Best Simple Minds Songs

The Top Ten

1 Don't You (Forget About Me) Don't You (Forget About Me) Cover Art

Even today it sounds fantastic the pubs come alive when it,s played

Great song and great opening

One of the best songs ever made.

The best songs Simple Minds has

2 Alive and Kicking Alive and Kicking Cover Art

Much as I like Breakfast Club and Don't You Forget About Me, this is an incredible song. Robin Clark's vocals are incredible, and the video for this has some of the prettiest scenery you will ever see. This song represents everything great about 80s music.

I have liked this song since the first time I heard it. The song is on my iPhone and also the video.

Great song this one should be at number 3 by far really good one

Simple minds Number 1 song believe me it's such a brilliant song

3 Belfast Child Belfast Child Cover Art

Great song, Don't you forget about me is catchy, Waterfront is a fantastic anthem, Alive and Kicking is probably for me a close second to this one but for me it doesn't get much better than this song, some day we're gonna tear the old town down!

Brilliant song. I think glittering prize should be on this list as well

This song should be number 2 not number 8 vote this one up please

Great Song This Song Should Be Number 2 Please Vote This One Up

4 Sanctify Yourself Sanctify Yourself Cover Art

Amazingly and somewhat underrated track that's arguably even better live. Say it quietly but it's better than "Don't You..." Crank it up in the car and be transported back to 1985.

Great Tune Vote This Song Up Higher

5 Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) Cover Art

Can't believe that Don't you is currently at No. 1. This song wasn't even written by the band and it's just boring. Everything else from the classic New Gold Dream or Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call beats it any time.

Amazing this song should be number 3 or 4 vote this song up please

Their best song from their best album. This is the number one song!

My favorite song by them, it's just powerful as many of you says

6 All the Things She Said All the Things She Said Cover Art

The video for this song seems really funny and ahead if it time at the point when it was made

Damn, it's sad to know that this song ain't not number 1!

Really should be much higher. Top 5, in my opinion.

This song Rocks! (Even more than Don't You)

7 Promised You a Miracle Promised You a Miracle Cover Art

Bass, guitar, vocals - the business! Ethereal Young Jimmy and little Charlie. The undoubted best SM track. 1983 live Pinkfest lovve it!

One of the best new waves songs of all-time

Awesome underrated song!

8 Waterfront Waterfront Cover Art

Only beaten by Wont get fooled again in my Rock top 100

One of the best openings to an anthem ever

Great song, played live nothing better.

Love it! easily their best song.

9 Glittering Prize Glittering Prize Cover Art

A couple of years ago when I was down as I have ever been in my life and I was thinking silly thought's, for what ever reason I switched over to the Red Button, low and behold there was Simple Minds doing there Acoustic Gig, I watched it over and over again until it was of air, Glittering Prize is my No1, See The Lights No2 with New Gold Dreams No3.
I then went out and bought their New CD, Jim Kerr, Charlie Buchell and the band don't know that their Gig saved my life. God Bless Simple Minds XXX Thank You Jim Kerr.

This is so much better than 10. Bass riff to die for and beautiful complex song. Brings joy to me. Before they sold out they were so much better

Great tune should be in top ten vote this song up please

This song was way ahead of its time. One of the best.

10 New Gold Dream New Gold Dream Cover Art

This is my favourite song of all time, I first heard it on on Radio One in the late 80s and bought the album the day after.It's brilliant live too.

Never heard a better song than this, so for sure best song of all time

One of my favourite songs of all time and great live

Like any song on New Gold Dream, just great.

The Contenders

11 Ghost Dancing Ghost Dancing Cover Art

17 Hunter and the Hunted Hunter and the Hunted Cover Art

Best simple minds song ever, never get sick of this song all time fave of any band.

Best song and my all time favourite (of all artists not just SM ) since 1982 - especially the dreamtime mix.

An earlier song from the "New Gold Dream" album, very catchy and melodic

Most innovative and best song by simple minds ever

18 Mandela Day Mandela Day Cover Art

Iconic - does not receive the recognition it deserves.

A really relaxing song!

19 Home Home Cover Art

Honestly, this is there BEST song. I fell in love when I heard this.

When I am sick. I play this single every time.

20 Real Life Real Life Cover Art

Killer song from begining to end, does deserve a top ten spot, at least though. This is quintessential simple minds

21 Hypnotised

This is pure epicness, the beggining of a song is great. I just wonder how it didn't come up to top 10 because it totally deserves it. Probably one of my favourite songs from Simple Minds.

This is absolutely great. The lyrics, guitar sound, the voice of jim, the sense are something out of this world..

Slide guitar like none other. Best song by far!

Mind blowing guitar parts are the main reason why I vote forthis one.

22 Come a Long Way

This one's so catchy and powerful that definitely deserves sky-rocketing to the top 10 beyond any reasonable doubt. such one of the greatest examples this band has it.

23 She's a River

Under exposed but powerful. Needs to be considered in top 3

This is by far there best song and should be # 1

THE best of their repetiore, bar none.

24 Love Song Love Song Cover Art

Best Simple Minds song ever.

The first Simple Minds tune I ever heard, Love Song still sounds good today (unlike the rest of their songs)
