"Don't You (Forget About Me)" was Simple Minds' biggest hit - learn how to play it on piano with this tutorial!

The song was used for both the opening and closing credits of John Hughes 1985 comedy-drama film "The Breakfast Club" - one of the most famous (and certainly one of the best) college films ever made! "Don't You (Forget About Me)" was also the first song on the movie’s soundtrack album.

The song was also released as a single and became a #1 hit in the United States! It also topped the U.S. Top Rock Tracks chart for 3 weeks, and it stayed on the charts in the UK from 1985 to 1987 - very few singles managed to stay on there for so long.

Here’s a part of the songs’ famous lyrics:

“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”
