Simple Minds – Sanctify yourself

“Sanctify yourself” represents, in my opinion, a sort of manifest of what Simple Minds were between 1985 and 1986. Probably not their purest period, but definitely their most successful period in terms of sales. Looking at the tile, maybe Jim Kerr did not really respect the commandments,

Talk Talk – Life’s what you make it

“Life’s what you make it” is definitely a song with a great title. And it is surely great song, even after more than 30 years. I didn’t like the video, I must say, insects, animals… but some may like it as well!

And I’ll be (The numbers on your watch)
And I’ll be (Your hands to stop the time)
I’ll even be your danger sign
