  1. lets face it you can make one good album out of the best bits of reel to reel cacophony and life in a day, empires and dance is good on its own as is sons and fascination/sister feelings call & new gold dream, then you can make another almost decent album out of the best of sparkle in the rain and once upon a time.. the rest are nowhere…
    sad to see them old and bloated and past it but then i'm not exactly looking too hot myself these days!
    they were an awesome live act around that 1981//2/3 time though

  2. Simple Minds – I Travel Lyrics
    Cities, buildings falling down
    Ideal homes falling down
    These pictures I see on the wall
    Timeless leaders stand so tall
    Assassin in a hit and run
    Asia steals a new born son
    Evacuees and refugees
    Presidents and monarchies

    Travel round
    I travel round
    Decadence and pleasure towns
    Tragedies, luxuries, statues, parks and galleries

    Europe has a language problem
    Talk, talk, talk, talk, talking on
    In central Europe
    Men are marching
    Marching on and marching on
    Love songs playing in the restaurants
    Airport playing "Bi Some Lo"

    Travel round
    I travel round
    Decadence and pleasure towns
    Tragedies, luxuries, statues, parks and galleries

    Europe has a language problem

    Europe has a language problem
    America has a language problem
    I Travel
    Euro-Bureau-Interpol
    Making love to the criminals
    Asia has a language problem
    I Travel
    And on and on and on and on and on and on and on
    Songwriters: MCGEE, BRIAN / KERR, JAMES / MACNEIL, MICHAEL JOSEPH / BURCHILL, CHARLES / FORBES, DEREK

  3. A timeless song. Well ahead of it's time. For youngsters out there, this is from 1980! Think about that. Now listen to Liaison or Bittersweet from their last album Big Music (2014). Cheers. 🙂

  4. I never knew that a band from my childhood could have such a positive impact on my life not only as a young adult but as a middle-aged business professional. I consider Simple Minds music a part of my everyday life. I had the luxury of meeting Jim, his father and son through my friend Marlene H. in New York City (Roseland). It is no surprise that your band has transcended generations and will continue to do so. Keep the music coming and I LOVED this video. Thank you!
