city sky comes down like rain
through all the alleys to the sea
i hear footsteps getting louder
drowning in my sleep
painted lies on painted lips
that promise heaven tastes like this
i don't believe that i believed in you
all that money wants

all that money wants
all that money wants

sunday's child will fall through faith
i feel i'm falling out of grace
grey city sky comes down like rain
to drown me in my sleep
people fade and i forget you
i hear footsteps see their faces
but it all means nothing to me now

all that money wants
all that money wants
all that money wants

city sky comes down like rain
through all the alleys to the sea
i hear her footsteps getting louder
i'm drowning in my sleep
painted lies on broken lips
that promise heaven tastes like this
came home pushed and full of pins

sunday's child will fall through faith
i feel i'm falling out of grace
i see the sky comes down like rain
to drown me in my sleep
people fade and i forget you
i hear footsteps icy faces
but it all means nothing to me
all that money wants

all that money wants
all that money wants
all that money wants

The Psychedelic Furs made us feel divine.

Suggest you also watch for the folder called "yobokies".

The song is alright, bit it's not really mellow, is it...?
 

Well it is in the "RP Rock Mix" so why would it be mellow? Just saying :)
I get the Psychedelic Furs confused with the Afghan Wigs.

How is everyone missing The Beatles - Money?  Too obvious?

The perfect song for the first beer at the end of a day most of which was spent getting my balls busted trying (eventually succeeding) to get a small commercial video shoot into the Manhattan penthouse of a  multimillionaire.  To make $400. On a day the sky comes down as rain. WTF is wrong with this picture?

If bill plays pink floyd - money and another like-minded song, someone's getting a donation. 
 

Some of us give money to RP regardless of what they play.

Plus the that friggin bassline. Try just listening to the bassline.

Plus the ability of the song to transform me to some post-modern abstract cosmic utopia. fact.
Show me the money!!1!11!!elf!!!

THE MIX.
I don't know what it is, but something about this tune makes me feel really good.
A great underrated band.
Forever reminds me of how while we used to wait for movies to show in the CU campus' UMC Theater back in the mid-80s, we'd often hear The Psychedelic Furs over the speaker system, and it was always the perfect thing to have going in the background on a hot date

Strange juice flowing in your viscera?  That sounds serious. Take your Obamacare card, if you have one, and get that checked.

Perhaps the best of all of the 80s Pop Combos.
Jesus and Mary Chain, Camper van Beethoven, the Furs - hello my college radio days!!

Turning it up ... {#Bananajam} 
"Verde que te quiero verde" -  Lorca
8>9
so fine - takes me back to a mate's room playing this and fart sounds out of his bedroom window at the passing folks
What a great song!

IMO, there is a worse song!  This acceptable song is a rebound from the sucko-barfo dreck that is "Heartbreak Beat."  But still a shadow of the "wall of sound" that really defines the Furs' best work for me.  
Richard Butler's voice.....

 youtube:Maratus personatus perform its very elaborate, oh-so-adorable mating dance.

Love the Peacock Spider


thank you....:)

What's the complaint? Please be specific, inquiring minds want to know. wtf this song? is not a complaint, it's a brusque and rhetorical question.

Huh?  Are we listening to the same stream?  Mine sounds tops.

I came back from the coffee shop across the street in today's 2015, stepped into my home office and slipped into 1985. We like that. Jesus and Mary Chain, Psych Furs.  Classic '80s tunes. 
 
I see faces, dead people.......could be because they are filming another episode of "Dead People"  outside my house.

gotta love fur!

When I hear that opening riff,

I'm instantly transported back to the 80's.

 

...so much younger and better looking.

Yes, that's not exactly a secret.
It is so cool to sit here in Denver and jam to this tune that trips me back to those times when I sat in Boulder just as high on all this as now.
Love the FURS .. Thanks for playing!
Love this album. {#Sunny}

Everybody in my church loves this song...


“I have serious concerns that this settlement may allow banks to skirt what they owe and sweep past abuses under the rug without determining the full harm borrowers have suffered,” said Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, D.- Md., a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and a vocal critical of the government regulators handling of the mortgage crisis.

 
..i wonder if Lazarus & his church congregation will like this..?..

This song is soooo good it makes us tear off our clothes and dance...  love it...
 
Pure energy from one of Britain's greatest bands.

This song reminds me of a funny/cool memory from the 80s:  I was in London staying with a friend who knew the band, so when they came by the flat we all went out partying at Camden Palais and danced till 3am.  I haven't thought of *that* in a long time!
 

I remember you!

Now it sounds better.  This must have been fixed with a better upload (?) .  It was a lot different 2 years ago.
I was then and am still now too metal to like these guys....
One of those bands I just can't get into, even though people with good musical taste are into them. Like The Smiths.

Love this album — it has a place in my collection of physical CD's that I still own... (so hard to go completely digital)

oh Libby... you loved me and I treated you like a dog. Songs haunt me.

Fine & sweet like a pig cooked in maple syrup like mamma used to make....mmmm

great song from a great album...




Jumped up and started to dance. It was like being back in school...
I have this on cassette, and I still love it.  "Heartbreak Beat" makes me want to turn off the lights, turn up the music, and dance.{#Dancingbanana}

Absolutely. Great album, but the CD version is terribly compressed and digital glarey. 
I don't believe that I believed in you...


so very groovy...




Yeah, we just cranked up the volume... we be dancing...  love it...




Now we be dancing...  love it...

These guys were awesome in concert a few months ago! Richard Butler still has the same great voice and the band was tight. I'm not a huge fan, just know the popular stuff since I grew up in the 80s but glad I went to the show. I'd see them again...

I spent the whole song thinking this sounded like a band called Love Spit Love that i used to have an album or two by.  After my initial shock i looked up Psychedelic Furs and found that most of the members were the same. Quite liked this one.
This sounds like a different version of the song.  It's not the same as the one on my copy of this cd.

Still sounds fur-tastic!  A big 8!
My favorite (although I feel like saying favourite) furs song.

This song is groovy...

Damnit!

I can feel my wallet opening and now the browser's calling up this CD on Amazon. I'm not even touching the keyboard.

Bill, I don't know how you do that but stop it. It's expensive.  {#Surprised}

gave this a 9 ... seems like it deserves higher.. hmmm
Love my furs..pet my furs
Damn it's good to hear the Furs again!
just a great song.
I love brit-pop, dark and sweet. hello from Poland
Funny- I lived through all this and never heard this. Maybe not a deep cut for anyone else, but glad I heard it. Maybe not a lot of range for this band, but they did what they did well.
Great CD :yes:
luv the furs. keep it coming.
i know of two films that were inspired by songs. Sean Penn directed The Indian Runner based on Highway Patrolman by Bruce Springsteen and Richard Butler's lyrics inspired Pretty in Pink. That talent shines through on many many Furs songs it's great to hear this played by someone other than myself.

Never much liked the Furs - not sure why. Maybe something about the singer's voice? It's not a bad voice (a little like Morrissey, now that I think of it), and he uses it well, but it just doesn't work for me.
A little like Morrissey. That gets a big HUH from me. I remember when I first heard Mirror Moves I think, the Ghost in you*, was the track, that he sounded like Bowie....with a slightly worse cigarette addiction. -Adrian (* I loved that song at the time )
RP is a time machine, wow.
Classic band.
Big 'Ol' Skool' Furs fan here. Good track. And Guiguy- Big ups on the SM New Gold Dream! Amazing album. Yes I said Album
Good furs.
