Simple Minds: Don’t You (Forget About Me)
Written and composed by Keith Forsey and Steve Schiff, it was released in 1985 and performed by the band Simple Minds, British, from Scotland, almost only by chance, after Cy Curnin, Bryan Ferry and Billy Idol declined to record the song. SImple Minds also turned down the chance, but eventually quickly recorded it in a North London studio.
The lucky association with the successful film The Breakfast Club, being played during the opening and closing credits, launched the single to great heights, hitting the top position in the US and lasting years in the top positions in the UK.
