How Many ’80s Teen Flicks Can You Name In This Supercut Soundtracked To ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’

Cy Curnin from The Fixx, Bryan Ferry and Billy Idol to record the song, but all three declined; Idol later performed a cover of it on his 2001 compilation album Greatest Hits. Schiff then suggested Forsey ask Simple Minds who, after refusing as well, agreed under the encouragement of their label, A&M. According to one account, the band”rearranged and recorded ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ in three hours in a north London studio and promptly forgot about it.

Classic song then and now. See you can name all the teen flicks in this supercut.
