  1. Nothing less than 1/4 of this compilation was made with tracks of “Other People’s Songs”. Is it really essential or just eccentric? I’m not sure if I’m eccentric enough to buy this one…

  3. Hey, I Love Saturday is so essential as their most popular singles in my opinion! I just cannot understand why 4 tracks from OPS, a good covers album, but not that good…

  4. @Chabacano: It’s probably because the kind of shops this will be in is the kind of shops that older people will be going into; people who haven’t necessarily heard of most Erasure stuff. They will pick it up and recognize the obvious Erasure songs, and then see other songs that they recognize, and then buy it becuase it is full of recognizable music.
