52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Week 47 – See the Lights by Simple Minds

I’m in a broken dream I stare out into space
You know I called you up cos nothing takes your place
I’ve got a heart of stone and it’s sinking deep inside
I want to tell you love I’m too proud to cry

Simple Minds literally has it all – great musicians, a strong guitarists, huge production, chorale singers – and Jim Kerr’s booming vocals.

They continue to record – and word has it they will tour America in the coming years and play their greatest hits.  They had many hits in the UK and the USA – but of course are best remembered for Don’t You Forget About Me.  A fine song – but there are many others I like better – and this is one of them.
