This one’s easier than the last one, in my opinion. Name three Simple Minds songs. No peeking. I actually had a couple Simple Minds albums, so I can name like four or five. Show me what you got.

The whole thing is that their one hit was an outlier for a soundtrack and their normal output sounds nothing like it, right?
Obligatory “Don’t You Forget About Me”. Lemme see: “Promised You a Miracle”…. and I guess that’s it. I can think of videos for a few others but the tunes & titles aren’t coming to me. I wouldn’t claim to know them well.
They’re in an interesting category. I want to say they had lots of UK hits and were a bigger deal over there. But they didn’t write, and to my understanding particularly like, their big U.S. hit. They were saddled with it anyway. Being a famous performer must be pretty weird sometimes.
Isaac, I wouldn’t say that. In both cases (Wang Chung and Simple Minds) the lesser known tracks are in line with the hits as far as style and content goes
Josh, I’d never heard that about Simple Minds. I do remember in the early-to-mid 90s they went down to three members and staged a US comeback tour with a new album. “She’s a River” was maybe one of the titles.
So, “Don’t You Forget About Me”, “Alive and Kicking”, “Once Upon a Time”, “All the Things She Said She Said”, “Ghost Dancing”, “East At Easter”, and of course “Promised You a Miracle”, which I wouldn’t’ve thought of but Josh Did.
This is fun. I’ll see if I can come up with more candidate bands. They have to be a band with more than one hit, but not as many as three hits. So what? Two-hit wonders?
