One Hit Wonder: The Breakfast Club

So back in February 1985 a movie titled “The Breakfast Club” was released featuring the hit song “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds. In 1987 a song titled “Right on Track” by the band The Breakfast Club was released. Confused?

A little known fact about The Breakfast Club is Madonna was the drummer for the band in the early 1980s. The band was also nominated for Best New Artist at the 1988 Grammy Awards.

  1. I “tracked” (heh) this one down a few months ago when it popped into my head out of the blue. I don’t remember it being a huge hit, but I remember hearing it on the radio.

  2. Woah, I can honestly say I’ve never seen this video before in my life. Thanks for sharing, Six Million Dollar Jedi!
