Should I wear pink or purple?...

As a small tribute US electronica/shoegaze band Purplespace has recorded two really nice versions of The Psychedelic Furs classic Pretty in Pink. At first the two versions sounded very much alike, but after a few listen it became pretty clear that the first one takes a shoegaze approach, while the second one is a bit more electronica inspired (especially in the opening seconds it's rather easy to spot the difference). The National has also recorded a really fine version of the song, which can be found here. Finally I think I should add that the soundtrack for the movie named after the song remains one of the best ever.
