They made fantastically crafted pop songs, heartwrenching ballads and atmospheric, melancholy crossings inbetween. And more often than not; the lyrics were profound and clever. And that voice... Morten Harket's too-good-for-words voice, hitting every note spot on, both live and in the studio.
Here are their 20 best. 20 pop songs that deserve a better fate than they will ever get.
1. Stay On These Roads (1988)
- The best melancholy and atmospheric pop ballad not written by Robert Smith. Ever. A song that tears me apart. Every time I hear it.
2. The Sun Always Shines On T.V. (1985)
