Listing Detail Tabs

Once Upon a Time is the seventh studio album by Simple Minds, originally released in 1985. The album went stratospheric and increased the band’s popularity globally, which had blown-up since the release of the Keith Forsey-penned "Don't You (Forget About Me)" which appeared on The Breakfast Club soundtrack and had become a No.1 hit in the US. However, the band deliberately left the track off the album due to their reluctance to record it.

Four singles were taken from the album; "Alive and Kicking" (UK No. 7, US #3), "All the Things She Said" (UK No. 9, US #28), "Sanctify Yourself" (UK No. 10, US #14), and "Ghost Dancing" (UK #13). The album topped the UK charts, and peaked at No.10 on the US charts (5 consecutive weeks in Top 10 of Billboard and 16 weeks in Top 20).
