This soundtrack is mostly remembered for the song "Don't You (forget about me)" - performed by Simple Minds. Which was written by Keith Forsey, who had just become the drummer for The Psychedelic Furs, & Produced by Steve Schiff . The two of them wrote/composed 5 songs on the album.
Bryan Ferry (Roxy Music) was originally approached for this song, but he declined.
Eventhough all of the radio play "Don't You" received in the US increased album sales of "Once Upon a Time" and catapulted Simple Minds into mainstream success in the US, Jim Kerr (of Simple Minds) didn't really like the song; calling it "campy" & so it was not released on their 1985 album "Once Upon a Time". The song didn't do nearly as well in the U.K., where Simple Minds was already well known and had a strong fan base. And eventhough the song "Don't You (forget about me)" was one of the most popular songs in the 80's - it was not well received by many hard core fans of Simple Minds.
The soundtrack, IMHO, is just ok. The only other stand out song is Wang Chung's "Fire In The Twilight". If you are picking it up for 'Don't You (forget about me)" I suggest listening to the other song samples first or buying it used. You'd do better buying Simple Mind's "Glittering Prize", which has "Don't You (forget about me)" on it as well as some of their more popular favorites of the 80's including: "Alive and Kicking ", "Promised You a Miracle", "Sanctify Yourself ", "All the Things She Said" & "Someone Somewhere in Summertime".

For anyone who grew up during the 80s, you've undoubtedly seen "The Breakfast Club," and are familiar with the hit single "Don't You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds. You may even have thought "What a great song! I have to own it!" If you're going into a purchase of this CD with that mindset, you may want to hold off. "Don't You" is perhaps one of THE most memorable anthems of the 1980s. It defines this film, and is one of the most recognizable songs to define an entire decade. Unfortunately, "Don't You" is the ONLY worthwhile part of this album, and actually purchasing it should be left to hardcore fans of the John Hughes film.
As a soundtrack, "Breakfast Club" falls flat. Half the album is some very forgettable instrumental music, and the other half is filled with tracks by some great 80s artists who donated some really bad music.
If you'll read the other reviews, you'll notice that every one mentions "Don't You" or loving the movie, but there are not very many comments on the rest of this CD. And unfortunately, the price is a bit expensive for a single song. If you want to own the Simple Minds hit, there are dozens and dozens of 80s music compilations that feature it, and best of all, you get a CD with a bunch of other great songs with it, instead of a lot of fluff from an otherwise great film.

my GODS! This is the movie where I absolutely fell in LOVE with Judd Nelson. The musik makes me think so much.. The movie is brilliant.. I love it.. It's so great. No lies, I have watched the movie at least once EVERY DAY in the past 6 months except for a few days. Call me obsessed (hell, I do.), I don't care. This is, by far, one of the best movies ever made.
(judd = MINE) ^_^;;

After watching the movie, I just knew I had to get the soundtrack! I was glad I did. While "Don't You Forget About Me" was the signature hit, "Fire In The Twilight" and "Heart To Hot To Hold" are underrated gems that made the soundtrack a polished masterpiece. All three are my favorite songs from the album. "Don't You Forget About Me" holds an emotional message through its' dancy beat, and overall beautiful sound, and "Fire In The Twilight" (my most favorite off the album), provides candy for the ears with beautiful, solid, dancy, 80's new wave rock that makes you want to get up and just run with the sound ringing in your ears, and with the image of the students running from the teacher in the movie (which is the part where this song begins). "Heart To Hot To Hold," contains kind of a groovey, infectious, and unique beat that makes you want to "groove" along with it. "We Are Not Alone" is a very high-strung, dance-pop piece of 80's sound with intense lyrics. You cannot stay in your seat when you listen to that one! "Didn't I Tell You," is an all around great 80's dance-pop anthem, never ceasing to make you move your feet. Of course there are the great instrumentals in "The Reggae," "Love Theme," and "I'm The Dude," which gels everything together to form one of the best soundtracks of the 80's. The only song on the album that seems to have weakness is "Waiting," in my opinion. It plays second fiddle to the other songs on the album, since it seems to lack variety. It's still an okay song just the same, though. If you cannot get enough 80's music, and you love to dance and groove-on-down, definitely buy this album! It's a must-have!
