Once Upon a Time is the seventh studio album by Scottish pop rock band Simple Minds, released in October 1985 by record label Virgin (A&M in the US). The album paired the group with music producer Jimmy Iovine. He had worked with artists featuring an aggressive guitar-based sound, including singer-songwriters Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Nicks, and he brought that approach to the band. Iovine particularly pushed frontman Jim Kerr, aiming for more energetic vocals.

This album was one of their best, most likely leading the pack in the band's album roster, because it exuded raw energy and solid composition not entirely captured on previous albums.
Originally released in October 1985, ONCE UPON A TIME became Simple Minds’ most successful album to date, shifting two million copies in two months, hitting the top spot in the UK and making the top ten in America. It spawned four top-twenty singles and launched a fifteen month long world tour that kept Simple Minds’ name in the music weeklies for most of 1986. And with Jimmy Iovine and Bob Clearmountain providing a production dream team, and Anton Corbijn contributing to its instantly recognisable artwork, then ONCE UPON A TIME had all the attributes of a classic 1980s album

Simple Minds have been around a long time and are still performing (just in Philly on October 18) and releasing new material. They have a lengthy catalog of music and like many groups that have survived the music industry have evolved over the years. This album marked a change in direction for them from their earlier stuff, which I highly recommend checking out. Once Upon a Time was highly successful commercially, also, as it followed closely after the song they performed for The Breakfast Club soundtrack, "Don't you forget about m. This was an excellent song, which they made.
Artist: Simple Minds. Album: Once Upon A Time (1985). A A. Once Upon a Time. And you. Yes you speak to me tonight. And you say so, say so. That once upon a time. When love, love was a white dove. And hope, long live hope, could spin the whole world 'round. I'm talking east to west.
