When this song came out, when the Breakfast Club movie came out, I was just finishing up Catholic school and graduating to high school. One of the kids in the class of '85 had a party to celebrate it. There was a DJ spinning records and all the kids dancing or mixing it up. The DJ had a few games with records as prizes -- actual vinyl 45s. I won a round and had to choose. I didn't know any of the music of the day because I was in my punk phase and didn't listen to anything that wasn't Black Flag, Minor Threat, or hardcore. [poser!] The girls said to take the Simple Minds single. I'm always up for listening to what girls say. It wasn't a bad choice. It's a song that reminds me of youth, but I'm sure that for my classmates, the title does not apply for me.
