This romantic Pop tune finds Bowie singing of a smitten lad. "Who'd have ever dreamed," he marvels wistfully, "that a smalltown girl like you would be the boss of me?" Producer Tony Visconti told Rolling Stone: "That is one of the slower, funky ones. It's really solid. There's a little Young Americans in there. But that's really not proper... It's a new kind of direction for him, melodically. Doesn't sound like typical Bowie, that track. But it's a very good track."
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
