Simple Minds – “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” – (1985)

From one of the definitive movies of the decade comes one of the definitive songs. Yeah, it wasn’t on the countdown because I think “Alive and Kicking” is amazing, but this should not go overlooked. It’s probably the most obvious song absent from the list. It was a #1 in the U.S., The Netherlands, and Canada. It is most famous for its inclusion in the final scene of The Breakfast Club.
