Music Video: Simple Minds – Promised You A Miracle

This week’s music video is from Simple Minds – the force behind “Don’t You Forget About Me.” Well, I guess the western side of the pond unfortunately did, so I’m rectifying that! This another band that’s been here the whole time. Last time it was Madness.

This track comes off their newest album Acoustic (released Novemeber 11, 2016). It’s sort of greatest hits compilation, but re-recorded a la Unplugged.

Promised You A Miracle (track 2 and seen above) features fellow Scot KT Tunstall, and is a dynamite rendition. The whole album is really, whether you know the original tracks or not.

For reference, here is the original, electric version from 1982’s New Gold Dream (81/82/83/84)

And for good measure, here’s Blindfolded from 2014’s Big Music
