A little something about Psychedelic Furs
The Psychedelic Furs formed in London in the late '70s and broke up in the early '90s producing seven studio albums and numerous collections in the duration. Typically their music was trippy, articulate grooves punctuated with seering guitars and whirling effects or synthesizers. In front of this ethereal mix were the detached poetic musings of a scratchy-throated baritone lead singer. Keep in mind, stateside in the early '80s, a band like the Furs could be heard only on radio stations experimenting with 'new wave' programming. The Furs certainly stood out from the rest of the radio-friendly pop acts such as Toni Basil, Soft Cell, Nena and Thompson Twins. Their sound was unique and engaging then and still is today.

Pretty in Pink
Caroline laughs andIt's raining all dayShe loves to be one of the girlsShe lives in the placeIn the side of our lovesWhere nothing isEver put straightShe turns herself roundAnd she smiles and she says'This is it''That's the end of the joke'And loses herselfIn her dreaming and sleepAnd her lovers walkThrough in their coatsPretty in pinkIsn't shePretty in pinkIsn't sheAll of her loversAll talk of her notesAnd the flowersThat they never sentAnd wasn't she easyAnd isn't shePretty in pinkThe one who insistsHe was first in the lineIs the last toRemember her nameHe's walking aroundIn this dressThat she woreShe is goneBut the joke's the samePretty in pinkIsn't shePretty in pinkIsn't sheCaroline talks to youSoftly sometimesShe says'I love you' and'Too much'She doesn't have anythingYou want to stealWellNothing you can touchShe wavesShe buttons your shirtThe trafficIs waiting outsideShe hands you this coatShe gives you her clothesThese cars collidePretty in pinkIsn't shePretty in pinkIsn't she
Love My Way There's an army On the dance floor It's a fashion With a gun my love In a room Without a door A kiss is not enough In Love my way It's a new road I follow where My mind goes They'd put us On a railroad They'd dearly Make us pay For laughing In their faces And making it our way There's emptiness Behind their eyes There's dust In all their hearts They just want to Steal us all And take us all apart But not in Love my way It's a new road I follow where My mind goes So swallow All your tears my love And put on Your new face You can never win or lose If you don't Run the race
Ghost in you A man in my shoes runs a light All the papers lie tonight but falling over you is the news of the day Angels fall like rain and love , is all of heaven way inside you the time moves and she don't fade the ghost in you she don't fade away The race is on, IM on your side but hearing you my engines died I'm in the mood for you or for running away All the stars come down in you but love, love, love you cant give it away inside you the time moves and she don't fade the ghost in you she don't fade inside you the time moves and she don't fade away don't you know she don't fade don't you go it makes no sense and all these talking superman just take away the time just to get it away aint it just like the rain cause love,love,love,love is only heaven away inside you the time moves and she don't fade the ghost in you she don't fade away inside you the time moves and she don't fade away the ghost in you she don't fade A man in my shoes runs a light but all the papers lie tonight falling over you is the news of the day and love will not fade away and love love love will not fade away
