Song of the Day: 'Promised You a Miracle' by Simple Minds

Kind of a shame that Simple Minds are best known for their "Breakfast Club" song seeing as they released one of the decade's best singles, "Promised You a Miracle," off their 1982 album, "New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84)."

A great band ruined by a shitty Top 40 hit. Saw them in 1985, they were an amazing live act, love the albums "Empires and Dance" and "Sparkle In The Rain". Great choice!

oh yeah! love pre-Breakfast Club Simple Minds, and New Gold Dream is just brilliant throughout.

Yes, Taffy - New Gold dream is a shimmering masterpiece! Someone Somwhere is Summertime still leaves me breathless!
