Friday Video #71: Travel Round, Travel Round

Simple Minds may be best remembered by US listeners for their 1985 hit "(Don't You) Forget About Me," but one of my favorite songs of theirs would be "I Travel," which is taken rom their 1980 album Empires and Dance. Here's a clip of the band performing the song live at the Oxford Road Show back in 1983. Notice that in the clip singer Jim Kerr slightly changes a lyric in the second verse--in the original version it goes: "Love songs playing in the restaurants,
Airport playing Brian Eno." Here he changes it to "Aiport playing 'Baby's On Fire!'," which refers to a Brain Eno song released in 1974.
