"Happiness Is An Option", anyone?
On my first date with my now wife, she said (about her previous relationship) “I was just not happy” as we were getting back into my car after dinner somewhere. I played “Happiness is an option” on the CD player. She liked it and went on to buy us tickets to the “Nightlife tour. We’re still a happy couple now, 20 years later..! So that song has a special place for me..!
More strobes and BANGING, please!

Curious, Metamorphosis and Electricity still haven't gotten any votes. I thought they were popular picks in polls like this.

Surprised I'm the only one who voted New York City boy.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

That one is full of clunkers and Winner is a tough act to follow.

I voted for Electricity, it’s doo doo. New York City Boy not far behind, cringe cringe. Happiness is an Option is terrible.

The Only One is beautiful, I love it.
Did someone say We All Feel Better in the Dark? Their greatest B- side EVER! Gotta love the diverse tastes here.

wow! fab story.

HIAO is dreadful though..much like half of Nightlife.

Yes was another albums with clunkers..songs like Beautiful People, Vulnerable, Legacy are so :roll:

Thankfully from Elysium..they got their output right
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

Of those listed it would have to be "The Night I Fell In Love" but "Ego Music" or "Your Early Stuff" off Elysium are probably worse.

Happiness is an option
Footsteps is the most underwritten bland piece they've ever written, That and the only one.
Night before I fell in love - it's a great tune but the lyrics! My god.

Meanwhile Give Stupidity a Chance is unlistenable

‘Hold On’, ‘Winner’ and ‘Silver Age’ are pretty cringeworthy.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.
