At their best PSB are sublime. However, there are big chunks of their career that make me proud to be an Erasure fan. I couldn't limit myself to only three songs. Just for starters:
1. The whole Liza Minelli project
2. All of the "Closer to Heaven" musical
3. If Love Were All
4. The night I fell in love
3. Give it a go
4. Hold on
5. New York City boy
6. Boy strange
And that's just the top of the cringeworthy, roll-up the car windows list. It seems after very early on in their career for every "Electric" there's a "Results."
The whole Liza project?? Seriously?
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I’m not particularly embarrassed about any of their work.

There are some songs I don’t like and some that are naff but none embarrassing. But then I LOVE New York City Boy, Go West and the WHOLE Liza album 🤗
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

Not even 'The Night I fell in Love'? You have a very high tolerance level, kudos to you.

"The only one"
"If love were all"
"Twenty-something"
"Ego music" sometimes

"The night I fell in love" always seemed funny to me, maybe because I'm non-English speaker and all the levels of its awkwardness are not accessible to me. The music has a nostalgic feel at least.

Go West. Just Go West. Even back in 1993 when they were reaching chart heights they’d never reach again I was thinking “this is it”, I feel embarrassed that my favourite band have done this.

Mings gone west second movement is good though.
is is and isnt isnt

The night I fell in love is the crowning turd in the sewer pipe.

You might want to trademark that comment, it could end up in the lyrics of their next song.

I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing
Tracks 6-12 on Nightlife
Give It a Go
Everything Means Something
Love Is a Bourgeois Construct
Groovy
Pazzo
Burn

What keeps Mankind Alive
Shameless
Losing my Mind

But surprisingly i quite like Winner

Although I agree with one Nightlife track: The Only One.

I love give it a go. In my top 3 off Elysium
I like shameless in its extended cast form
I don’t care for groovy, burn, Piazzo and love is a catastrophe

Surely though .... apart from Winner... the turd is Happiness

Utter trite rubbish. Thankfully easily deleted from history on my iPod. Still trying to erase its existence from my memory

the most embarrassing PSB song is... half of Elysium.

the least embarrassing PSB song is... the other half of Elysium.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

God I forgot about Happiness. Absolute dog excrement and easily their worst album opener.
