Enjoy the Silence" or, more "Enjoy the Silence 04". Songwriter Martin Gore created a ballad-like first version of the song, which the band took into the studio in 1989. At band member Alan Wilder's insistence, the song was re-worked into the up-tempo version released on the album; the Anton Corbijn-directed music video for "Enjoy the Silence" references the themes and storyline of the philosophical children's book The Little Prince from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Footage of Dave Gahan dressed as a stereotypical king wandering the hillsides of the Scottish Highlands, the coast of Algarve in Portugal and the Swiss Alps with a deck chair is intercut with black-and-white footage of the band posing.

Brief flashes of a single rose appear throughout the scenes. When Corbijn presented the concept of the video to the band, which at the time was "Dave dressed up as a king, walking around with a deck chair", they rejected it, they changed their minds, when he explained that the idea was that the King represented "a man with everything in the world, just looking for a quiet place to sit". Andy Fletcher jokes that he favoured the video because " only had to do about an hour's worth of work"; the video uses a different mix of the album version of the song that has not been released in any audio format. The final long shots of the king walking through the snow are not Gahan but rather the video's producer, Richard Bell. Gahan had left the set, tired of the cold in Switzerland. There are two edited versions of the Corbijn-directed video. One version begins with Andy Fletcher looking towards his right. Shots of Dave Gahan dressed as a king singing directly to the camera are intercut with scenes of his walking through the Scottish Highlands, the coast of Portugal and the Swiss Alps.

The video ends with Gahan singing the last line, "Enjoy the silence" putting his finger in front of his lips as if to quiet the viewer. This video is blocked in Japan, United States; the second version begins with Martin Gore looking to his right. This version omits the shots of Gahan singing directly to the camera. In this version, the only lines Gahan is shown singing are "Words are unnecessary/They can only do harm." The video ends with Gahan sitting on a deck chair in the snow while the last line, "Enjoy the silence", is sung. There are differences in the group shots of the band standing together between the two versions. On 2 December 1989, "Enjoy the Silence" was performed on live by DEPECHE MODE in the German Peter's Pop Show On the 19th December 1989, a promotional single for "Enjoy the Silence" was pressed. In 1990, a promotional video for "Enjoy the Silence" was shot by French TV featuring Depeche Mode lip-synching the song while standing on the observation deck atop the South Tower of the original World Trade Center.

"Enjoy the Silence" was released as a single on 5th February 1990. It was initally released as a 7-inch and 12-inch vinyl single as well as CD single. There are two instrumental B-sides to "Enjoy the Silence". "Sibeling" is a soft piano-tune. The title of "Sibeling" refers to Finnish classical composer Jean Sibelius. According to Martin Gore, "Memphisto is the name of an imaginary film about Elvis as a Devil, that I created in my mind", is a portmanteau of "Memphis" and "Mephisto". Billboard wrote that the song is a "more radio-viable effort" than the group's last hit, "Personal Jesus", they noted further that the track "blends quintet's recognizable techno-pop melodies with trendy house grooves." In a review, Tim Di Gravina wrote that Enjoy the Silence is one of Depeche Mode's "greatest songs" with a "pristine and lush yet punishing musical environment" and "lyrics of violence and darkness". Di Gravina wrote the song is a "love song" as the narrator seems unable to form loving relationships with anyone, demands silence from the world as "words are meaningless and forgettable", clashing into his world.

The act of communication where "words are meaningless and forgettable" causes the narrator so much pain, thus leading him to seek silence and to hide himself away as the only form of happiness he can find. Another reviewer, Stephen Gore, noted the juxtaposition on Violator between "Enjoy the Silence" – where the narrator wants silence from the world as words are "like violence" – and the next song "Policy of Truth", which argues that a successful relationship can only be based on lies. Pitchfork Media included the song at number 15 on their Top 200 Tracks of the 90s. "Enjoy the Silence" was re-released as a single on 18 October 2004 by Depeche Mode for the remix project Remixes 81–04, was entitled "Enjoy the Silence" or, more "Enjoy the Silence 04". The "Reinterpreted" version was remixed by Mike Shinoda, the rapper and producer for the American band Linkin Park, who played most of the instruments.

Coma Berenices (dwarf galaxy)

Coma Berenices or Com is a dwarf spheroidal galaxy situated in the Coma Berenices constellation and discovered in 2006 in data obtained by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The galaxy is located at the distance of about 44 kpc from the Sun and moves away from the Sun with the velocity of about 98 km/s, it is classified as a dwarf spheroidal galaxy meaning that it has an elliptical shape with the half-light radius of about 70 pc. Com is one of the smallest and faintest satellites of the Milky Way—its integrated luminosity is about 3700 times that of the Sun, much lower than the luminosity of the majority of globular clusters. However, its mass is about 1.2 million solar masses, which means that galaxy's mass to light ratio is around 450. A high mass to light ratio implies; the stellar population of Com consists of old stars formed more than 12 billion years ago. The metallicity of these old stars is very low at ≈ −2.53±0.45, which means that they contain 350 times less heavy elements than the Sun.

The stars of Com were among the first stars to form in the Universe and there is no star formation in Com. The measurements have so far failed to detect any neutral hydrogen in it—the upper limit is only 46 solar masses. Coma Dwarf is located near the Sagittarius Stream, made of stars stripped from the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy; this association may indicate that Com is a former satellite of star cluster from that galaxy
