An 80s Favorite: Love My Way

A while back, I promised to write a few posts about my favorite things from the 1980s...because, if you've read Other Words for Love, you know it's set between 1985 and 1989. (Oh, and that painting over there? That's called "Diamond Dust Shoes," and it was created by Andy Warhol in 1980. I like that, too...so I thought I'd just throw it in).

I’ve written two of my "80s Favorites" posts (see here: http://tinyurl.com/4vx46g7 and here: http://tinyurl.com/4b5uba9), and here’s my latest favorite:

Love My Way by the Psychedelic Furs.

This song is on the Other Words for Love playlist, and its sound and lyrics really capture the emotions in the story. If you haven’t heard it before, I suggest you check it out in the video below...it's a great song! I'm a big fan of that haunting, electronic sound that has been so well-executed by several British bands.
