See The Lights


In my world, there is no better song than that.

I only know a select few songs from Simple Minds. Definitely remember hearing "Don't You Forget About Me" when I was younger. That's about the only song almost everyone I've come across knows by them here in the U.S. As pointed out, they did have a few other songs make the charts, yeah, but I haven't met too many people who know any of their other ones, it's just "Don't You Forget About Me" that they know. And for the longest time, that was the only song I knew by them, too.

But thanks to new wave channels/radio stations, and VH1 Classic, I got introduced to some of Simple Minds' other songs, like "Alive And Kicking" and "Someone Somewhere In Summertime" and "All The Things She Said" and "Up On The Catwalk" and stuff like that. They're not bad songs at all. I like the piano solo in "Alive And Kicking" .

Also, am I crazy, or does Jim Kerr remind anyone else of Martin Short? Every time I see him, that's who comes to mind .

Hey Beli,

I'm on the SM board as well.

Love the group. I had an intense obsession with them, epspecially when I was in my late teens (in the mid 90's).

New Gold Dream is one of my favourite albums of all time, and the title track drives me wild!

Hypnotised is my fave 90's SM song.


Have you seen the double dvd release which includes Verona? Great stuff!

I just ordered it. Literally, just then. I was also trying to find Cry. But its not on sanity.com.au. Have you bought it? If so, where, please?

Are you Ravenette at the other place? or a different username?

I'm "ravengirl" on the SM board. I don't post there a lot though. (About once a month!)

I haven't got Cry, I've only got their albums up to Good News from the Next World.

Have you tried HMV Beli? They would definitely be able to order it in, no probs!

Jealous to those of you who get to see the Minds this year, their new album is getting positive write-ups and the live act is always good, of course.

For the record, fav Minds albums:

1. Sparkle in the Rain (1984)
2. Street Fighting Years (1989)
3. New Gold Dream (1983)

Favorite Songs

1. See The Lights
2. Up On The Catwalk
3. Street Fighting Years
4. Soul Crying Out
5. Someone Somewhere In Summertime
6. I Travel
7. Theme for Great Cities
8. East at Easter
9. Speed Your Love to Me
10. Banging On The Door
11. New Gold Dream
12. Hypnotized

Plenty of others that really should have a spot, too...

I would be going if they were coming back to the U.S. I was lucky enough to catch them a couple times the last time they came here in 2002. Got to meet Jim and Charlie also then. Really nice down to earth guys. Sadly, I dont think we will see them in N. America any time soon.

One of my other favorite bands though.

(Although actually being a Belfast child towards the end of the troubles official, i.e. late eighties/ early nineties, who'd ever have thought the song would rile me up so much.)

Other than that one song I thoroughly condone Simple Minds and their various albums.
