Simple Minds - Once Upon A Time: Wikipedia Album Entry
Once Upon a Time is the seventh studio album by Simple Minds, released in 1985. Due to the popularity of the Keith Forsey-penned "Don't You (Forget About Me)" on The Breakfast Club soundtrack, interest in Simple Minds was at an all-time high by the time this album came out.
The band decided to leave the career-defining cut off the album, and instead let singles like "Alive and Kicking" (UK #7, US #3), "All the Things She Said" (UK #9, US #28), "Sanctify Yourself" (UK #10, US #14), and "Ghost Dancing" (UK #13) speak for themselves. It was a ploy that seemed to pay off as the album topped the UK charts, and peaked on the US charts at number 10.
Virgin reissued the album on a remastered CD in 2002 (cardboard vinyl replica edition) and early 2003 (jewel-case).
