On this day in history (October 21, 1985), Simple Minds released their 7th studio album Once Upon A Time featuring the singles Alive And Kicking, Sanctify Yourself and All The Things She Said. This was the bands first album following the success of Don’t You Forget About Me from the Breakfast Club Soundtrack. The band deliberately left the track off this album as they were originally reluctant to record it in the first place.
