Simple Minds - Glittering Prize mp3 album

Glittering Prize" is a 1982 hit single by the Scottish rock group Simple Minds, and released on their fifth studio album New Gold Dream, released the same year. The song reached in the United Kingdom, but hit the Top 10 in Australia, New Zealand and Norway.

At first glance this seems a particularly silly compilation, not least of all because "Glittering Prize" isn't actually on it, and neither are any of Simple Minds' releases from 1981 or 1992. So forget the misleading title. How could they be? This compilation only contains a measly 12 tracks. Back in 1992, Virgin released a 16-track compilation entitled Glittering Prize 81/92; it was a .

Glittering Prize is a compilation album by Simple Minds, released in 1992. It spans the period from Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call (the first album recorded by Simple Minds for Virgin Records) to Real Life. The album omits the earliest period of Simple Minds’ recording career, which yielded three albums released on Arista (only reissues are on Virgin). At the time of its release, the album was promoted by the double A-side single Love Song/Alive and Kicking, where Love Song appeared in a remixed form

Glittering Prize Lyrics. We can remember quiet side of midnight We can remember attraction of fame Like a glittering prize, I saw you up on a clear day First taking heart, then a last breath away. See it in the eyes, satellite skies We were spending time, we were staring out Take in, take in more, endless breath away We were staring out, now we're staring in Could there ever be ever more than one Called an act of love, can you you never stop?

Simple Minds Format: Vinyl. Anger about Prince inspired new Simple Minds album. Simple Minds were a very good New Wave band which gradually metamorposed into an average arena band. Lowlights include the poor, treacly "Mandela Day" and the totally horrible "Belfast Child". On a brighter note, "Love Song" is their masterpiece, while "Don't You (Forget About Me)", "Someone, Somewhere, In Summertime", "Glittering Prize", and "Let There Be Love" are all excellent. The other tracks fall somewhere in between. Basically, the early material makes this collection worthwhile.
