Glittering Prize 1981-1992. Six years separate that song from 1991's "See the Light," but the pair are wed by U2, whose ubiquitous chiming sound provided inspiration for both. Simple Minds own epic qualities were in a more understated vein, as "Don't You (Forget About Me)" beautifully illustrates. As a greatest-hits album, this Glittering Prize is not one, but as a one-disc set that captures the band's soul, it can't be beat.

The first Simple Minds album, Life in a Day, was produced by John Leckie and released by Arista in April 1979. The album's title track "Life in a Day" was released as Simple Minds' first single and reached No. 62 in the UK Gallup charts, with the album reaching No. 30 in the LP charts. The next single ("Chelsea Girl") failed to chart. The album was a commercial breakthrough and generated charting singles including "Glittering Prize" (which reached the UK Top 20 and Australian Top 10). Simple Minds were soon categorised as part of the New Romantic outgrowth of new wave (along with Duran Duran and others). While some tracks ("Promised You a Miracle", "Colours Fly and Catherine Wheel") continued the formula perfected on Sons and Fascination, other tracks ("Someone Somewhere in Summertime", "Glittering Prize") were undisguised pop.
