Movie Series #1: “Don’t You Forget About Me”- Simple Minds

Sometimes the best way to find music is to watch movies. Weird, yes but movies always have a variety of artists and if you like a certain song, you can look up more by that particular artist/group/etc. For my next few posts I am going to feature some of my favorite songs that I found through movies. It is definitely not going to by an all-encompassing list since that would take weeks.

Today’s song, “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds, is featured at the end of The Breakfast Club, a movie about teenagers, stereotypes, growing up and a movie that you must watch if you haven’t already.

Best characters: It is a tie between Judd Nelson (The HOT rebel) and Ally Sheedy (The recluse/”weirdo”) who is gorgeous, both in The Breakfast Club and especially now.

She stars in the movie High Art, which I must see.

Anyways, getting back to the music. I love this song and as luck would have it, I found a fan-made music video that is amazing. It is made by Cecelia Webber, who I first found years ago because of her creative music videos but it turns out she is also a digital artist that crafts beautiful graphic images using human forms to produce stunning butterflies and flowers. Check out her artwork along with her video…

Cecelia, I wish I could move my body half as well as you move yours. And your make-up and costume? Perfect for the song.

Question of the Day: Ever watched The Breakfast Club? What did you think of it?

    Two things.
    1. Ally Sheedy kind of looks like Mary Louise Parker
    2. That body artwork is really cool

  2. I love this song. And, I have hoped for years now that I never develop dandruff anything like kooky Allison’s. So far, mission successful!
