Simple Minds' "Don't You (Forget About Me)" - Chromatik's Tune of the Day

Three artists rejected “Don’t You” before producer Keith Forsey finally asked Scottish new wavers, Simple Minds, to record it. Considering how well the song matched its scene in the Breakfast Club, and how naturally vocalist Jim Kerr sings his lines, that the band didn’t write this song on their own comes as a surprise. Regardless of the backstory, this song is as 80s as you can get without resorting to leg warmers and hair metal guitar solos, so make sure to learn this song to play at your next 80s-themed party.
