  • Having succeeded in paying props to Abba on the tribute EP ABBA-ESQUE, Erasure uses their tenth album OTHER PEOPLE'S SONGS to do the same with this mix of songs by both famed and more obscure bands. Vince Clarke remains a wizard behind the keys as his electronic textures help make The Righteous Brothers' "Ebb Tide" a snappy shuffle, Peter Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill" an infectious romp of bubbling beats and the Three Degrees' "When Will I See You Again" burp and chirp. Frontman Andy Bell's flamboyance and soul meld perfectly on the Cockney Rebel nugget "Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)," (first made famous in this country via a Duran Duran cover), and the percolating version of The Ronettes' "Walking In the Rain." Interestingly, the duo avoided sticking strictly with dance and R&B choices and incorporated songs from a variety of other sources, ranging from singer-songwriter Cliff Eberhardt (a shimmering "Goodnight") to a pair of Buddy Holly songs (a delicate "True Love Ways" and a spry "Everyday"). Most appropriate is the closing version of the Buggles' "Video Killed The Radio Star" that finds Erasure firmly taking the synth-pop baton from their predecessors.
