Radio 51, side B, track 8: “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds, #75 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About MeOh, Simple Minds, do you know I forgot that I’d already recorded this song off the radio before?  Weird.  Not only that, but this was the song that ushered out 2014.  And the post about it wasn’t half bad, either.  So yeah, a song imploring me not to forget about you, and a post talking about me not wanting to be forgotten?  Totally forgotten.  Great.  That says a lot, doesn’t it?  Well, luckily, I was the only one who forgot about this song, which is why it’s on the Top 90 of the ’80s.  There’s no point in writing anymore about it since obviously it’ll be out of my head as soon as I hit “Post”.  But thanks for making such a great song, Simple Minds.  I promise to try to remember not to forget.

“Don’t You (Forget About Me)”

Hey, hey, hey, heeey

Ooooooo wooooah

Wonchoo
Come see about me

I’ll be alone
Dancin’, you know it, baby

Tell me
Your troubles and doubts
Givin’ everything inside and out, and

Love’s strange
Surreal in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on

Slow change may pull us apart

When the light gets inta your heart, baaaby
Donchoo

Forget about me

Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t

Donchoo

Forget about me

Will you stand abooove me
Look my waaaay, never love me
Rain keeps fallin’, rain keeps fallin’ down, down, down

Will you recogniiize me
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps fallin’, rain keeps fallin’ down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, heeey

Ooooooo woooah

Donchoo
Try an’ pretend

It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end, I won’t
Harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity
Insecurityyy, ahh

Donchoo forget about me
I’ll be alone
Dancin’, you know it, baby

Goin’ toooo take you apart

I’ll put us back together at heart, baby

Donchoo

Forget about me

Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t

Donchoo

Forget about me

As you walk on by

Will you call my naaaame
