sorry to trash, but if you listen to the instrumental version of BREATHING SPACE, it will become everyone's instant favourite ! such a lovely tune!!! and the production!!! amazing song!
Neil Tennant has a great voice, Chris Lowe has great silence.

1 Requiem (the instrumental's also very good but Neil's vocals add some extra spark...)
2 Leaving
3 Give it a go (straight out of REM's "Green")
4 A face like that
5 Ego music (hilarious)

Instrumentals:

1 Everything means something
2 Ego music (shades of Disco Potential, obviously miles better)
3 Leaving
4 A face like that (AMAZING instrumental)
5 Invisible (lots of differents melodies and tunes underneath the vocals...)

This is such an amazingly good album that it's really hard to pick just 5 songs, but after some more listens I'd like to replace Invisible with Give it a go (this is already a classic for me, as non-PSB-sounding it may be) and Hold on with Everything means something (another song that really doesn't sound like the PSB we may be used to) from my first list, making this my new selection:

Leaving
Breathing space
Ego music
Give it a go
Everything means something
