Simple Minds Appreciation Thread

I just rediscovered this amazing band! I used to listen to them as a kid with my older brother and have downloaded a few songs again of late.

Alive and Kicking and Belfast Child are brilliant! Yes...very U2 like and Jim Kerr is very Bonoesque in his vocals but you can feel the Scottish passion in these lads!

Belfast Child is a great song.
They did a Mandel song that was good as well.

I've listened to them for a long time. Saw them many times. Lst time I was them was Massey Hall in Toronto years ago. It was a fabulous show.

Looking forward to seeing them again in Toronto this summer with INXS.

Excellent tune...I was raised on the Breakfast Club, so what can you expect? Also love Alive and Kicking but don't know any other of their songs...

They're still together, AND touring?!?!?!?

Awesome. I hope they come around here.

I LOVE this band. Only saw them once. '85, I think. Great show!

"Once Upon a Time" is a tremendous album.
They are indeed touring , they'll be In Boston in June. Not sure who's in the band at this time.

I didnt know they were still together either! Thats good to see, the band didnt really make the leap from the 80s to 90s like U2 did.

Maddie....what? I couldnt follow that!!
