neon lights


composer
Written by: Bartos/Hutter/Schneider


publisher
GEMA/Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK


background
"Whilst Simple Minds were known probably primarily for playing live and the whole big stadium sound, the truth of the matter is that Simple Minds came out of a real electronic basis and our first one or two records were pretty much machine records."

"It goes without saying then, that Kraftwerk would be a huge influence on our band and on our sound. And we've chosen to cover one on Kraftwerk's more, let's say human songs. The song is called Neon Lights and we've used it as the album title as well." - Jim




lyrics
Neon lights,
Shimmering neon lights,
And at the fall of night,
This city's made of light.
