The Psychedelic Furs – Pretty in Pink

Caroline laughs and
It’s raining all day
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place
In the side of our lives
Where nothing is
Ever put straight
She turns herself round
And she smiles and she says
‘This is it’

‘That’s the end of the joke’
And loses herself
In her dreaming and sleep
And her lovers walk
Through in their coats

Pretty in pink
Isn’t she?
Pretty in pink
Isn’t she?

All of her lovers
All talk of her notes
And the flowers
That they never sent
And wasn’t she easy
And isn’t she
Pretty in pink
The one who insists
He was first in the line
Is the last to
Remember her name
He’s walking around
In this dress
That she wore
She is gone
But the joke’s the same

Pretty in pink
Isn’t she?
Pretty in pink
Isn’t she?

Caroline talks to you
Softly sometimes
She says
‘I love you’ and
‘Too much’
She doesn’t have anything
You want to steal
Nothing you can touch
She waves
She buttons your shirt
The traffic
Is waiting outside
She hands you this coat
She gives you her clothes
These cars collide

Pretty in pink
Isn’t she?
Pretty in pink
Isn’t she?

The Psychedelic Furs – Discography

Despite the dumb name, we do like this crowd.
Below you’ll find various Furs albums and versions thereof (remastered), as well as a greatest hits package.

The Furs came together in England’s emerging punk scene in 1977, where they were initially called “RKO,” then “Radio.” They then vacillated between calling themselves “The Psychedelic Furs” and “The Europeans”, playing gigs under both names before permanently settling on the former name.

The band initially consisted of Richard Butler (vocals) (initially using the name Butler Rep), Tim Butler (bass guitar), Duncan Kilburn (saxophone), Paul Wilson (drums)[and Roger Morris (guitars). By 1979, this line up had expanded to a sextet with Vince Ely replacing Wilson on drums and John Ashton being added on guitar.

They are best known for their massive hit “Pretty in Pink”.

In 1986, the band re-recorded a version of “Pretty in Pink” for the soundtrack of the film of the same name. Released as a single, it became their biggest hit to that time in the US, and their biggest-ever UK hit.

From 1988 on, The Furs’ were no longer seen on the Hot 100 pop charts in the US, and only sporadically made the lower rungs of the UK pop charts. However, their chart success continued with three #1 hits on the US Modern Rock chart between 1988 and 1991.

The band split in the early 1990s, with the Butler brothers going on to found Love Spit Love.

After spending most of the decade apart, Butler, Butler and Ashton re-formed The Psychedelic Furs in 2000, and released a live album Beautiful Chaos: Greatest Hits Live, which also featured a new studio recording, “Alive (For Once In My Lifetime).”

Since then the Furs continue to tour the world along with former Love Spit Love drummer Frank Ferrer, ex-Information Society and World Party keyboardist Amanda Kramer and saxophonist Mars Williams who returned to the band after a stint in the late 1980s.
