The Furs

The Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way", from their 1982 album Forever Now, is another one of those indelible early 80's tunes that I always go back to. Richard Butler's vocals had that languishing, eery British drawl that gave this song an extra dose of melancholy.

They then followed up Forever Now nicely with 1984's Mirror Moves which boasts "Heaven", "Heartbeat", and "Ghost In You". There were so many great modern rock songs from that era and "Ghost In You" stays amazing. Again, Richard Butler's distinct vocals really carry this tune - classic material here.

All of the Furs best hits are packaged nicely in 1988's compilation "All Of This And Nothing".
