Simple Minds – Don’t You (Forget About Me) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th May 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

#1(US) 30 years ago today!

“Don’t You (Forget About Me)” is a 1985 song performed by the band Simple Minds. The song is best known for being played during the opening and closing credits of the John Hughes film The Breakfast Club. It was written by producer Keith Forsey and Steve Schiff (guitarist and songwriter from the Nina Hagen band).

Forsey asked Cy Curnin from The Fixx, Bryan Ferry and Billy Idol to record the song, but all three declined; Idol later performed a cover of it on his 2001 compilation album Greatest Hits. Schiff then suggested Forsey ask Simple Minds who, after refusing as well, agreed under the encouragement of their label, A&M. According to one account, the band “rearranged and recorded ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ in three hours in a north London studio and promptly forgot about it.”

Continuing the rock direction recently taken on Sparkle in the Rain but also glancing back at their melodic synthpop past, it caught the band at their commercial peak and, propelled by the success of The Breakfast Club, became a number-one hit in the U.S. and around the world. It is the band’s only number-one hit on the U.S. Top Rock Tracks chart, staying atop for three weeks. While only reaching number seven in the UK, it stayed on the charts from 1985 to 1987, one of the longest time spans for any single in the history of the chart.

The song did not appear on the band’s subsequent album Once Upon a Time but appeared on the 1992 best-of Glittering Prize 81/92. It has since been a fixture of the band’s live sets – with an extended audience participation section during its inclusion on the 2015 tour to promote the band’s Big Music album.

Two versions were created for release. A short version of 4:23 appeared on the single and the original motion picture soundtrack album of The Breakfast Club. A longer version of 6:32 was released on 12″ single. This version contains longer breakdowns and drum fills, a second appearance of the bridge and a longer ending.

John Leland from Spin wrote that “‘Don’t You Forget About Me,’ a romantic and melancholy dance track, therefore cuts ice both in the living room and on the dance floor.”

Molly Ringwald who starred in The Breakfast Club recorded her own version of the song on her 2013 album Except Sometimes.

The 12″ version of “Cloudbusting” was a special remix called “The Organon Re-Mix” in which the verses were downplayed and the main focus was the development of the song’s chorus.

Tina Turner – We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th May 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)” is a 1985 song by Tina Turner. It was featured in the 1985 film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome which starred Turner and Mel Gibson. The song was written by Terry Britten and Graham Lyle.

“We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)” was released on the heels of Turner’s multiplatinum album Private Dancer. The song’s lyrical content is written from the perspective of those being oppressed and not wanting to get their hopes up in yet another “hero” who may or may not save them. The song was released as a 7″ single, and an extended version was released as a 12″ single and on the film’s soundtrack album. In the UK, a shaped picture disc was also released.

In 1986, the song received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song and a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. As songwriters, Lyle and Britten received the 1985 Ivor Novello award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.

Turner was backed by a choral group from King’s House School in Richmond, London. One of the choir members who appeared on the record, Lawrence Dallaglio, became famous in a totally different field as a rugby union star and captain of the England national team.

“We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)” became one of Tina Turner’s biggest worldwide hit singles. The single peaked at #2 on the United States Billboard Hot 100, behind only “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” by John Parr, at #3 in the UK and reached #1 in Canada, Australia, Germany, Poland, Spain and Switzerland.
