I caught this on Kerrang radio the other morning - they were doing a 'guess the year' thing. I'd not heard it for years and years, and remembered how much I liked it.

Took me a few minutes of racking my brain to remember the first of these, though I heard it a few weeks ago on radio while I was driving, and it actually made me pull over the car and listen, as it took me back to my youth in England, and it always moved me so much...the second track is better known (Simple Minds) and I heard it on TheSoundLA 100.3 the other day...both are beautiful and very involving, about loss, and war, and innocence, and remembrance, though about very different eras (World War 1 in the trenches, and the Ulster/Northern Irish 'troubles' during the 1960's up to the 1990's)...two tracks where you really need to listen to the lyrics as carefully as you can to appreciate what great songs they are. Simple Minds have produced some stunning music over the years, and these days are off so many people's radar, though there was a time when they were one of the biggest bands on earth, this track of theirs for me is I think one of THE most moving and emotional singles of my lifetime.

You'll hate me for posting this here, but I've always loved Gwen Dickey's voice and it's produced by the great Norman Whitfield. When I heard it on the radio, the DJ spoke over the fast bit at the end, which really annoyed me!
