#SLS ~ 1/30/22

Look ๐Ÿ‘€ HERE for the rules and ping back of #SLS. Today the prompt is songs featured in films that made the charts. Iโ€™m an 80s baby and John Hughes made a string of movies ๐Ÿฟ that left an indelible impact on me and my friends. One of my favorite movies ๐ŸŽฅ of his is The Breakfast Club.

In May 1985, the Simple Minds song ๐ŸŽถ Donโ€™t You (Forget About Me) ๐ŸŽถ from The Breakfast Club soundtrack made it to number-one (and their only number-one in the US). Songwriters: Keith Forsey and Steve Schiff.

To this day, when I hear those first notes, I see Judd Nelsonโ€™s criminal bad boy John Bender walking across the football field on his way home from detention. Raising his hand in an eff it salute.

More at the the wiki if youโ€™re interested.

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, woah

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

Will you stand above me
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down
Will you recognise me
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, woah

Don’t you try to pretend
It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end
I won’t harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity, insecurity ah

Don’t you forget about me
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I’ll put us back together at heart, baby

Don’t you forget about me
Don’t don’t don’t don’t
Don’t you forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away
Oh will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?

I say:
La la la…

When you walk on by
And you call my name…
