"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"
Written specifically for the movie The Breakfast Club, the song quickly became a hit for Simple Minds and propelled the Scottish band into the US pop culture.
