* EndlessWinter: The music video for "Always" features a {{Kabuki}} style demon who was intent on creating an eternal winter. Andy Bell portrays the nature god who defeats him.

* CoverVersion: ''Other People's Songs'' is a whole album full, as is {{ABBA}}-esque.

* EpicRocking: The SelfTitledAlbum brings us two examples, "Sono Luminus"(7:52), and "Rock Me Gently"(10:01). The single mix for the latter, however, shaves six minutes off of the song length.

* NamesTheSame: There was an Andy Bell in {{Oasis}}; also a source of conflict when "A Little Respect" was written--Vince thought it would get confused with the Aretha Franklin classic "Respect".

In 1985, keyboardist Vince Clarke, having parted ways with DepecheMode and {{Yazoo}} singer Alison Moyet, took an ad out in ''Melody Maker'' magazine looking for a new singer to work with. Some 40 respondents showed up at the recording session, each performing two songs Clarke had written for the session. The second-to-last audition of the session was a shy young butcher named Andy Bell. As soon as Andy famously burst into falsetto on the chorus of "Who Needs Love Like That?", Vince knew he had found what he was looking for. They released the track almost immediately, and Erasure was born.

* AlwaysSecondBest: Although completely overshadowed by Andy Bell and Alison Moyet, Vince is a pretty good singer himself. He initially handled lead vocals for DepecheMode, before he recruited Dave Gahan. He also sang one song, "Happy People", while with Yazoo.
** The band itself was generally loathed by the British music press, who characterised them as the poor man's PetShopBoys.

** Actually, Erasure takes the trope and milks it for all its worth. ''Oh L'Amour'' must be one of the most cheerful songs about... how much [[UnrequitedLove Unrequited]] LoveHurts.
