composers
Music And Lyrics: Keith Forsey and Steve Schiff

background
Whilst writing the score for John Hughes’ latest (and in retrospect best) brat-pack film The Breakfast Club, Keith Forsey and Steve Schiff penned Don’t You (Forget About Me), intended for the film's opening credits. Recording a rough demo, Forsey wanted it recorded by an established band and started to hawk both the tape, and himself, around the record companies of bands he admired and felt could suitably record it and add gravitas to the soundtrack.

Which is why Simple Minds found him in their dressing room after one of the Tour De Monde gigs in America, clutching a collection of Simple Minds bootlegs, and enthusing about this great song he’d written. (After hearing the song A&M invited him backstage but neglected to tell Simple Minds anything about it.) Bemused, and no doubt amused by the episode, they declined.

Bryan Ferry also declined. As did Billy Idol, who Forsey was successfully producing at the time.

Forsey was not one to give up and flew to the UK to persuade Simple Minds again to record the track. He found them in London, working on the demos for Once Upon A Time. With Forsey on their backs, and A&M on their backs, the band relented, thinking the song was just another incidental track to a forgettable brat-pack movie. They booked a studio in Wembley, and nailed the song in three hours. One of the caveats was they could play with the arrangement, and Jim added the “la la las” on the day.

The band carried on with Once Upon A Time and completely forgot about the song.

"Prior to the release of Don't You (Forget About Me), Simple Minds had achieved a fair amount of critical success. However, there is little point denying that this is the song that kicked the door to "the big league" wide open for us" - Jim


"...And so to this week, where we are soon to be making our way to the Nevada Desert, and above all to that mecca of gambling and many other ritzy pastimes - Las Vegas. Lady Luck certainly happened our way when producer Keith Forsey and movie director, John Hughes came banging on our door in November ’84. The Breakfast Club movie had recently finished shooting and they were adamant that they wanted Simple Minds to record the main song for the soundtrack - Don’t You (Forget About Me). Plenty of others have claimed that they wanted them too, but I don’t believe a word of it."

"In any case, the success of that song/movie fast-tracked Simple Minds onto a level of success that may or may not not already have been coming our way. But it also alienated some of our until then loyal followers who had perceived Simple Minds as, a cool Euro thing only, and certainly not something to be splattered all over MTV. They were of course entitled to their opinion. It is not my favourite Minds track either. But I don’t have one to begin with! (For your info, Alive And Kicking - the follow up to Don't You - reached No. 2 on the Billboard Charts)."

"I am however eternally grateful to be associated with a record that has given so much pleasure to so many. Plus, it is always a blast to perform. Our gratitude will hopefully be evident when we walk on at the MGM Grand in Vegas this coming Sunday. That apart I must admit that I also like the notion of having sung on a record that once sat at the No. 1 position on the American Billboard Charts. Forgive the victory lap, but come on! Not too many can say that!" - Jim, 11th May 2015





lyrics
Hey, hey, hey ,hey
Ohhh...

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby.
Tell me your troubles and doubts,
Giving me everything inside and out and
Love's strange so real in the dark,
Think of the tender things that we were working on,
Slow change may pull us apart,
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't you forget about me.
Don't, don't, don't, don't.
Don't you forget about me.

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me,
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling,
Down, down, down.

Will you recognise me?
Call my name or walk on by?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling,
Down, down, down, down.

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhh...

Don't you try to pretend,
It's my feeling we'll win in the end.
I won't harm you or touch your defenses,
Vanity and security.
Don't you forget about me,
I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby.
Going to take you apart,
I'll put us back together at heart, baby.

Don't you forget about me.
Don't, don't, don't, don't.
Don't you forget about me.

As you walk on by,
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by,
Will you call my name?
When you walk away.

Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on - call my name
Will you all my name?

I say : La la la...
