Simple Minds - Someone Somewhere (In Summertime)


On this date in 1982, Simple Minds released their eleventh single, "Someone Somewhere (In Summertime)". It was backed by "King Is White And In The Crowd". The 12 inch version included a third track, an instrumental called "Soundtrack For Every Heaven". The two tracks on the 7 inch single appeared on their sixth album, New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84), though the A side was a different version than was on the album. The 12 inch bonus track was a non-LP track. The single reached the #36 spot on the U.K. singles chart. Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill had started out together in a punk band called Johnny & The Self Abusers. They disbanded and Simple Minds was formed. The Glasgow, Scotland new wave band continues on.
