Mirror Moves, the band's fourth album, was released in 1984 and peaked at number 15 in the UK and number 43 in the US. It included the charting singles "Heaven", "The Ghost in You", and "Heartbeat". In 1986, the band re-recorded "Pretty in Pink" for the soundtrack to the film of the same name, leaving them poised for their highest-profile release, 1987's Midnight to Midnight, which peaked at number 12 in the UK and number 29 in the US, thus becoming the highest-charting album of the band's career. This was followed the next year with the band's first "hits" compilation, All of This and Nothing, and the single "All That Money Wants".
The Furs released two more studio albums: Book of Days in 1989, and World Outside in 1991, then quietly went on hiatus while singer Richard Butler began work on a solo project which evolved into the band Love Spit Love. The Psychedelic Furs reformed in 2000 and have continued to tour and perform ever since. In 2001, they released Beautiful Chaos: Greatest Hits Live, which also featured one new studio recording, "Alive (For Once in My Lifetime)", as well as a DVD version of the performance, titled Live from the House of Blues.
