The Psychedelic Furs – Pretty In Pink (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

R E Q U E S T

“Pretty In Pink” is a song by the English rock band The Psychedelic Furs, originally released in 1981 as a single from the band’s second album, Talk Talk Talk. The song inspired the 1986 film of the same name and a re-recorded version of the song was included on the film’s soundtrack.

The original version of “Pretty in Pink” peaked at number 43 on the UK Singles Chart in July 1981. Allmusic writer Bill Janovitz credits producer Steve Lillywhite for finding “the ideal sound for the band, with a perfect blend of classic pop, punk, and art rock elements”. Janovitz called it “the definitive take” of the song.

The 1986 version reached number 18 in the UK and number 41 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 chart. Janovitz described this version as “ho-hum, streamlined, (and) radio-ready”.
