Simple Minds best known for their 1985 number one hit "Don' t you (Forget About Me)" from the film The Breakfast Club.

Scotland's Simple Minds evolved from a post-punk art rock band influenced by Roxy Music into a grand, epic-sounding pop band along the lines of U2. The inaugural 1978 lineup of Simple Minds featured a rhythm section of Tony Donald on bass and Brian McGee on drums, plus keyboardist Mick McNeil; Donald was soon replaced by Derek Forbes.

The group began a transition to a more accessible pop style with the albums Sons and Fascination and Sister Feelings call, originally issued together and subsequently split up. After Bryan Ferry rejected the opportunity to sing "Don' t You (Forget About Me)," Simple Minds almost did so as well; Kerr was dissatisfied with the song's lyrics, which he regarded as formulaic.
