SIMPLE MINDS - ONCE UPON A TIME (1985)
If big drums and melodic anthems are your thing then this is about as good as it gets from the Minds.
Four hit singles were released from the album; Alive and Kicking (UK #7, US #3), All the Things She Said (UK #9, US #28), Sanctify Yourself (UK #10, US #14), and Ghost Dancing (UK #13).
Released in September 1985, Alive and Kicking was the first single to be lifted from Once Upon A Time. The song reached #7 in the UK and #3 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. Previously, Don't You Forget About Me had been #1 in the U.S. following the success of the movie The Breakfast Club.
