Smooth Operator's 80's Song Of The Week, 1-29-2007
by Mark on 1/29/2007 (1)

"Don't You (Forget About Me)" is a song written for the sound track of the 1985 John Hughes movie The Breakfast Club. The song writers were disco producer Keith Forsey, who won an Oscar for "Flashdance, (What a Feeling)" and Steve Schiff.

Forsey asked both Bryan Ferry and Billy Idol to record the song, but both declined. He then asked the Scottish New Wave band Simple Minds, who initially refused as well, but then agreed under the encouragement of their label, A&M. According to one account, the band "rearranged and recorded 'Don’t You (Forget About Me)' in three hours in a north London studio and promptly forgot about it."

Though by all accounts Simple Minds did not much care for it, propelled by the success of The Breakfast Club, the song became the band's only number-one U.S. hit. The song was not included on Simple Minds' subsequent Once Upon a Time album, finally appearing on the 1992 best-of Glittering Prize 81/92. I'll bet they didn't forget to endorse those big ass royalty checks after that, though! Ahhh, the often arrogant 80's!

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...
