The song "Don't You (Forget About Me)" plays in the opening and closing credits of John Hughes' teen movie 'The Breakfast Club' (1985). But the song does way more than that: it truly defines the film—and a generation of viewers.  

In this short virtual event with Chicago Movie Tours, examine in depth Simple Minds' song "Don't You (Forget about Me)." In the process, you'll hear behind-the-scenes stories from 'The Breakfast Club,' learn about the music's connections to MTV, and understand how the iconic song still functions as a metaphor for victory.
