From Simple Minds to Simple Minds by Daniel Dilworth

Simple Minds were a Scottish band who had a big hit in 1989 called Belfast Child, which was about The Troubles and was set to the tune of She Moved Through the Fair. Sinead O’Connor performed this song on the soundtrack to Michael Collins, which starred Liam Neeson. Liam Neeson appeared in The Phantom Menace, the first film in the sequence of Star Wars films. Star Wars was the brainchild of George Lucas, who released the first film, A New Hope, in 1977. This film, along with Indiana Jones, made Harrison Ford a household name. Ford appeared in a minor role in the film Apocalypse Now, which starred Martin Sheen. Martin’s son, Emilio Estevez, appeared in the film The Breakfast Club, which is famous for its opening song Don’t You (Forget About Me), which was performed by Jim Kerr and his band, Simple Minds.
