I'm a kid of the music video age, that period squeezed between the vinyl and eight tracks of the 70s and the MP3 files and iPods of the 90s. During my high school and college days, my pop culture world was most heavily influenced by Night Tracks, MTV and VH1.
In celebration of that proud musical heritage I've decided to resurrect a little of that heady time when the whole world seemed to stop for every time a music video by a major artist debuted. I'll be putting some of my favorite forgotten videos here in periodic posts under this same title.
For my first installment I've chosen The Psychedelic Furs, a pop punk band from England made famous in the States by its title song for the movie "Pretty in Pink."
I rediscovered the band a few years ago when I heard "The Ghost in You" while listening to the on board music during a flight to Germany.
As soon as I got home I bought the band's greatest hits CD. Here are a couple more of my favorites from that disc.
"Love My Way"
Looks like the band is touring again and stopping on the Left Coast in July, including a date in San Diego.
