Music Monday: Don’t You Forget About Me

As I was writing my book review for Mahairi McFarlene’s book Don’t You Forget About Me, I could not help but remember the song created by Simple Minds in the eighties. I used to love this song and always sang along with it when it was played on the radio. I remember, as well, watching the video repeatedly (back them we used to record the videos of our favourite songs to play again on afternoons spent with our friends).

And of course, one can’t forget to mention the iconic film The Breakfast Club for which the song was used.

Don’t You Forget About Me is definitely a song that brings back memories of a time period in my life: of my teenage years and all that comes with.

Don you remember this song? What memories does it bring back?

  1. It brings back memories of Director John Hughes and his “brat pack” films – not only “The Breakfast Club” but “Sixteen Candles” and “Pretty In Pink” as well – great song, thanks for sharing this!
