D: Don’t You (Forget About Me)
“Don’t you forget about me I’ll be alone,
dancing and you know it baby”
Even though Careless Whisper was rated by Billboard as the number one song of 1985, I personally think this should be number one. Not only does this song epitomize the ’80s, it is THE song of a generation and the anthem of Gen Xers everywhere!
Last week I went to the 30th Anniversary showing of The Breakfast Club. When this song came on everyone in the theatre started signing. It was awesome!
I read recently that the group Simple Minds doesn’t like the song and they refuse to play it in concert. That is a shame, especially since it was their only number one hit!
