Song of the Day: 'Pretty in Pink' by the Dresden Dolls

Here's a fun gender-flipped cover of one of the best-known songs by the Psychedelic Furs, which oddly bombed in the U.K. and U.S. the first time it was released, but made No. 18  in the U.K. -- their biggest hit there -- and narrowly missed the U.S. Top 40 when it was re-recorded for the John Hughes film of the same name.

Fun fact: "Pretty and Pink" and "Love My Way" have to be considered the band's two biggest songs, yet their only Top 40 hit in the U.S. was "Heartbreak Beat," which hit No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1987.
