Sorry to intervene gm_gm - you were writing to IBS and this may be a coded message for him - but Bowie's song was released about 12 years after the Furs put out "Pretty in Pink" so hard to understand how they could have aped him.

I have to say I have an interest in PiP since a pal of mine co-wrote the song and has earned a fair bit in royalties some of which he has generously shared over the years in drinks and meals.

I may be biased but I do think it's a better song than Jump but I agree there are similarities.

Gm, Gm I agree with CT, Psychedelic Furs seemed to have influenced Bowie on this one.
