I'm a bit surprised no one voted for Inside.

No votes for In Bits? I'm voting for In Bits then.

Most embarrassing single cover? Before peni for the win.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

Well, after the Bilingual remaster then definitely not Metamorphosis - it's amazing, although perhaps not cool!

Footsteps is abysmal, as is the Only One
Shouting in the evening

We're talking about embarrassing, not dislikes. Do you find those songs embarrassing or just bad?

Most of them I find embarrassing. I'll re-edit my post.

Given that PSB have been a fanbase-only act with little to no mainstream exposure for over a decade now, I can't say that I see any recent PSB releases as embarrassing. No one sees or hears any of it aside from us, so what's to be embarrassed of? ;)

Now back in the day when I was ultra concerned with PSB's mainstream fortunes, that's another story.

New York City Boy is probably the one that jumps out the most to me. It's not that I hated it, ok maybe I did, but I was also embarrassed by it and the video as well. I remember Neil being a guest on Loveline and going into and out of commercials they played short clips of the New York city boy video! I was cringing with embarrassment that their first American media exposure in nearly a decade was this!! LOL

The only other that jumps out at me is Absolutely fabulous, the song and the video. That was probably more embarrassing than New York city boy but since it never got a release of any kind in the US, I never had to fear that anyone would hear it.

I'd erased that from my memory. Let's pretend it never happened.

I don't think it's embarrassing but it's clearly not a single worth remembering.

Embarassing lyrics. You simply don't choose when to fall in love. Happiness is not an option.
