The Ghost In You

Artist: 
Psychedelic Furs
Date:

We're going with a tribute video here, because I am always lost on the compulsion to make these. I guess the rationale is "I like a song and I like a movie/tv show/etc, so I will go put them together on Youtube and then I will finally assume my rightful place in society." I actually think they're great and I hope people don't stop making them, but I just don't get why people make them. Maybe so that snarky jerks on the Internet like me will point at them?



The Furs

"The Ghost in You" a signature tune by this tremendous 80's band, and I think they've re-united recently. They released a LIVE cd/dvd, too. Richard Butler has such a distinctive voice.

Saw them once at Roseland in NYC. They killed. And when they ripped into "Imitation of Christ", Butler had his arms spread wide open like he was nailed to a cross...a powerful memory.

The Only Problem

The only problem with the Psychedelic Furs is they are one of those bands that "disowns" part of their repertoire. They're usually "too good" to play songs like "Heartbreak Beat" now. Which totally craps on people like me who loves the songs they "disown."
