Hold on, groovy and pazzo. The first for the music, the second for the lyrics, the third for both.

I actually really like the music to Groovy, It's bloody good, but yes, the lyrics are pretty atrocious.

I like Pazzo! It's New Order's Tutti Frutti part 2

how Pazzo gets on a most embarrassing song list is beyond me. I dont care for the song myself never listen to it, but IMO its almost impossible for an instrumental to be embarrassing unless there are samples of goats bleating on it or the like...the song is put together well it doesnt convey embarrassing to me on any level. its like some of you are just picking songs you dont like. to me thats not in the spirit of the question. anyways I choose Later tonite. I say its embarrassing because Neil sounds embarrassing on it vocally..like he cant sing...the lyrics are cringeworthy. I mean god forbid anyone was in the car next to me at a stoplight and this came on. "head boy" and all.

Agree re:lyrics. Although the lyrical vibe is classic PSB "going out music", it's embarrassingly self-centric.

However Groovy is placed immediately after Twenty-Something ... so I think there is a message there :)
