The Psychedelic Furs. The 20 Best Songs

The Psychedelic Furs are out on the road celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their second album, Talk Talk Talk. A criminally under-rated band, The Furs remain one of my favorites of all time. Although they frequently tour, they are long overdue for a new album - it's been 20 years since their last studio album, World Outside.

Tonight I've been sitting here with my headphones on, assembling this Best Of List... so many great songs to choose from - and after much deliberation...I think I've finally got it right. I now present to you the 20 Best Songs of The Psychedelic Furs. Click on the title to purchase a song - or scroll down to the bottom for a Spotify playlist. Please enjoy.
