Simple Minds

I was a huge Simple Minds fan back in the 80's. Saw them in 1989 or whenever it was that they toured Australia. Fabulous show although I was crushed as everyone else in GA was a 7 foot Celtic soccer player.

Last year I started to get back into Simple Minds again. Catching up a bit, and replacing some of my old vinyls with CD's, finally.

I'm serious looking forward to the new album. Simple Minds closed their website yesterday to revamp for the new album. Waiting.... waiting.... waiting.....

Any other Simple Minds fans here? What is your favourite song? What is your favourite song from the 1990's that I may have missed?

Oh my gawd, please tell me you are 16 years old?

Back in the dark ages, probably before you were born, Simple Minds and U2 were equals, contemporaries. Simple Minds are from Scotland, and are very very good. Simple Minds were famous for the "big stadium sound" before U2. (actually City of Blinding Lights reminds me a lot of Simple Minds)

My favourites:

* Someone, Somewhere in Summertime
* Belfast Child
* Big Sleep
* Love Song
* See the Lights

I haven't listened to them in ages. Just threw a couple in my CD player so I can refresh my memory. Now playing: The American (previous song was: Love Song)

and I did seem them sometime in the mid 80s - I think it was at the Palladium in Hollywood. Had to be around the time of "Don't You Forget About Me", and I can't remember if it was post Chrissie Hynde period or not... My memory is a little foggy on that one

loll. Fair enough. But if the person is old enough to remember the Breakfast Club they would be old enough to remember Simple Minds big hits, not that song. Or is that the Simple Minds biggest hit in the USA? Please say no.
