    Who remembers the Psychedelic Furs and what did you think of them? For those too old or too young or whose focus was elsewhere, their time was the early to mid 1980s and their enduring song seems to be Pretty in Pink, heard in the movie of the same name and in a current cell phone commercial. They later became a MTV band with a couple popular songs on later albums but I liked the band best at the beginning.

    I'm asking because I've gotten into some kind of mid-life re-obsession with them. The first time I saw them (1980-1981) was the best show I ever saw but, when I saw them again a couple years later, they were kind of stilted. I've been listening to their first two albums (CDs) a lot lately and am thinking the Furs hold up amazingly well. I guess I shouldn't be thinking about this because I'm in school again and trying to finish off a couple term papers. So 25-year old music is just a distraction from what I'm supposed to be doing.

    Love the furs! The restaurant that I work at plays them every night during bar hours. I always hang just to listen to them.

    PM me for more details. You'll never listen to them again, trust me.

    Nope; wherever that's heading is a place I don't want to go.
