* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: 'Don't go' has vague lyrical similarities to 'Nodisco' from Depeche Mode's debut album, which was from when Vince was a part of the band.


* BreakupBreakout: Both of them. Vince went on to form the successful Music/{{Erasure}} with Andy Bell, and Alison's solo records have all charted in the UK Top 30.

Added DiffLines:

* MarketBasedTitle: The band was known as Yaz in the U.S. due to a lawsuit from a band with a similar name.

* ShortLivedBigImpact



* TechnologyMarchesOn: "Bad Connection" - the narrator can't get in touch with her lover because the phone lines are down. What really puts it in a bygone age is the suggestion that she "ought to write a letter instead".
* ThrowItIn: "In My Room" has some random StudioChatter at the end.

Added DiffLines:

* SpokenWordInMusic: "I Before E Except After C"


* OneSceneWonder: Alison's mum puts in a memorable appearance on "I Before E Except After C". They have her reading what sounds like the instructions for some of their studio equipment and she clearly has no idea what it's all about. And then she does that brilliant "I'm allllll... riiiight" and a laugh at the end.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSeventies: the subject of a massive TakeThat in "Goodbye 70s".


* RhymingWithItself: "Unmarked" rhymes "on our side" with "the other side".



* ThrowItIn: "In My Room" has some random studio chatter at the end.
