After a few days off because of finals, it is only fitting that we close out our first day back with a bang. Helping us with that is folk duo on-the-rise The Wind and The Wave with their stellar, folk-styled cover of the cult classic “Don’t You Forget About Me” by the Simple Minds.
Rising to massive popularity in the mid 80’s after its appearance in the cult classic, The Breakfast Club, “Don’t You Forget About Me” quickly became one of the most recognizable songs from the 80’s. While all of us are accustomed to its 80’s synth pop sound, Dwight Baker and Patricia Lynn of The Wind and The Wave decided to add their own unique folk flavor to the mix.
The result is nothing short of spectacular, as The Wind and The Wave completely transform “Don’t You Forget About Me” from a 80’s pop classic into a fun, upbeat folk jam.
