music is life, music is breath, music is us

Simple Minds-“Waterfront”

Called the Scottish U2, I really don’t think it is fair to compare Jim Kerr and gang to anyone. They have a unique sound that is all theirs. Besides Jim’s aggressive and crooning singing, I love the guitar riff on this track (harmonics and whammy bar, now THAT is coolness personified).

    Their sound is unofficially the sound of my generation. With the Breakfast Club. This song has the familiar sound. Never heard it before good post choice!

    • Thanks man. SM loves opening with this track for their concerts. I covered Don’t You (Forget About Me) on guitar and vox and the vid has more likes than dislikes! lol I’ve gotten some hate for it too…
