Enjoy this video of the Barton Hills Choir rehearsing Don’t You (Forget About Me), the signature song from the 1985 John Hughes film The Breakfast Club.

Recorded at Barton Hills Elementary School, March, 2015.
Gavin Tabone – keys, guitar, tambourine
Don Cento – guitar
‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ – written by Forsey/Schiff
Video produced by Gavin Tabone

Fun Facts:

  • Soundtrack producer Keith Forsey originally asked The Fixx, Bryan Ferry, and Billy Idol to record Don’t You (Forget About Me) for the movie, but all three declined.
  • Simple Minds initially also declined, but encouraged by their record label, agreed to record it. Don’t You (Forget About Me) became a number one hit in the United States and around the world.
  • The song’s “la-la-la” coda is a case of a placeholder becoming the actual lyric, as neither Keith Forsey nor Jim Kerr of Simple Minds could think of actual words that made sense.
