Simple Minds- Don't You Forget About Me
This was another one of those mid 1980's ballads that struck a chord with me. I was in the middle of my CCS college life, young, goofy & idealistic and this song sort of captures some of that naive innocence back then.
Not only did it have fame in John Hughes' "The Breakfast Club" but it was also used as a touching closing credit in an episode of Futurama where Phillip Fry discovers that his adversarial brother had named his son in honor of him.
