Most "beautiful" Erasure songs?

Post by mrblue » Fri May 17, 2019 3:07 pm

I was working at my computer last night and decided to listen to Wonderland and mixes from the album. I got to My Heart...So Blue (Incidental) (an instrumental version for anyone who may not know) and even though I've heard it a million times, it hit me again just how beautiful a track it is. I'd have to say it's one of Erasure's most beautiful. So this is just a public service announcement to give it another listen soon when you have a few quiet minutes to yourself ;)

What would you say are Erasure's most beautiful songs?

I’m sure Always has to figure in this list,but 91 Steps is also a beautiful track (both versions)


From Wonderland to the World Beyond

I'd put "Let's Take One More Rocket to the Moon" on the list. The way that Vince's backing track builds as the song approaches the chorus is the definition of "beautiful" IMO.

Drew, I must have told you this about My Heart...So Blue (Incidental). Right? No?!! You mean you independently came to the same conclusion???

I think we have the beginning of a consensus. :P

Agreed, that it's near the top of my list along with She Won't Be Home. I can't be the only one who dreams of a mashup of the two; can I?
