Simple Minds Don't You (Forget About Me)

Recommended Posts

This was featured in the 1985 movie The Breakfast Club. Directed by John Hughes, it featured many members of the "Brat Pack," including Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, and Judd Nelson. This was written by Steve Chiff along with Keith Forsey, who also wrote "Shakedown" for Beverly Hills Cop II and the title song to Flashdance... What a Feeling. This was originally offered to Billy Idol and then to Bryan Ferry (from Roxy Music) to perform, but both declined. Forsey was a big fan of Simple Minds, so he tried to get them to perform the song, which they did at the insistence of their record company. From Songfacts

Saw them live in 1984... I thought they were crap... but that's just my opinion. I hated paying a whole £6 to hear anyone sing off key.

They were crap; but...they were better than alot of crap; that is how bad the music was then. They had a couple good cuts

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
