35 years ago, when these British wierdos appeared on MTV, I didn't know what to think of them. I am referring to lots of other "post-punk" British bands too, with their weird accents and moves in the videos - they all seemed to want to be David Bowie, who was, face it, a wierdo back when these guys were in diapers.

I looked up other songs by the Psychedelic Furs but neither recognized nor particularly liked a single one. However, this one, The Ghost in You, from the album Mirror Moves, brings back some faint, hazy memories, which go with the ethereal sound of the song.

The band members playing during the recording of Mirror Moves, in 1984 were the two Butler brothers, Richard the vocalist and Tim on bass guitar, along with John Ashton on guitar, and Keith Forsey on drums.

Well, it's this or hedonics, so ...?
