The movie:The Breakfast Club
The song: 'Don't You (Forget About Me)', Simple Minds

Forever associated with one of the all-time greatest film finales, the Simple Minds track never fails to elicit a Judd Nelson-esque fist pump from children of the 80s. It was the band’s only number one hit in the States, and stayed in the UK charts for two years.

Bonus knowledge: Bryan Ferry and Billy Idol were both approached to record the song but declined. Idol later covered it in 2001.
