Battle of the Bands - Don't You (Forget About Me)
For today's Battle of the Bands, I'm featuring the signature song from the film. 'Don't You (Forget About Me)', by the Simple Minds. Instead of comparing Simple Minds (who I feel no one could compete with), to another band, I found two other artists who have covered the same song. These two versions can be found below. I hope you like at least one of the versions.
Are there any 80s films you love?
Which character do you identify with from this film?
Can you guess which character I was in High School?
So those are the two contenders. Ignoring the actual videos, who do you think performs the song best? I collected the two bands to battle it out, now it's your job. Time to vote on your favourite. Please vote for your preferred song choice and let me know in the comments. Also, please let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 30th when I'll cast my own vote and announce the winner in a separate posting.
Did you enjoy the Battle of the Bands feature? Come back on the 1st October when I'll have a new battle. Also, be sure to check out my friends below who have banded together to offer up their own musical battles.
